Stainless steel adjusting screws afford flexibility to bearing blocks
by CM Staff
The stainless steel adjusting screw GN 827 from Winco, a specialist of standard parts, is intended for use with bearing blocks GN 828.
On production machines and mechanisms, it is often necessary to carry out repeated positioning operations as simply and reliably as possible. For precisely such secure and simple adjustments as well as for quick changing of mechanisms or tools, Winco now offers three new parts that complement each other: stainless steel adjusting screws with an adjustment scale plus matching bearing blocks and knurled nuts.
The stainless steel adjusting screw GN 827 from Winco, a specialist of standard parts, is intended for use with bearing blocks GN 828 and simplifies the attachment of parts to various processing and assembly mechanisms in machines, installations and jigs. This means that processes that require the repositioning and adjustment of devices can be carried out much more quickly. The mechanisms are moved into or out of position using an adjusting screw with rotating knob and hexagon socket fitted with a scale with 0.1 mm graduations.
Depending on the application, the stainless steel adjusting screws are available in a variety of thread diameters and lengths and can be optimally fastened to the production machine in combination with bearing blocks GN 828 from Winco. Once the optimal setting has been found, the adjusting screw can be locked in place with a stainless steel knurled nut GN 827.1 designed specifically for this purpose.
They are optionally available with a female thread matching the adjusting screw or a receiving groove that provides axial support for the adjusting screw. In addition to the scale on the rotating knob, the receiving groove has a laser-engraved reference line for adjusting the device. Set-up time and costs are reduced to a minimum, and production can continue with the previously set dimensions without any machine downtimes.
