JW Winco Offers Stainless Steel Folding Handles

JW Winco, Inc., A Ganter Company, a leading supplier of standard industrial machine components, now has available GN 425.9 Folding Handles in Stainless Steel.

GN-425.9-Folding-Handles-in-Stainless-SteelThe GN 425.9 stainless steel folding handles are used for lifting and pulling where the handle must only protrude a short distance in the resting position. “Two versions of the folding handles are available for side lifting, as they have a 90° limit stop,” said John Winkler, CEO, Office of the President at JW Winco. “If the application requires lifting from above, there are two other options where the handle can lift up and fold freely 180°.”

The retaining springs keep the handle in any position. “This keeps the handle in a position that can be easily accessed and prevents noise as a result of vibration in the resting position,” Winkler said. “The handle and the retaining springs are secured by mounting the handle base to the surface either from the front, back, or welding it in place.”

Designed for use in the packaging, equipment case manufacturing, material handling, and transportation industries, the finish is either matte, shot-blasted or powder coated in black with a textured finish. The folding handle has a matte, shot-blasted finish.

For a folding handle with a recessed tray see our GN 425.8 series, for a folding handle with threaded stems see our GN 425.2 series.

Steel & Stainless Steel Leveling Sets Available from JW Winco

JW Winco, Inc., A Ganter Company, a leading supplier of standard industrial machine components, now has available GN 360 Steel & Stainless Steel Leveling Sets.
The GN 360 Leveling Sets, appropriate for the work-holding and machine building industries, are used for leveling, supporting, and holding, as well as to compensate for any slope when setting up machines and systems. “A sloped or uneven floor can be a challenge when it is necessary to precisely align a machine,” said John Winkler, CEO, Office of the President at JW Winco. “The new GN 360 leveling sets offer a solution even for the heaviest of equipment.”

The leveling sets incorporate height flexibility via a threaded spindle and they have a compensating base that is permanently attached. The base is articulated and can swivel up to three degrees in any direction from the upright horizontal position. The load capacity of the leveling sets range from seven to 22.5 tons, depending on the size.

“The thread inside the head of the threaded spindle can be used to mount the leveling set from the top and can also be used as a threaded through-hole for attachment to its mating surface from below,” Winkler said. “The fine pitch thread of the spindle allows for precise adjustment and readjustment using a DIN 1810 hook wrench, while a circlip limits the maximum path of adjustment.”
