J.W. Winco Inc. offers GN 927 clamping levers with eccentrical cam in tapped-type and threaded-stud versions.
The Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS)-compliant clamping levers are used for rapid clamping and releasing operations. They permit torque-free clamping and have been designed to keep movement from exceeding the maximum clamping position. Without loose components, thrust forces ranging to 1.8 lbs (8 N) can be obtained.
The levers are zinc-die-cast and plastic-coated, with an abrasion-proof epoxy resin finish. Components are steel and zinc-plated with a blue passivated finish.
A version with an adjustable bearing plate enables adjustments to the distance between the eccentrical cam and the contact surface by means of a fine-threaded knurled nut. This permits the maximum clamping force to be set more easily, the company says. In addition, this permits the selection of a preferred lever position in relation to the clamping lever pin.
The adjustable-bearing-plate version is black technopolymer-plated and glass fiber-reinforced. The setting nut is steel and zinc-plated in a blue passivated finish. The bearing plate on the version that is fixed is technopolymer and glass fiber-reinforced.
