JW Winco explains new development in clamping and locking
In the area of clamping and locking, Winco offers numerous toggle clamp versions for any conceivable application. To better meet specific customer needs, the toggle clamp product range now also includes a wide range of new developments and improvements as well as an expanded selection of accessories.
The standard parts specialist, Winco has optimized its portfolio of toggle clamps with regard to handling, quality and assembly, bringing innovative new products into the market. For example, product versions with integrated safety features are now available, effective immediately. The toggle clamp GN 820.3 is protected by a safety hook against unintended opening and the associated operating errors. The safety locking can be released with a single hand, if necessary. In the product version GN 810.3, both end positions of the clamp can be secured with the new locking function. This enables the use of longer clamping arms without them being closed accidentally.
As a new service, Winco delivers the matching spindle assembly with toggle clamp orders and also, if desired, the extended clamp arm, making procurement and assembly even easier for the customer. All Winco toggle clamps are available in steel or stainless steel, manufactured from sheet steel or forged parts and with galvanized or black-coated surface. Depending on the specific application, customers can choose between vertical clamps with vertically oriented clamping lever, horizontal clamps with horizontal lever as well as locking clamps and push-rod clamps. Thanks to the extensive selection and accessories as well as the numerous new developments, such as longer or wider clamp arms, Winco ensures that the ideal clamping product is always available for every customer requirement.
The base element of the toggle clamps has also been improved and supplied with slot-style hole patterns to enable universal mounting to any hole patterns typically found in industry applications. These are now compatible with both American inch dimensions as well as with the metric system. This makes it considerably easier to fasten the components, such as to a production machine.
