The range of leveling feet available in the JW Winco portfolio is extensive. And it continues to grow because the requirements only appear simple until you take a deeper look. Chances are few pay attention to the leveling feet for an application at the design stage. Yet hardly any construction can be complete without leveling feet that support the entire load of everything above them.
So, what must leveling feet offer to stand up to the harsh conditions of industrial applications? Above all, stability and secure fastening that can hold any loads. Ideally, adjustability, and a long service life are also features.
JW Winco’s GN 21 is one example of a reliable product, which consists entirely of stainless steel and a plate that’s machined from solid material to provide a refined surface. The version with mounting holes in the plate bears the designation of series GN 23.
With WN 9000 / WN 9000.1 leveling feet, the spindle has a ball-end that moves freely in the leveling mount base, allowing differences in incline between the ground and the machine. The base is made of a glass-filled nylon plastic and is available with or without a an elastomer rubber non-skid pad. Two holes for mounting the leveling mount base are standard in this version. The spindles are made of either steel or stainless steel.
Also new from JW Winco are the “duckfoot” types GN 42 and GN 43. Their strange name comes from the half round, half rectangular shape. These leveling feet are suitable for universal use and have tolerance friendly slots, while ribs reinforce the plate under heavy loads. Depending on the standard, either galvanized steel or 304 stainless steel is used. A vulcanized layer on the underside of the plate is also available as an option.
Leveling feetGN 44 and GN 45 are designed for highly corrosive environment applications, which is why they are made of 316L stainless steel (1.4404). These have either a tear-drop shaped base with mounting hole or they use a proven round plate shape — both variations are also optionally available with a rubber underlay. With these additions, JW Winco has once again expanded its leveling mount selection with special elements. The range of options hardly leaves any wish unfulfilled.
Alongside a variety of plate shapes, the threaded spindles are available with or without locknuts, there are variations with internal threads, other options that include adjustment sleeves for covering the thread, and a variety of drive types, all this in various material qualities.
