GN 350.5 and GN 350.5-NI Steel and Stainless Steel Leveling Sets

Today we'd like to introduce you to two new series of products, our GN 350.5 and GN 350.5-NI Steel and Stainless Steel Leveling Sets, with Spherical Washer, with Locknut, in metric sizes.

These RoHS-compliant leveling sets are used for leveling, adjusting, and linking operations. GN 350.5 versions are made of zinc plated, blue passivated steel, 1.7225 (42 CrMo 4 V), and GN 350.5-NI versions are stainless steel, European Standard No. 1.4305 (American Standard Series 303).

Leveling sets consist of a threaded upper sleeve and a tapped lower sleeve. The fine thread allows precise, stepless setting and locking using a DIN 1810A hook wrench. An anti-rotation disk serves also as a height limiter for the maximum height. The spherical washer allows precise installation of two non-parallel planes at a required gradient up to ~4°.

GN 50.5 Retaining Magnet Assemblies, Disk-Shaped, with Tapped Hole

Another great new product has been added to our line: GN 50.5 Retaining Magnet Assemblies, Disk-Shaped, with Tapped Hole, available in metric sizes.

These RoHS-compliant magnets are a shielded magnetic assembly. To ensure that the magnetic forces are not impaired, the mounting screws must be made of non-magnetic material. For magnets with d1 diameter </= 40 mm, the magnet surface is exposed. For d1 diameters </= 50 mm, the magnetic surface of the magnet is covered with a plastic cap.

The magnet housing is zinc plated steel. The magnet is Neodymium, iron and boron NdFeB (ND type) . Cover cap is technopolymer plastic (Polyamide PA). Assemblies are temperature resistant to 175°F (80°C).

GN 453.1 / GN 453.2 Vibration/Shock Absorption Mounts

We're pleased to share with you today about our new GN 453.1 / GN 453.2 Vibration/Shock Absorption Mounts with Stainless Steel Components, Conical Type, in inch sizes.

These RoHS-compliant mounts, also known as shock absorbing mounts, vibration mounts, anti-vibration mounts, vibration bobbins or rubber bumpers, are frequently used as end-stop bumpers, e.g., for conveyor trolleys. They absorb most of the accumulated kinetic energy on impact. They act as dampers and prevent damaging shock and rebound, and are also used as sound dampers. They can also be used as leveling feet. The parabolic shape of these isolation mounts generates progressive resilience characteristics: Impact and shock effects are absorbed more gently.

Mount body is made of natural rubber (NR), vulcanized, 55 durometer (shore hardness +/-5°). The cover plate is stainless steel, molded in. Versions with either tapped inserts or threaded studs are offered; both are made of stainless steel, molded in.

GN 933.5 Stainless Steel Hexagon Head Screws with Brass Tip, Nylon Tip, or Spherical Pivot

Time to share with you another new product in our line: GN 933.5 Stainless Steel Hexagon Head Screws with Brass Tip, Nylon Tip, or Spherical Pivot, available in metric sizes.

These RoHS-compliant hexagon head screws are used when pressure dents or damage to the clamping surface must be avoided. The spherical pivot type has a diameter d4 that is smaller than the core diameter d1 of the thread. This makes it suitable for use with thrust pads GN 631 / GN 631.5 which must be ordered separately.

Hexagon head screw body is made of stainless steel, European standard 1.4301 (American Standard 304). Available with spherical pivot, or with tip made of either brass or plastic (Polyacetal POM).

GN 425.3 Stainless Steel Cabinet U-Handles

Today we're introducing another great new product in our line: GN 425.3 Stainless Steel Cabinet U-Handles, Blank, No Mounting Threads, in metric sizes.

These RoHS-compliant U-handles have no thread and are designed for applications that require the handle to be welded or for applications that require special threads, holes, etc. for mounting. Handle is made of European standard No. 1.4301 stainless steel (American standard 300 series), with a matte shot-blasted finish. Offered lengths range from 125 to 250 mm (4.92 to 9.84 inches). For certain minimum quantities other lengths according to customer requirements are available upon request.

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.
