850 Series Pneumatic Toggle Clamps
Destaco 850 Series pneumatic toggle clamps employ compressed air to apply clamping pressure for holding workpieces in place, and are widely used in the automotive and food & packaging industries. These toggle clamps are integrated with a pneumatic cylinder having an input port for connecting to the compressed air source. These clamps come equipped with a lever that can be engaged for applying pneumatic pressure to the clamping head. They feature an enclosed design for applications in dirty environments (such as MIG & spot welding), and a non-pivoting cylinder that can easily be hard-piped into fixtures. These pneumatic toggle clamps have a sensor ready design for round and T-slot style sensors. 850 Series Destaco pneumatic clamps have a long clamping arm with a maximum holding capacity of 16000 lb (7257.477 kg). These clamps feature a pneumatic cylinder with an in-built flow control system that helps in smooth clamping, and a magnetic piston ring to ensure precise position sensing. These pneumatic hold down clamps are pneumatic versions of Destaco 650 Series manual straight line action clamps and are capable of being operated at temperatures ranging from -14 degrees Fahrenheit to 195 degrees Fahrenheit. These pneumatic clamps have 1/8 & G-1/4 inch NPT ports, and are compatible with Destaco 850450-63-1-00 replacement seal assembly & Destaco 810169 round reed switch with quick disconnect cable.
