Extended Range of Ball Plungers from JW Winco are Electrically Insulated

Press Release Summary:

JW Winco’s new GN 615.5, GN 615.8, and GN 615.9 ball plungers can be used for securing, pressure, and stand-off functions. The 615.5, which is in A4 stainless steel with a ceramic ball, is suitable for corrosive environments, and the ceramic is antimagnetic and low wearing. The 615.8, which is in stainless steel or steel with friction bearing and slot, and the 615.9, which is in stainless steel or steel with friction bearing and internal hexagon, reduce wear on mating parts. This is accomplished by a ball mounted in a friction bearing shell to be freely movable, to enable rolling and optimize securing characteristics.
