500 Series Weldable Vertical Hold Down Clamps
Destaco 500 Series weldable vertical hold down clamps are designed to apply downward clamping force by increasing the applied load via toggle mechanisms. These weldable vertical toggle clamps offer the flexibility to position the base, clamp arm & handle and weld them in any desired position to suit different applications. They comprise accurately machined components having hardened and ground pivot pins and bushes. These clamps offer a stationary alternative to removable C clamps or spring clamps when securing material to a work surface. These clamps hold workpieces in place using a lever handle that is pushed to the upright position when the clamp is engaged. They are equipped with an ergonomically designed handle to minimise strain and pain while working. The lever handle engages & release the clamping head, which holds a workpiece onto a worktable. Destaco toggle clamps are used in welding, assembling and heavy duty production clamping applications in various commercial industries. These hold down toggle clamps feature high clamping ability that reduces necessary fixtures for a particular application. They can adapt to workpieces of different heights. Destaco vertical hold down toggle clamps are virtually maintenance free and they only require a few drops of lubricating oil to keep them in excellent condition. These clamps enable the user to undertake an action without being worried by the frequent movement of a workpiece. The unique pivot and unique lever system ensures maximum function and excellent performance. They have high exerting force and flexible adjustability that are useful when working with various material thicknesses. They feature a fixed design to secure & loosen workpieces without moving the clamp itself. These vertical hold-down clamps are available in a locking spring clip design variant.
Destaco 500 Series variable stroke straight line action clamps offer a wide combination of features, making them adaptable to applications such as assembly, welding & heavy duty production in the aerospace, automotive and food & packaging industries.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does a hold down toggle clamp work?
Vertical handle toggle clamps actuate against the workpiece and compress or stretch the equipped linkages to keep the workpiece in a stationary position.
What does holding capacity mean in terms of clamps?
The holding capacity or the holding force depicts the clamp's capability to hold down the equipment or sheet metal on the assembly line or during any other manufacturing process.
What is the benefit of using a toggle clamp over other types of clamp?
The main advantage of a toggle clamp is that it is quick-acting. These clamps can generate high holding force from the limited amount of force you put into the clamp. Depending on what you have been employing in the past, that efficiency will give a cost-benefit by accelerating production and increasing production outputs when you are able to increase the speed with which you are loading and unloading components.
