Ganter pins and indexing elements for various assembly
Ganter pins are connecting elements manufactured according to the Ganter Norm (GN) for manually interlocking two or more parts. When engaged, they restrict the movement of the components or fix them completely. Ganter pins can be released again with one hand. They are therefore ideal for frequent use. This makes them perfect for temporarily adjusting, assembling or locking components.
Types of Ganter pins
Ganter offers a comprehensive range of pins. With this extensive range, the right standard part for interlocking is always available for practically every type of application.
An indexing plunger is a normed detent device. Standard parts and machine elements can be fixed in a certain position using indexing plungers. They create a secure connection with limited play. The conventional indexing plunger is usually actuated with a pull button.
Cam action indexing plungers
Cam action indexing plungers are a modified variant of the indexing plungers. The lock can be released by turning the bolt.
Clamping indexing plungers
Clamping indexing plungers are used for positioning, securing and clamping adjusting elements at the same time. Where defined bores are available for engaging the integrated pin, the positive connection typical of a pin is used. At any other position, the clamping indexing plunger utilizes friction locking.
Locking pins are used for quick fixing, connecting and locking of various parts and workpieces. Pressing the spring-loaded push button unlocks both balls, and releasing it locks the balls again.
Spring thrust pads are generally used as pressure pins in applications. A spring thrust pad is used when a workpiece has to be quickly fixed, indexed or positioned in a toolmaking or mechanical engineering application. The locking function is simple, useful and functional. Ganter's range is very wide to cover many applications.
