JW Winco offers Cabinet "U" Handles Aluminum, with Tapped Holes or Through Holes

 JW Winco, Inc., A Ganter Company, a supplier of standard industrial machine components, offers Series GN 328 and GN 428 Cabinet "U" Handles Aluminum, with Tapped Holes or Through Holes.

Recognized for their stability, and ergonomic grip, these handles are made from solid aluminum and reflect the latest developments in industrial design. They have been recently awarded the iF DESIGN AWARD and the Red Dot Design Award.

“Design is one of the keys to success in mechanical engineering, as good design increases demand and efficiency, with “U” handles playing an important role in this process,” said John M. Winkler, CEO, Office of the President at JW Winco. “For this reason, Winco offers a new generation of elegant and customizable machine handles.”

Solid drawn aluminum profiles are used for the new GN 428 machine handles, with two standard cross sections available in six lengths with anodized or powder-coated surfaces. Customers can choose the mounting connections to be on the front or back, with a threaded blind hole or standard through hole. Dimensions, bending geometry, coating types and coating colors are able to be customized.

These features are also incorporated into the GN 328 "Uhandles. Though smaller, these handles are similar in shape to the machine handles and made from die-cast aluminum. They are available in two sizes with a powder coated or polished surface. “Every effort was made to optimize the ergonomics of these new handles,” Winkler said. “The internal recesses and rounded edges allow for easy and robust handling.”

JW Winco is a manufacturer/distributor of inch and metric standard parts. JW Winco offers an extensive selection of plastic, steel and stainless steel adjustable levers, cabinet U-handles, hinges and locking mechanisms, revolving and retractable handles, hand wheels, hand cranks, tube connection and conveyor components, construction tubing, shock absorption mounts, leveling mounts, hand knobs, spring, ball and indexing plungers, jig, fixture and fastening components, retaining magnet assemblies, toggle clamps, casters and wheels, universal joints, oil sight glasses, and metric tools for the industrial and commercial equipment industries.
