For safety reasons, workpieces must be held in position using a specific amount of force. Work holding clamps are designed to do just that. They keep workpieces in place, so they don’t shift or slip and put the operator in harm’s way.
Destaco work holding clamps, available in Canada from Wainbee, are the ideal tool for this application. The company’s 81L Series pneumatic power clamps, for example, are built to meet the most demanding requirements, and come in various styles, sizes and torques to meet the needs of each application and ensure safety.
Multiple models available
81L Series pneumatic power clamps are available in multiple sizes, with different arm styles and various torques. Customers can select between 12-, 16-, 20- and 25-millimetre cylinder bore sizes, horizontal and vertical clamping arm styles, as well as maximum holding torques of 25, 60 and 100 Nm, depending on the model selected. Maximum clamping torques range between 4,5 Nm at 5bar, 7,0 Nm at 5bar and 18 Nm at 5bar.
Accessories can also be added on to meet the exact needs of the application. For example, customers can order a sensor with three-wire cable and M8x1 connector. An adapter for mounting can also be purchased.
