GN 319.2 Phenolic Plastic Revolving Ball Knobs

We'd like to introduce today our new GN 319.2 Phenolic Plastic Revolving Ball Knobs, Long Shoulder Type, Tapped, in inch and metric sizes.

These RoHS-compliant revolving ball knobs can be utilized instead of other revolving handles, i.e. with handwheels. The tapped shoulder allows the ball knob to be mounted from the underside via a screw or bolt. The knob can then be easily mounted to sheet metal in a variety of thicknesses, flat bar, or castings, to create a quick cranking or turning mechanism. The hand piece is black phenolic plastic (Duroplast PF), and the shoulder is made of zinc-plated, blue passivated steel, blind tapped.

GN 128.2 Stainless Steel or Aluminum Weldable Hinges

Today we want to introduce to you our new series GN 128.2 Stainless Steel or Aluminum Weldable Hinges.

These RoHS-compliant hinges are produced from drawn weldable profiled stainless steel or aluminum extrusions. The hinge pin is retained in the lower half. Offered materials include European Standard No. 1.4308 cast stainless steel (American Standard 304C15), European Standard No. 1.4401 A4 stainless steel (American Standard Series 316), or weldable aluminum 3.3206 (American Standard 6060).

Sizes range from 60 to 180 mm in length (2.36 to 7.09 inches). Metric and inch sizes are interchangeable.

GN 300.5 Threaded Stud Type All-Stainless Steel Adjustable Levers

Our new product intro today is GN 300.5 Threaded Stud Type All-Stainless Steel Adjustable Levers, in inch and metric sizes.

These RoHS-compliant adjustable hand levers are the result of modern industrial design. Their all-stainless steel construction makes them suitable for applications in the food processing and chemical industries.

The levers have a sand blasted satin finish and are offered in two types, Type IS with screw with internal hexagon, or Type AS with screw with external hexagon. The Type AS version complies with the sanitary requirement of “preventing dammed-up fluid.”

These adjustable levers have proven to be ideal wherever parts have to be clamped in a confined space or in a particular lever position. The insert is connected to the lever via serrations which can easily be disengaged. Pulling the lever upwards disengages the serrations allowing it to be swiveled to the ideal clamping position. When releasing the lever, the serrations automatically re-engage.

You can explore our full line of Adjustable Levers in Section 1 of our online catalog.

GN 741 and GN 742 Aluminum Fill/Drain Plugs

The latest products we'd like to introduce to you are our GN 741 and GN 742 Aluminum Fill/Drain Plugs, available with metric or BSPP parallel threads.

These RoHS-compliant plugs are made of turned aluminum with a matte shot-blast finish. They are available in plain, or with fill or drain symbol laser engraved. The GN 741 types have an NBR synthetic rubber seal, while the GN 742 versions have a seal of Viton rubber. The seal is retained in a groove undercut in the mating face, which prevents it from dropping out and from extruding when the plug is tightened. For this reason the seal can be of a softer material which offers better sealing.

Metric pipe thread sizes from M14 x 1.5 to M42 x 2.0 are available, as well as BSPP parallel threads from G ¼” to G 1½”.

GN 751-AL Aluminum Fork Heads (Yokes) with Shaft Safety Retaining Clip

Today we're sharing with you about our new GN 751-AL Aluminum Fork Heads (Yokes) with Shaft Safety Retaining Clip, available in metric sizes.

These RoHS-compliant fork heads are mainly used with pneumatic or hydraulic cylinders, and consist of a fork head with KL-shaft safety or SL-shaft safety retaining clip. Type KL is a “single” shaft safety retaining clip; only one side secures the pin in place (therefore if bumped in the wrong way, may slip out of place). Type SL is a “double” shaft safety retaining clip; both sides are raised to secure the pin from both directions. To remove this retaining clip you must pull up on the spring sheet metal.

Fork body and pin are anodized, black aluminum. The fork pin shaft safety retaining clip is spring steel, hardened and tempered, zinc-plated and blue passivated. Due to the anodized coating of the fork head and pin, this component is virtually non-wearing.

GN 351 Vibration Isolation Mounts, Cylindrical Type

Today we're introducing to you our new GN 351 Vibration Isolation Mounts, Cylindrical Type, available in metric sizes.

The RoHS compliant components, also known as vibration mounts, anti-vibration mounts, vibration bobbins or rubber bumpers, are suitable for the elastic mounting of machine units such as motors, compressors and pumps. They are simple and economical construction elements. Their resilience and their broad range of different sizes and dimensions allow these mounts to be used in many applications that require vibration isolation.

These mounts are available in three types: with two tapped holes, with one tapped hole and one threaded stud, or with two threaded studs.

The mount body is made of natural rubber (NR), vulcanized, 55 durometer with a shore hardness of +/-5°). The cover plate is made of steel, zinc plated, blue passivated, molded in, as are the tapped inserts or threaded studs. Inch size tapped and stud versions available upon request. Specials, with certain minimum quantities, are also available. 40 and 70 druometer natural rubber material available upon request.

WN 648 Self-Lubricating Rod End Bearings

Our latest new product introduction is WN 648 Self-Lubricating Rod End Bearings, offered in inch sizes.

Rod ends are used in controlling and linking mechanisms in all types of machines. These RoHS-compliant rod end bearings are suitable for high load, low speed applications with hanging angles, requiring linear, rotational or oscillatory motions. They are offered in both tapped and threaded stem versions.

The rod end bearings are made of zinc-plated low carbon steel, with right or left hand threads. Ball socket is low carbon, zinc-plated steel, case hardened. The external ring is made of a special oil impregnated bronze material which makes these rod ends self-lubricating, maintenance-free, and guaranteed lowest friction. In addition, these joints have less increase of clearance after longer operating hours than rod ends with PTFE-surface outer races, and therefore higher life expectancy.

See our entire selection of joints in Section 13 of our online catalog.
