Clamps from PHD offer low cost of ownership, exceptional flexibility, and are unsurpassed in ruggedness. PHD Pneumatic Clamps and their electric variations are for use in automated sheet metal stamping in transfer presses, welding, metal forming, and assembly applications. PHD offers many styles, sizes and options of heavy duty pneumatic clamping products including 2-jaw clamps, toggle, swing, and pin clamps, as well as die lifters for sheet metal handling equipment. PHD Pneumatic Clamps are ideal for all air actuated work holding and part transfer solutions.
Lightweight units with high clamp force and feature a cost competitive design. Series GRM1 Clamps provide 225 pounds of total clamp force, weigh less than a pound. These clamps are field repairable in 10 minutes using metric hex wrenches.
Ideal for sheet metal clamping and feature a simple design, high clamp force, and durability. Units are available in two sizes with 13 jaw styles each, up to 500 pounds clamp force, and include many options for mounting, switches, and tips. The adjustable rotation stop allows for multiple jaw openings in one clamp. Series GRM Pneumatic Clamps are designed to offer the best price, design, and delivery for solutions involving the transfer of sheet metal or other like objects.
Feature high clamping force on a lightweight body, and are often used as the end effector of a robotic arm. As with the previous design, these clamps are designed with a completely enclosed pin and long life seals that can withstand the dirt and water present in shop air, but now are more versatile as we have increased the available pin diameters and now offer three different pin styles. Pin position sensing allows for open or closed sensing with an industry standard AC or DC weld field immune switch mounted in a protected housing.
Feature a fully enclosed pin which completely retracts to allow greater ease of panel removal. Fingers may extend or retract independent of the main pin. New dual switch provides control feedback for all four clamp conditions with industry standard switches mounted in a protected housing. Series PLKD Pneumatic Clamps are ideal for part clamping, particularly in the automotive industry.
Feature a high clamping force and a design capable of clamping large parts. The completely enclosed design provides maximum protection against weld slag and other contaminants. Pin position sensing allows for open or closed sensing with an industry standard AC or DC weld field immune switch mounted in a protected housing.
Feature a rugged cam design that provides consistent clamping force of up to 11,250 pounds throughout a wide power window. A wide jaw throat accommodates large parts with simple tooling. Series PFC Clamps are designed to clamp heavy parts such as the frame of an automobile.
Feature the widest range in clamping force in its class and the ability to lock in closed position for the last 6° of rotation. Multiple output shaft options allow the clamp arms to be mounted on either or both sides. Series PEC Power Clamps are ideal for holding parts in welding and assembly applications.
Feature a simple design, small size, high clamp force, and long life. Five sizes and left and right rotations are offered to accommodate a wide variety of tasks. Series PA Pneumatic Clamps are ideal for automated clamping.
Feature options for long or short strokes as well as matching mounting patterns as a drop-in replacement. Four bore sizes with short or long strokes are offered to accommodate a wide variety of tasks. Left or right rotations are available and can be ordered to fit the application. Series PB Clamps are designed as superior clamping solutions for automotive, packaging, assembly, and general automation industries.
Number Cruncher® Clamp, features a high clamp force to stamp characters in draw quality steel. Available in three sizes, the largest produces up to 48,330 pounds (215 kN) of clamp force with 87 psi (6 bar) to effectively stamp dates, shift numbers, and model numbers into metal panels and other materials. Series PNC Clamps are ideal for identification stamping in a wide range of industries including assembly machine builders, automotive suppliers, and aerospace.
Feature a short body length, high pin package accuracy, and the best repeatability in its class. A precision ground ram, PTFE hard-coated aluminum bearings, and a patent pending anti-rotation bearing system provide extremely high pin package accuracy. Urethane wipers or optional bronze scrapers provide excellent protection from contamination.
Feature a simple design and the ability to handle high off-center loads. Built-in rod compliance eliminates side load on the cylinder’s piston rod. Units are available in multiple stroke lengths and are available as drop-in replacements. Series PHL Slides are ideal for automated, high-load part lifting in automotive and assembly machine builder industries.
