Established in 1894, our medium-sized, family-owned business has focussed on designing and manufacturing standardized components for industrial machines for more than 100 years. Today we are one of the biggest suppliers of standard machine elements for clamping, operating, and fixture elements, worldwide.
Pins with axial lock GN 214.2 are used for quick fixing, connecting and locking of various jig and fixture systems. A typical application is location pins which have to be often removed and re-placed again.
The two locking pawls can be retracted by pressing the button and on releasing it the pawls will be locked again.
The rectangular shape of the locking pawls in stainless steel cretaes a linear contact area with axial lock of the pin.
The version with swivelling lifting ring is ideal for the use in confined spaces.
The load values given in the above table at shear stress are theoretically obtained and indicative only. They are non-binding recommended values and rule our any liability. They constitute no general warranty of quality and condition. The user must determine from case to case whether a product is suitable for the intended use.
The outstanding feature of GN 854 latch clamps is their highly robust, sturdy and compact design, allowing their use under demanding conditions, e.g. exposure to high temperatures, dust, spray mist, etc.
The specially designed latch bracket allows the forced loosening of the clamping by the clamping arm moving the pulling latch forward, e.g. for separating mould halves.
Latch clamps with bore (coding 1) are operated with a gear lever handle which 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. turning too hot to operate. The gear lever handle is not included in the delivery.
The latch bracket can also be attached using screws or bolts.
If required, clamping elements and pulling latches are also available as separate parts; for replacement, the bearing bolt is easily dismantled.
Machine sliding doors or plant components of special machinery – these elements, often real heavy-weights, can hardly be moved without linear guide systems. Ganter has not one, but several new models in its standard range.
At the start of the leading technology trade fairs for mechanical engineering and automation engineering, standard element specialist Ganter presents its latest extension to its product range: linear motion bearings and roller guide systems, elements which are virtually indispensible in applications involving mechanical engineering and handling technology.
Linear motion bearings are structured similar to radial ball bearings. They have an outer rail in which a runner moves in linear direction, kept in the proper distance and position with roller bearings and a cage. Different models are available for different applications in which the traversal distances of the runners are either inside, partly outside or fully outside the rails. In the fully retractable “telescope” linear motion bearings, two linear motion bearings are linked directly or via intermediate profiles.
Roller guide systems are made up of one outer rail with rollers or roller carriages moving inside these rails. There is a choice of 3 roller carriages which differ in terms of attachment, material and sealing and which are equipped with 3 rollers in the standard design. The rails are available either as floating bearing rails or as fixed bearing rails and in two types of mounting holes. High traversal speeds and excellent running smoothness are the outstanding features of these roller guide systems made by Ganter.
The use of high-quality antifriction bearing and heat-treatment steel and the anticorrosion zinc plating guarantee low wear and tear and a long service life.
Both, the linear motion bearings and the roller guide systems are available in 3 or 4 nominal sizes, in standard lengths, ex warehouse and – on request – also in customised lengths.
Spirit levels are small and inconspicuous - but important little helpers. When a machine, a tripod or an assembly point is to be aligned with precision, the grand entrance of these standard elements has come. This is why Ganter has included these elements in its range of products.
If precision is called for, the accurate horizontal alignment and orientation of production plants, measuring instruments, adjustment units or assembly elements is crucially important. Integrated spirit levels allow objects “to be levelled out” with ease, and the exact position can be checked later at any time and at a glance. The way spirit levels work is simple: a hollow body accommodates a fluid and a gas bubble, with the bubble always floating by its buoyancy to the highest point. In screw-on levels this effect is accomplished with a slight curvature of the cylindrical body. If the gas bubble is located between the two linear markings, the object is aligned horizontally in one direction. The two-dimensional alignment therefore needs two screw-on levels turned by 90 degrees – or a bull’s eye level. A bull’s eye level shows the position of the object in two directions at the same time: once the gas bubble is situated in the middle of the centric circular marking, the horizontal position is reached. Ganter has now included these universal and indispensable adjustment aids into its standard product range – as screw-in levels with one, two or three sight glasses, and as bull’s eye levels in various different designs. For instance as top-mounted threaded assembly, countersunk with threaded flange, for insertion into bore holes, for top-attachment with or without threaded, or as simple spirit level elements. And there are also the adjustable bull’s eye levels with a central alignment ball at their base and three threads. The level is adjusted by the target-specific tightening of the three mounting screws. All bull’s eye levels are made in black or natural colour aluminium, while the screw-on levels are manufactured of powdered brass.
