Cam Index Plunger

Cam Index Plunger

When it comes to cam action indexing plungers, Elesa+Ganter offers something very special.
The new cam action indexing plungers from the GN 721 series with stop for left or right-handed operation available with optional locking function. Admittedly Elesa+Ganter already offers a very wide range of cam action indexing plungers. Yet frequent inquiries from customers for special designs prompted the company to add another standard part to its extensive standard product range.
More specifically the cam action indexing plungers from the GN 721 series differ in that they limit the range of action to 180 degrees and offer the option of left or right-hand lock. This allows multi-lock applications to be created with the same direction of movement, and therefore easier handling of valves or other components. In principle, the curve transforms the 180 degree rotation of the lock into an axial lift. If the spring-loaded lock does not unintentionally snap back from this end position other optional designs with reliable lock notch are available.
Also optional the lock nut pursuant to ISO 8675 which counters the cam action indexing plunger that can be mounted via the external thread in a specific assembly position and thus guarantees a defined construction related locking position. In addition to the normal steel design the cam action indexing plunger is also available in stainless steel. In both material versions the lock is available with and without polyamide valve.Other customer-specific special solutions are also possible for example, cam action indexing plungers with different curve slopes, smaller swivel ranges, special geometries, with a center position or specific locking ranges
