603, 608 Series Straight Line Action Clamps
Destaco 603 & 608 Series straight line action clamps are used for precise clamping in the aerospace, automotive and food & packaging industries. They apply clamping force sideways rather than from the top for securing workpieces in limited space, and are great for 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 clamps feature a compact design to reduce space requirement for clamp installation & operation, thereby increasing ease of use in confined spaces for both single part & mass production. Destaco 603, 608 Series straight line action clamps are capable of being locked in both retracted & extended positions and have flanged bases with threaded holes for quick & secure installation. These straight line action clamps come with a threaded plunger that accommodates a hex head spindle assembly for making the clamp's plunger length easily adjustable. Destaco 603, 608 Series straight line action clamps are made of steel for structural rigidity and resisting corrosion on exposed surfaces, and are equipped with attached round plungers having a threaded body for quick & secure fastening. These units are integrated with a push / pull handle for moving the plunger in & out along its axis smoothly and are capable of holding loads ranging from 600 to 850 lb. Selected models come with the Toggle Lock Plus feature to provide over centre locking and prevention against accidental opening of the clamp.
Destaco 603 & 608 Series straight line action clamps are ideal for CNC machining, automotive part assembling and fixture checking in the aerospace, automotive and food & packaging industries.
Frequently Asked Questions
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.
What is Toggle Lock Plus mechanism?
Destaco 603 & 608 Series straight line action clamps feature Toggle Lock Plus mechanism to prevent accidental opening of clamps.
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.
What does the clamp's holding capacity signify?
The clamp's holding capacity or holding force represents the capability of a clamp for holding down mechanical equipment or sheet metal while assembling automotive parts or during manufacturing processes.
What is the significance of the red colour of the handle of Destaco clamps?
There is no such significance of colour of the clamp's handle, as it only represents a recognisable area. This helps operators in finding the handle quickly & easily.
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.
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.
