Indexing plungers from Ganter for demanding development tasks

Indexing plungers are kinetic, multi-part standard parts for fast, reliable locking of moving parts. No tools are required to operate them. Detent pins, also called indexing plungers, guarantee high holding forces and secure fixation in combination with simple handling. This ensures a simple and at the same time secure process.

Mode of operation of indexing plungers

An indexing plunger creates a positive, detachable connection between one stationary and one moving component. It consists of a guide with an internal detent pin or bolt. When the pull button is pulled, the detent pin moves into the guide and makes the previously fixed component movable. After the component has reached its desired position, the user reinserts the pin into a hole in the stationary component to engage the lock.
The shear strength of the locking pin is decisive in determining the strength of the locking device. Depending on the type of the indexing plunger, the user can choose between various operating elements. Ganter supplies detent pins or indexing plungers made of steel or corrosion-resistant stainless steel, depending on the application.

Areas of application of the indexing plunger

The indexing plungers manufactured in accordance with the Ganter Norm (GN) are available in a variety of designs and with various features. The optimal detent pin is thus available for every application:
