Lowell's ratcheting crank handles are less likely to slip, stick or freeze
Lowell Corporation’s ratcheting crank handles offer an alternative to handwheels and other devices for machine control in both OEM and retrofit applications. Lowell’s ratcheting crank handles are less likely to slip, stick or freeze.
Although they may be purchased as replacements for equipment on existing machines, Lowell’s crank handles can also be incorporated into the design of new machinery. Standard models are available with either fixed or rotating metal handles, or lower-cost rotating plastic handles. Arm lengths range from 7 inches to 12 inches. In addition, the company offers custom designs for specific applications.
Lowell crank handles can be paired with a variety of openings, including bore and keyway, square or hex. Lowell can also create custom openings to customer specifications.
The handles utilize stamped steel handle plates, solid steel gears and powder-coated, corrosion-resistant epoxy paint. Gears are pre-assembled at the factory and are not replaceable. There is also a head-mounted reversing control for easy fingertip operation.
