J.W. Winco Offers New Square Spring Latches
NEW BERLIN, WI - J.W. Winco, Inc., a leading supplier of standard industrial machine components, announced it offers series GN 722.2 Square Spring Latches with Flange for Surface Mounting.
These spring latches are designed for use in applications where less precise positioning/locking is required. The dimensional tolerances are therefore chosen for cost-effective production, while insuring that functional safety is guaranteed when exposed to dirty or dusty environments. They provide high dynamic and static strength and can be loaded from any direction with approved safety (safety factor 4).
This type of spring latch is used when the indexing pin needs to be retracted. The indexing pin retracts by turning the latch up the cam slope by 180°. A lock notch will hold the latch in both positions. The flange has two holes for mounting that can accommodate metric DIN 933/931 hex cap screws or DIN 912 socket cap screws. Equivalent inch size screws may potentially also be used for mounting the latch. The guide body is steel, precision cast, with either a zinc plated finish or black textured finish. The precision cast latch and the plunger pin are zinc plated, blue passivated steel. The spring latches are available in versions with the latch position either right-angled or parallel to the mounting holes, and are RoHS compliant.
