7 Types of Industrial Handles

Industrial handles are frequently used in the workplace to operate machinery and equipment. An industrial handle can be grasped and turned to operate the connected machinery or equipment. The following are a few of the most popular kinds of industrial handles.

#1 Crank
The cranking motion of crank handles is what makes them distinctive. They are made up of two distinct bar-style handles. The end of the first, base handle is parallel to the second handle’s length. You will need to grasp and turn this second handle in order to operate a crank handle, which will result in a cranking motion.

#2 T-Handle
When looking for industrial handles, you can come across T-handles. T-handles live up to their namesake by resembling the letter T. While some of them are studded, others are tapped. Regardless, all T-handles have a T-shaped form. They have a very ergonomic design, which makes them a popular option for machines and equipment.

#3 Finger
Although the majority of industrial handles demand an open-hand grip, others do not. For example, you only need a few fingers to grab a finger handle. Finger handles are small, vertically oriented handles. They come in plastic, stainless steel, carbon steel, and zinc, among other materials. Finger handles are frequently suggested for confined places with little clearance.

#4 Speed Ball
Speed ball handles are also available. Speed ball handles are made up of one or more bars with attached balls. A ball may be affixed at the end of some of them, which are made of a single bar. Others have two bars with a ball attached to the ends of each.

#5 Fluted Grip
Industrial handles with a fluted pattern are known as fluted grips. They lack a surface that is easily gripped. Instead, the gripping surface of fluted grip handles is notched and fluted. This design makes it simpler for you to hold and turn fluted grip handles.

#6 Spinner Knob
Spinner knob handles are widely used in business. Handles with spinner knobs aren’t like other handles. The majority of industrial handles have a bar, but spinner knob handles have a knob that is shaped like a ball.

#7  Fold-Away
One of the most unusual styles of industrial handles is arguably fold-away. The handles of fold-a-away products can be collapsed. You can collapse them after you are done with them. Folding handles function similarly to other handles. They can be turned and gripped to engage a specific piece of machinery or equipment. However, only fold-away handles have a collapsible construction.
