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 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 simple design, compact size, long actuator life, and the ability to absorb high impact forces. The unit's compact design allows it to fit inside a progressive die where it will retract or "disappear" from the work area as panels move to the next stage of processing. Series PDG Slides are ideal for stopping and positioning sheet metal panels or other parts.
Feature a simple design, compact size, long actuator life, and the ability to absorb high impact forces. Built-in rod compliance eliminates side load on the cylinder’s piston rod. Series PDK Slides are ideal for pushing sheet metal into location for precise positioning.
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.
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 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, and are delivered within 24 hours from receipt of order.
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 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 simple design, compact size, long actuator life, and the ability to absorb high impact forces. A compact size allows the unit to fit inside the press and close to the panel, to accommodate short tooling arms. Series PLL Slides are ideal for lifting light sheet metal panels out of dies.
Feature a slide and clamp combination actuator powered with only one external valve. Units can be rotated and spherically adjusted to match panels for fast and accurate setup. These actuators are available in three standard stroke lengths adjustable from full stroke down to 1/2 inch. Series PS Clamps are ideal for the loading and unloading of panels with just one external valve.
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.
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.
Ideal for sheet metal clamping and feature a simple design, clamp force up to 250 pounds, and durability. Units are available in 13 jaw styles, 24 jaw openings, and include many options for mounting, switches, and tips. This electric clamp has integrated the controller into the motor cover to protect the controller from physical and electrical damage.
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 tapered rod end for easy angle adjustment as well as mounting patterns for drop-in replacements. Left or right rotations are available and can be ordered to fit the application. Series PC Pneumatic Clamps are designed as superior clamping solutions in automotive, packaging, assembly, and general automation industries.
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.
