5905, 5910, 5915 Series Vertical Hold Down Clamps
Destaco 5905, 5910 & 5915 Series vertical hold down clamps or vertical hold down toggle locking clamps hold workpieces in place using a lever handle that engages & releases the clamping head while pushed to the upright position. These vertical clamps are used in the aerospace, automotive and food & packaging industries for welding, grinding, metal fabrication and automotive part assembling. Destaco 5905, 5910 & 5915 Series vertical hold down clamps are designed to apply downward clamping force by increasing the applied load via toggle mechanisms. They comprise accurately machined components having hardened and ground pivot pins and bushings. These clamps enable the user to undertake an action without being worried by the frequent movement of a piece of wood. The unique pivot and lever system ensures maximum function and excellent performance. They have high exerting force and flexible adjustability that are useful when working with materials of varying thicknesses. These clamps offer a stationary alternative to removable C-clamps or spring clamps when securing material to a work surface. These vertical hold down clamps offer a linkage system that can apply powerful clamping force with little effort to lock or even unlock. Destaco toggle clamps feature a heavy-duty forged clamping arm and a vertical handle in damped position to provide a maximum holding capacity of 2750 lb. These vertical hold-down clamps have a low pivot point that results in near perpendicular clamping force. They are available in flanged and solid base variants, with threaded holes for secure installation. They come equipped with a removable handle stop that can be repositioned to limit the opening angle up to 90 degrees.
Destaco 5905, 5910 & 5915 Series vertical hold down clamps are used in the food & packaging, automation, aerospace and automotive industries for applications like machining, welding, grinding and metal fabrication.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does a vertical hold down toggle clamp work?
The toggle clamp actuates against the workpiece and compresses or stretches the equipped linkages to keep the workpiece in a stationary position.
How much pressure is a toggle clamp capable of?
Destaco hold down toggle clamps apply downward clamping force by increasing the applied load via toggle mechanisms. You can see the clamping force on the packaging itself, which is specifically measured in Newton. Use the information with the size of the toggle clamp to work out the degree of pressure that the tool will have to exert on a piece of wood. The larger the wood, the greater the pressure required. So, we would suggest, whether a clamp is not strong or large to apply enough pressure, you should use a variety of tools. This gives a boost to the pressure.
What does hold-down action mean?
Destaco hold-down action clamps apply force in downward direction. It is perpendicular to the tools that are mounting the surface. They come in vertical and horizontal styles.
How do Destaco manual clamps work with, and benefit, fixture applications?
Destaco vertical hold down clamps securely hold a part into a fixture in a safe and ergonomic way. These clamps are quick acting to improve productivity and cycle times.
