JW Winco is expanding its mounting clamps selection with new elements that will ensure simpler, more optimal and more flexible clamping of system-specific components.
The mounting clamps selection of JW Winco has always been designed with universal use in mind, and the individual elements feature correspondingly versatile designs. The robust system enables the fast, reliable and modifiable mounting of additional components in plants and machines. The classic applications for these parts include, for example, the stable attachment of sensors while still permitting easy adjustment of their position and coverage area.
As with all standard parts in the JW Winco portfolio, the mounting clamps selection is constantly being optimized and expanded to make them more efficient, simpler to use and easier to integrate. As many users have utilized the twistable two-way mounting clamps GN 475 to arrange attachment rods in parallel, JW Winco was inspired by this application to create the mounting clamps GN 474.1 with two parallel clamping holes.
The new retaining rods GN 480.3 and GN 480.5 of stainless steel also help make the system easier to use as their offset or angled shape eliminates the need to com- bine multiple straight elements. Thanks to its barbed fitting, the hose adapter GN 480.7 permits the direct connection of hoses on one side and thread-based mounting of an outlet nozzle on the other side. As a result, lubricants, coolant or compressed air are transported more effectively to the parts of a system where they are needed.
Also new in the mounting clamps range: T-clamp, base plate and simple swivel mounting clamps can be assembled into a freely configurable articulated mounting clamps using the clamping kit GN 511.1. The clamping kit centers and connects the two mounting clamps with a screw or adjustable hand lever such that they are still free
to swivel. But even used individually, the swivel mounting clamps offer a wide range of fastening and mounting options. Because JW Winco always has the user in mind, all mounting clamps of a given nominal size can be mounted using the same tool; even the fastening and clamping holes have identical dimensions. This allows changes to be made without the need to drill new holes. JW Winco goes another step further with the retaining magnet GN 51.6, which makes holes entirely obsolete. An integrated thread establishes the connection with various mounting clamps – this makes the rubber-coated magnet ideal for temporary installations on sensitive surfaces.
Related Glossary Terms
Cone-shaped pins that support a workpiece by one or two ends during machining. The centers fit into holes drilled in the workpiece ends. Centers that turn with the workpiece are called “live” centers; those that do not are called “dead” centers.
Fluid that reduces temperature buildup at the tool/workpiece interface during machining. Normally takes the form of a liquid such as soluble or chemical mixtures (semisynthetic, synthetic) but can be pressurized air or other gas. Because of water’s ability to absorb great quantities of heat, it is widely used as a coolant and vehicle for various cutting compounds, with the water-to-compound ratio varying with the machining task. See cutting fluid; semisynthetic cutting fluid; soluble-oil cutting fluid; synthetic cutting fluid.
Strip or block of precision-ground stock used to elevate a workpiece, while keeping it parallel to the worktable, to prevent cutter/table contact.
