J.W. Winco, Inc., a supplier of standard industrial machine components, announced it now offers GN 414 Metric Size, Stainless Steel, Safety Indexing Plungers with pin in protruding position.
These RoHS compliant safety-indexing plungers are used when the inadvertent retraction of the plunger pin is to be prevented. The protruding plunger is first locked and may be unlocked for pulling only by exerting axial pressure on the red safety push-button. The safety lock engages in the front end position, i.e. automatically if the indexing pin protrudes, with the locking mechanism housed fully in the operating button and protected from malfunctions. The specified axial load bearing capacity refers to the locking force of the bolt against inadvertent operation, which must not be exceeded.
Temperature resistant to 80° C (176° F), the plunger body and pin are made of stainless steel, while the pin is chemically nickel-plated. The knob is technopolymer plastic in matte black-gray and is not removable. The safety push button is also made of technopolymer plastic and is a matte red color.
