GN 927.5 Stainless Steel Clamping Levers with Eccentrical Cam

New to our product line is our GN 927.5 Stainless Steel Clamping Levers with Eccentrical Cam, with Plastic Contact Plate, Tapped Type, in inch and metric sizes.

These RoHS-compliant clamping levers are used for rapid clamping and releasing operations. In contrast to a clamping operation utilizing only threads and a lateral force, these levers permit torque-free clamping via a combined downward vertical and cam actuated motion. The lever has been designed to insure that its movement cannot exceed the maximum clamping position.

Lever and components are all made of stainless steel. Type A has an adjustable contact plate of black technopolymer (Polyacetal POM), glass fiber reinforced, with setting nut of stainless steel. Type B has a fixed contact plate of black technopolymer (Polyamide), glass fiber reinforced. The advantages of the Type A are that the distance between the eccentrical cam and the contact surface is adjustable by means of a fine threaded knurled nut. This permits the maximum clamping force to be set by a simple adjustment. In addition this also allows the selection of a preferred lever position in relation to the clamping lever pin. With these clamping levers, thrust forces of up to 8 kN (1800 lbf) can be obtained.

EN 236 Plastic Adjustable Alignment Hinges

Today we're introducing our new EN 236 Plastic Adjustable Alignment Hinges, suitable for inch or metric applications.

These RoHS-compliant adjustable alignment hinges allow for technically and visually perfect positioning and alignment of a door in its frame. The serrations at the wings of the hinge (cross serration) and at the adjusting bushings create a form lock which prevents the hinge from moving after installation. The tips of the arrows mark the 0 reference point for easier installation. Depending on installation position (rotating by 90°) of the adjusting bushings, the hinge is adjustable both in vertical and in horizontal directions.

Hinge body is made of glass fiber reinforced plastic (Polyamide PA), matte black. The hinge pin is stainless steel, European standard 1.4305 (American Standard 303 series).

For Cinco de Mayo, we are sharing with you about our new GN 6319.1 Steel and Stainless Steel Spherical Washers, Seat and Dished Combined Type, available in metric sizes.

These RoHS-compliant spherical washers provide an “undetachable” combination of male and female spherical washers similar to DIN 6319. This simplifies storage and allows for fast and efficient installation. The stainless steel versions are used for clamping in corrosion-free environments.

Steel washers are case hardened all round, depth .2 to .4 mm, hardness (550 + 100) HV 10. Stainless steel washers are European standard 1.4305 (American standard 303 series). Both types are offered to fit bolt thread sizes M6 to M20.

EN 239.6 Technopolymer Plastic Hinges with Integrated Safety Switch

Today we're excited to introduce you to our EN 239.6 Technopolymer Plastic Hinges with Integrated Safety Switch, in metric sizes.

These hinges were designed for monitoring guard doors and covers of machines and production equipment. Opening the door activates the switch contacts, which then interrupts a protective circuit via a break contact (NC) and at the same time signal the door opening by closing a make-contact element (NO). The contact blocks are fitted with fo¬¬rce-opening slow-action contacts, i.e. they will definitely be separated when activated and have no hysteresis. The integrated design of the contact blocks makes these hinges compact, tamper-proof and easy to mount.

Housing, hinge pin and mounting bushings are made of technopolymer plastic (Polyamide PA), black matte finish. Offered types are connector plug on top, connector plug on bottom, cable connection on top, cable connection on bottom, and cable connection on back. Versions include contact block with 2NC/2NO and contact block with 3NC/1NO. Options for types with cables are 2 or 5 meter cables. Matching hinges without safety switch can also be purchased. Note that these hinges can be used with GN 965 T-Nut Assemblies and 30/40 mm aluminum profile systems with slot widths of 8 mm, as well as GN 968 T-Nut Assemblies and 30/40/45 mm aluminum profile systems with slot widths of 10 mm.
