Handwheels, crank handles, position indicators

Handwheels are mounted onto shafts and spindles and are used to position and adjust machine components. Crank handles are recommended for longer travels. Position indicators allow the travel distance to be measured. Handwheels are used on metrology machines, test equipment, in boat building, armament fabrication and in machine and plant construction.


Handwheels are mostly used in machine and plant construction. Using handwheels as operating parts and standard elements in the mechanical sector is almost self-evident. They ensure that manual rotary movements are quickly and efficiently transferred on machines. Handwheels are often used as the manual drive element to convert a rotary movement into a lateral movement. Handwheels can also be found on armatures, machine tools or motors where they can be used to open or close valves.
KIPP handwheels use a key/keyway connection to fit them to a shaft enabling machine adjustments with minimum backlash. Key/keyway connections guarantee optimum torque transmission.
Other applications for handwheels:
  • Measuring equipment 
  • Test aggregates 
  • Ship building
  • Armaments
  • Equipment construction 
  • Hand crafts
KIPP has a wide range of handwheels. The customer can select from various materials, diameters and versions. At KIPP the handwheels are divided into three main types:
  • 2-Spoke handwheels 
  • DIN 950 handwheels 
  • Disc handwheels
2-Spoke handwheels are available as plastic versions and aluminium versions. Aluminium handwheels are especially robust and the material used means that weight and mass can be saved making operation much lighter. KIPP offers 2-Spoke handwheels with revolving grips, fold-down grips or without grips.
Handwheel for manually turning a shaft
DIN 950 handwheels have three spokes. The DIN 950 handwheel product range includes grey cast iron and aluminium versions. Cast iron handwheels are highly robust and durable. DIN 950 Handwheels are available with revolving or fixed grips.

Disc handwheels are available in three different materials. As an alternative to the aluminium version, KIPP also offers a thermoset version. The thermoset handwheels have either a pilot hole (Form D) or have a reamed hole (Form E). On request, other sizes of reamed hole hole can also be bored.

The comprehensive product range is supplemented by other thermoplastic handwheels and a special handwheel with safety grip. Special types can also be produced to meet customer specifications.
