J.W. Winco, Inc. Latch Clamps are Compact and Sturdy

NEW BERLIN, WI – J.W. Winco, Inc., a leading supplier of standard industrial machine components, announced it now offers GN 854 Latch Clamps with Trigger Function, in metric sizes.

The outstanding feature of these RoHS-compliant latch clamps is their highly robust, sturdy, and compact design, permitting their use under demanding conditions, e.g. exposure to high temperatures, dust, spray mist, etc. The specially designed catch allows the forced loosening of the clamp by the clamping arm moving the pulling latch forward, e.g. for separating mold halves.

Clamping bearing/clamping arm are made of forged, weldable, blank steel. Pulling latch/bearing pins are steel, St 37, blank, and catch is sheet metal steel, blank. The clamps are available with bore for gear lever handle or with clamping arm. The former version is operated with a gear lever handle that is plugged into the latch and pulled off after operation. This saves space and has the added advantage that the gear lever handle is not exposed to adverse ambient conditions, e.g. becoming too hot to operate.

The catch can also be mounted using screws or bolts. If required, clamps and catches are also available as separate parts; for replacement, the bearing bolt is easily dismantled.
