GN 252.5 Stainless Steel Threaded Plugs

Here's another new product we've recently added to our immense line of standard machine components: GN 252.5 Stainless Steel Threaded Plugs, available in metric sizes.

These RoHS-compliant threaded plugs can be used as spring retention units or as plugs to keep debris from entering into critical threaded areas. The PRB thread coating (polyamide allround coating) acts as a clamping lock, preventing the locking screw from inadvertently being loosened and becoming detached.

Plugs are made of stainless steel, European Standard No. 1.4305 (American Standard Series 303). They are available with or without thread coating (polyamide overall thread coating). Thread sizes range from M12 to M27.

GN 1130 Steel Lifting Pins

Today we'd like to tell you about our new GN 1130 Steel Lifting Pins, available in metric sizes.

These RoHS-compliant lifting pins are carrier elements designed for fast and easy use. Pressing the red aluminum button will release the locking effect of the locking balls, allowing the load pin to be moved in or out of the holding bore hole. The shackle rotates by at least 180°, with a safety flange fitted as a safeguard against inadvertent operation. Depending on the direction of pull, the ball load pin may move freely by 360° in the holding bore hole.

These lifting pins alleviate the need to have lifting gear (e.g. load rings) permanently with the workpiece. Holding bore holes with d1 H11 tolerance are adequate for use.

Stud and shackle are made of heat-treated, manganese phosphated steel. Push button is red anodized aluminum. Spring is made of stainless steel. Lifting pins can support nominal loads from 1.5 to 4.8 kN.

GN 2424 Aluminum or Steel Cam Roller Carriages

Today we're introducing our new GN 2424 Aluminum or Steel Cam Roller Carriages for GN 2422 Cam Roller Guide Rails, available in metric sizes.

These RoHS-compliant carriages are combined with GN 2422 cam roller linear guide rails to build roller guide systems. They are used in mechanical engineering or jigmaking for the linear movement of plant equipment. Depending on cam roller carriage type, these can be mounted in axial or radial direction to the roller axes. Also depending on rail type, matching wipers are mounted, with type N featuring additional sealing lips in longitudinal direction.

Base body is offered in aluminum, or steel with zinc plated, blue passivated finish. Rollers are made of anti-friction bearing steel, hardened, with balls mounted. They are dust and splash water protected by (2RS) NBR seals and have permanent lubrication. Wiper is gray plastic (PUR) with zinc plated steel insert. Three types are offered: Normal cam roller carriage with central arrangement, radial cam roller carriage with lateral arrangement, and narrow cam roller carriage with central arrangement. Meanwhile, carriages may be purchased with wiper for either fixed bearing rail (X-rail) or floating bearing rail (U-rail).

GN 490 Aluminum Adjustable Two-Way Clamping Joints

Today we're introducing our new GN 490 Aluminum Adjustable Two-Way Clamping Joints, available in metric sizes.

These RoHS-compliant clamping joints clamp rods or tubes via a V-groove, allowing a greater Ø tolerance to be bridged. The pressure spring makes clamping and releasing easier.

Clamping joints are available with socket head cap screw or with adjustable lever. Clamp mounting is of aluminum, in either a plain, matte tumbled finish or a black powder coated, textured finish . Socket cap screws are DIN 912 and hexagon nuts are DIN 934; both are made of AISI 304 stainless steel. The GN 300.1 adjustable lever has a zinc die-cast handle with a silver powder coated, textured finish. Insert and screw are AISI 303 stainless steel; spring is AISI 301 stainless steel; spacer bushing is AISI 303 stainless steel.

No. 6312 V Crocodile Clamps with Adjustable Holders

Today we're here to introduce you to our new No. 6312 V Crocodile Clamps with Adjustable Holders, with or without Clamping Bolt or Stud Bolt, available in metric sizes.

These RoHS-compliant Crocodile Clamps are infinitely adjustable, easily expanded for every clamping height. They are used for a variety of clamping applications including those using T-grooves and threaded holes. Compression piece and adjustable holders are connected permanently to the clamp body, so the crocodile clamp can be used quickly. The clamp body is equipped with two varied clamping surfaces and can be easily turned to use one side or the other. Due to the fully assembled construction, this makes for easy set-up and handling on equipment. Crocodile clamps are especially suitable for use on injection molding machines and various presses.

Clamp body, compression piece and back support are tempered steel with galvanized finish. Clamping bolt is DIN 787; stud bolt is DIN 6379; washer is DIN 6340; nut is DIN 6330B. All these components are made of tempered steel with a blackened finish.
