Oil and water repellent membrane

With a pore size of 1.2 µm, oleophobic and hydrophobic membranes GN 7404 provide reliable aeration and ventilation, allowing no dirt particles or droplets of oil or water to pass through the membrane.

Pressure-Equalization-Plugs-Aluminum-Oil-Water-RepellentIn order to compensate for pressure differences in both directions, JW Winco already offers various aeration and ventilation elements with integrated filters and sieves. As a new change to its product line-up, JW Winco now also offers elements equipped with membranes alongside these standard parts. This makes it possible to prevent even smaller particles and, above all, oil and water droplets from passing through the ventilation openings. Dirt and moisture are kept away from the inside of the housing, and lubricants such as oils cannot escape. While the previous filter and sieve elements have a minimum mesh size of 100 µm, the standard membrane pores are only 1.2 µm in size.

Externally, the robust membrane is additionally protected against mechanical stress by a protective sieve made of stainless steel. Ideally, the standard part GN 7404 should be installed in vertical surfaces so that no liquids can collect on the membrane, which could impair the pressure balance. At a nominal differential pressure P1 to P2 of 1 bar, the maximum air flow – depending on the diameter – is up to 34 l/min. The membrane even retains its function up to an external pressure differential of 2 bar or an internal pressure differential of up to 10 bar. The maximum operating temperature is 212 °F (100 °C).

The membranes themselves are made of a nylon fleece impregnated with an acrylic copolymer, and although the fibers are wetted, the porosity remains unchanged and can range between 0.2 and 10 µm if desired.

Using a special process, the membrane is robustly bonded to a plastic ring socket by injection molding so that it can be firmly inserted into the stainless steel or aluminum screw fittings, sealed by an O-ring.

Effective pneumatic clamping

Pneumatic toggle clamps fix workpieces in place, position mechanisms and hold molds together. In this way, they not only simplify handling, they also enable fully automated processes. JW Winco offers a number of flexible solutions for this purpose.

Toggle clamps of the series GN 860 and GN 862 feature an important unique property: Using the
Pneumatic-Clamps - Range Extended
over-center principal, which provides a positive lock during closing, the retaining force is maintained even after loss of pressure at the cylinder. The low-wear design as well as the option to detect the position of the clamping element by means of magnetic sensors offer additional dependability. The retaining force itself is transmitted to the clamping point by a clamping arm or piston rod. A hybrid toggle clamp employs a hand lever to combine manual closing with pneumatic opening – an important feature for clamping applications requiring individual clamping but simultaneous, fast and automated releasing.

The compact power clamps of series GN 864 and higher are also designed to remain in the clamped position after a pressure loss. The sophisticated kinematics ensures that the setting action is fast while the actual clamping movement takes place slowly, making pneumatic end stop dampening unnecessary. The available types differ in terms of their clamping motions and are each sold in four sizes with astonishingly high retaining forces of up to 13,300 newtons. These clamps feature high stability, long lifespan and low compressed air consumption. The offering is rounded out by various mounting options and a large range of accessories from adjustment plates and blanks for individual jaw shapes to directly attachable proximity switches.

The swing clamps of the series GN 875 / GN 876 perform two motions: The clamping arm first rotates by 90 degrees from its resting position, then travels in a linear motion down onto the workpiece in the actual clamping stroke. Thanks to the rotary movement, either to the left or the right, the workpiece remains accessible from above, allowing it to be positioned and removed directly. The freely selectable mounting brackets as well as the various clamping arm designs allow the clamps to be adapted to the specific situation. There is even a completely customizable adapter flange. The swivel clamps are available in block design with T-groove mounts for end stop sensors or in a compact design with male thread which can be easily mounted in a height adjustable fashion using a threaded adapter flange.

Steel and Stainless Steel Vertical Acting Toggle Clamps, Safety Hook and Vertical Mounting Base Available from JW Winco

JW Winco, Inc., A Ganter Company, a leading supplier of standard industrial machine components, now has available GN 810.4 Steel and Stainless Steel Vertical Acting Toggle Clamps, Safety Hook and Vertical Mounting Base.

These vertical acting toggle clamps have two locking features in both the closed and open positions. In addition, they have a safety function whereby, during closing, a spring-loaded safety hook latch ensures a secure locking connection. “This feature prevents the inadvertent unlocking of the clamp due to vibrations or an accidental attempt of loosening or opening the clamp,” said John Winkler, CEO, Office of the President at JW Winco. “Used not only on jigs and fixtures to hold raw material for machining, these toggle clamps are great for applications requiring any type of hold down, such as lids, flaps, and quick-change components.”

In the clamped position, the operating lever is in its vertical position. To open and release the clamp, which is a one hand operation, the user presses the main operating handle and the grip of the safety hook latch together to disengage the latch mechanism. “The clamps work according to the toggle principle, as the lever and clamping bar move in the same direction,” Winkler said.

In the steel version, the toggle clamp is made of case hardened steel with a zinc plated, blue passivated finish. The bearing pins are tempered while the bearing rivets are case hardened. The stainless steel version is manufactured from European Standard No. 1.4301 (AISI 304) material. The hand grips are made from a high quality, oil resistant red plastic, and all moving parts are lubricated with a special grease.

JW Winco Now Offers Plastic Torque Limiting Wing Nuts

JW Winco, Inc., A Ganter Company, a leading supplier of standard industrial machine components, now has available EN 5320 Plastic Torque Limiting Wing Nuts.

Plastic-Torque-Limiting-Wing-Nuts-EN-5320These wing nuts are used when the manually applied torque is to be limited. “When turned clockwise, the torque of the wing nut triggers an ‘over-engagement’ when the specified torque is
reached. When tightening, this will ensure the maximum permissible torque is not exceeded,” said John Winkler, CEO, Office of the President at JW Winco. “When turned counter-clockwise, the torque needed for loosening will always be transmitted properly.”

The technopolymer plastic is glass fiber reinforced and temperature resistant up to 176 °F (80 °C). The wing nuts are available in either a black matte or orange matte finish.

JW Winco also offers GN 3663 Aluminum Torque Limiting Knurled Knobs.
