J.W. Winco, Inc. announced it offers series GN 587 Weldable Safety Swivel Load Rings in metric sizes.
GN 587 load rings are designed for quick mounting and are RoHS compliant. They provide high dynamic and static strength and can be loaded from any direction with approved safety (safety factor 4). The load ring is forged steel, European Standard No. 1.6541, high-tensile tempered, with bright pink powder coated finish. The weld-on block is steel S355 J2 + N (ST52-3N), forged, natural finish. The retaining spring is stainless steel tape.
Load ring and weldable block are 100% electro magnetic tensile tested to EN 1677. Stainless steel tape holds the ring in any position and dampens any noise caused by vibrations. All parts are permanently connected. The two support lugs improve the bearing load of the hooks and enhance the support effect of the ring, especially if the ring is side loaded or the lifting point is welded on an uneven work piece. GN 587 load rings comply with Mechanical Engineering Directive 98 / 37 / CE and are BG tested.
