APPROVED VENDOR Straight Line Action Clamps

Filter


Straight line action clamps are ideal for assembling, welding, tensioning & fixture checking applications, where there is a need to drill, cut or hold workpieces. These tools hold and clamp workpieces tightly, without twisting or flexing the material, and are used in the automotive, aerospace a...nd food packaging & processing industries. They can handle loads up to 16000 lb and feature steel or stainless steel for structural rigidity and resisting corrosion on exposed surfaces.Read more

Straight Line Action Clamps

Straight line clamps are used for precise clamping in the aerospace, automotive and food processing & packaging industries. They use a straight line or pull / push toggle clamping action by applying clamping force sideways rather than from the top, for securing workpieces in limited space. These clamps are suitablefor applications like metalworking, woodworking, fixturing, plastic injection molding, welding, testing, CNC machining, automotive part assembling and staking / light pressworking of industrial equipment.
These straight line toggle clamps from Destaco are made of steel / stainless steel for structural rigidity and resisting corrosion on exposed surfaces. Destaco straight line action clamps feature a threaded plunger that accommodates hex head / neoprene spindle assembly for making the clamp's plunger length easily adjustable. Most clamps, including Destaco 603 & 608 Series straight line action clamps, feature round plungers having a threaded body for quick & secure fastening. Destaco straight line clamps are capable of holding loads ranging from 100 to 16000 lb.
Selected models, such as Destaco 630-MR clamps, come with the Toggle Lock Plus feature to provide over-centre locking and prevention against accidental opening of the clamps. These straight line action clamps are integrated with precisely machined components having hardened & ground pivot pins and bushings for prolonged service life. The clamps are used with bolt retainers, spindle assemblies and flanged washers, as well as have flanged or straight mounting bases with threaded holes for quick & secure surface (flanged base) or blade (straight base) mounting.
We also offer Destaco FL Series variable stroke straight line action clamps that use a plunger to generate positive linear force, as well as hold & position workpieces for machining. These plunger clamps are equipped with a flanged mounting base for secure & easy installation, and are ideal for applications where workpiece tolerances & thicknesses vary. They are recommended for clamping between ribs & hollow spaces which are difficult to reach. They utilise a plunger and a hand lever / hand wheel that can be operated either separately or simultaneously. When clamping the unit against a workpiece, the clamping stroke can be reduced by the force locking connection between the plunger and the workpiece. These straight line action clamps can then be unlocked by turning the hand lever or wheel counter-clockwise. To change the position of the handle while in the clamped or unclamped position, the user has to pull the hand lever off its spline and set it in the desired position. Destaco FL Series variable stroke straight line clamps feature balanced construction to offer rigid holding & long life, and provide clamping force proportional to the operation force for secure clamping.

Working Mechanism

Destaco straight line action clamps or straight line toggle clamps use a straight line or pull / push toggle clamping action, respectively. They apply clamping force sideways rather than from the top, for securing workpieces in confined spaces. They come with a threaded plunger that accommodates a swivel foot hex head / neoprene spindle assembly for making the clamp's plunger length easily adjustable. The attached round plungers have a threaded body for quick and secure fastening.

Standards and Approvals

Destaco straight line action clamps are manufactured in compliance with industry standards like ISO 9001:2015 & ISO 14001:2015 for environmental health, utmost user safety and superior performance of the clamps.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Toggle Lock Plus mechanism?

Selected Destaco straight line action clamps feature the Toggle Lock Plus mechanism to prevent accidental opening of clamps.

How are straight line action clamps installed?

Destaco straight line action clamps come with through holes on the flanged / straight base that allow quick and secure surface or blade mounting onto flat surfaces / workpieces using simple screwing. They can be removed and installed at a different location by simply unscrewing using a screwdriver.

How are toggle clamps measured?

Toggle clamps are available in multiple variants having different holding capacities. The capacity of a particular toggle clamp can be measured by calculating the distance between the clamping plate (at its highest position) & the workbench.

Does Destaco supply any water resistant clamp sensors?

Yes, Destaco also supplies inductive sensors designed in accordance with IP65 standards to ensure protection from powerful hydraulic jets, dust & heavy rain.

What does clamping force mean?

Clamping force is the amount of force actually applied to the workpiece by closing & locking the clamp. It is normally less than the stated holding capacity. The actual clamping force depends on various factors, including cylinder bore, cylinder area, spindle position (clamping arm length) and available air pressure. In most cases, the clamping force is approximately 2 to 3 times the force exerted by a pneumatic cylinder.

What is the significance of the red colour of the handle of Destaco clamps?

There is no such significance of the colour of the clamp's handle, as it only represents a recognisable area. This helps operators in finding the handle quickly & easily.

What does a clamp's holding capacity signify?

The clamp's holding capacity or holding force represents the capability to hold down mechanical equipment or sheet metal while assembling automotive parts or during manufacturing processes.

Which grease is ideal for Destaco clamps for their rebuilding?

A coupling grease like Mobil XTC should be used when dealing with Destaco mechanical clamps, while the Magnalube G grease is great for use with pneumatic cylinder seals.

How does a straight line action clamp work?

A straight line clamp incorporates a sliding plunger to provide straight line clamping action. The plunger can be locked in either pulling or pushing direction for holding workpieces.
