The two available slide types and the wedge-shaped or cylindrical, rounded thrust pad not only hold parts with side pressure but also exert an additional downward force. All thrust pads can be rotated around their long axis in 90-degree steps to optimally adjust to the part geometry – this is as simple as loosening the central slide screw. The thrust pads are also available in a POM plastic version as well as in stainless steel with smooth or textured pressure pad for better grip. The latter type is produced by injection molding of metal and is therefore subject to only minimal measurement tolerances.

The great value Winco places on simple and universal handling is on display in the method of fastening implemented for the black zinc die cast housing. Two normal bores are supplemented by slots that allow the housing to be shifted by a generous 0.18 in. to 0.53 in.
