U-Handles with Customized Lengths and Bends

Bet you didn't know that J.W. Winco, Inc. offers a variety of U-handles that can be purchased in customized lengths and bends to suit particular applications.

Our RoHS-compliant selection of tubular handles include Aluminum Tubular Handles in the GN 333 offset version and the GN 333.1 straight version, in inch and metric sizes. Both have zinc die-cast legs. The same materials are used in GN 334 and GN 334.1 Aluminum Oval Tubular Handles, with different styles of legs, also in inch and metric sizes. GN 366 is another style of aluminum handles, with fiberglass reinforced technopolymer plastic legs, in metric sizes. Those materials are likewise used for GN 667 handles in metric, which have socket head cap screws for mounting. GN 669 System Handles in metric sizes are all aluminum, and offered with tapped holes or socket head cap screws, and can be mounted back to back.

The tubular handles on these items can be cut to any custom length, or bent to required angles, giving the user the option of purchasing "standard" components that function as custom parts.

DIN 906 and DIN 906-NI Threaded Plugs with Tapered Thread

We're sharing with you today our new DIN 906 and DIN 906-NI Threaded Plugs with Tapered Thread, available in metric sizes.

These RoHS-compliant threaded plugs are used to close bore holes with cylindrical tapered internal thread. The tightness depends on the medium, pressure, temperature and material pairing. The design with GPC thread coating provides a higher degree of safety.

The plugs are offered in zinc plated, blue passivated steel or in stainless steel. Both are available with or without a GPC (Precote 5) thread coating. Metric tapered pipe thread sizes from M8 x 1.0 to M48 x 1.5 are available, as well as BSPT British Standard Pipe Tapered, thread sizes R 1/8 to R 1½.
