Ganter Adds New Quick-Connect Coupling to Its Portfolio
To reduce the time involved in setting up equipment and production lines, Ganter has incorporated a new coupling in its product portfolio. The GN 1050 quick-release coupling is designed to quickly and securely connect components to a machine or device with a single click.
The quick release fastener consists of two elements: the coupling GN 1050 and the tailored threaded stud GN 1050.1. A safety locking button protects the coupling from being accidentally opened. When pressing the button, the sleeve can be moved axially to unlock a stud inserted into the notch on the inside. At the same time, a red ring becomes visible on the outside to indicate the unlocked state.
Two different designs of the quick release coupling are available: Version F has a fixed bearing for precisely positioned attachment. Version L with a loose bearing permitting a certain degree of tolerance between the fastening points. The quick release coupling comes standard in black anodized aluminum and possesses a locking mechanism made of zinc plated steel. The materials and surface finishes are designed to protect against corrosion and wear and sustain axial connection loads up to 35 kN.
