J.W. Winco, Inc. announced it now offers GN 927 Clamping Levers with Eccentrical Cam in inch sizes as well as metric.
These clamping levers are used for rapid clamping and releasing, and come in both tapped and stud types. In contrast to a clamping operation utilizing threads, these levers permit torque-free clamping. The lever has been designed to insure that its movement cannot exceed the maximum clamping position, and there are no loose components since all are assembled and mounted in their correct order. The levers are RoHS compliant, with zinc die cast handles and a matte black plastic coated, abrasion-proof epoxy resin finish. Components are zinc plated, blue passivated steel.
These levers are available with two types of technopolymer contact plates: a fixed version, or an adjustable contact plate, with which the distance between the eccentrical cam and the contact surface is adjustable by means of a fine threaded knurled nut. The second option permits the maximum clamping force to be set by a simple adjustment. With these clamping levers, thrust forces of up to 8 kN can be obtained.
