SPRING PLUNGERS

SPRING PLUNGERS GIVE SURE AND POSITIVE CONTROLLED SPRING TENSION.
APPLICATIONS: Nylon Nose Spring Plungers are generally used with soft materials such as Aluminum, Brass, etc. They are also used for positioning parts in fixtures - Locating Pins - Detents - Ejecting Parts - End product uses.
Spring Plungers are available with two spring pressures: Black Nose with standard pressure and Silver Nose with light pressure. The nylon nose has high tensile strength, excellent wear resistance, and is reinforced for minimum deformation. A black oxide finish resists rusting. Hardened steel plungers assure long life and a black oxide finish resists rusting. The optional self-locking "NYLOK"(r) insert provides a positive, vibration proof lock. Compression of the nylon pellet creates a spring-like wedging action that locks the mated threads together. The "NYLOK"(r) feature eliminates the need for set screws or more expensive methods of locking spring plungers.
Note: TO provide full locking torque and to prevent damage to the insert when using "NYLOK"(r) type spring plungers, it is important that the tapped installation holes be countersunk 90o by 1/32" larger than the major thread diameter.
Special Spring Plungers can be made to your specifications. Prices are quoted upon request.

BALL PLUNGERS

BALL PLUNGERS are used for many locating applications in dies, jigs, fixtures and other tooling.
They are also used in indexing automatic feed devices, for gear shifters, as locators in progressive dies, in torque-limiting clutches, for positioning levers, in gauges... anywhere you need controlled end pressure. They are also used with detents where predetermined positioning is required. Balls are made of hardened chrome steel for long life. Ball plungers are furnished in three end pressures and are color-coded for easy identification.
BLACK - for standard end pressure;
SILVER - for light end pressure;
GOLD - for heavy end pressure.
Stainless steel ball plungers are used where maximum protection is required against rust and corrosion.
Special Ball Plungers made to your specifications will be priced
upon request.

SPRING AND BALL PLUNGER WRENCHES

Plunger Wrench makes it easy to install or remove spring plunger
or ball plunger. They also prevent possible spring damage that can result when a screwdriver is used on the plunger end.

BALL PLUNGER DETENT

Detent provides perfect mating with ball plunger or other similar applications.
Hardened and ground for long wear.

THREE PIECE SPRING PLUNGERS, BLINDE HOLE MOUNTING

Blind Hole Mounting is especially useful where space is limited. Also excellent when used as strippers, or locators. Plunger pins are hardened for long wear.
Black Oxide Finish.

THREE PIECE SPRING PLUNGERS, THROUGH HOLE MOUNTING

Through Hole Mounting inserted from the top of a die. Easily replaced. The "NYLOK"TM set screw furnished with this type, prevents vibration from moving the screw after assembly.
Black Oxide Finish.

METRIC HAND RETRACTABLE PLUNGERS

End pressures are given in kilograms. Full pressures are the force
kilograms needed to move the nose in the distances shown in " C "  column.

HAND RETRACTABLE PLUNGERS, PULL RING 
  •  SHORT - NON-LOCKING
  • STANDARD LENGTH - LOCKABLE

Used in machining applications as positioners, loading pins, indexing devices. Designed to function where space is limited. Easy to grasp ring allows you to hold the plunger back while changing work piece.
End pressures are given in pounds. Full pressures are the force pounds needed to move the nose the distances shown in "C" column.
Made Of Zinc Plated Steel.
Supplied With Nylon Patch Locking Element.

 

 

HAND RETRACTABLE PLUNGERS, LOCKABLE
  • STANDARD PRESSURE
  • LIGHT PRESSURE

Improved design allows plunger pin to be locked in fully retracted position. End pressures are given in pounds. Full pressures are the force pounds needed to move the nose the distances shown in "C" column.
Supplied With Nylon Patch Locking Element.

 

HAND RETRACTABLE PLUNGERS
  • LONG REACH - ST'D. LENGTH - LOCKABLE
  • LONG REACH, SHORT PLUNGER-LOCKABLE

Plunger can be withdrawn completely into the body and locked in a fully retracted position.
To engage the plunger simply turn the handle to line up with slot in body.
