Frequently Asked Questions
What is the importance of a latch clamp?
Destaco latch clamps firmly hold down workpieces and keep them stationary, without being interrupted by recurring movements of the project you are working on.
Does Destaco offer latches separately for clamps?
Yes, Destaco offers latch plates to easily replace worn out or obsolete latches, thereby ensuring that projects do not suffer. These latch plates are available in carbon steel and stainless steel variants.
What does clamping force mean?
Clamping force is the amount of force actually applied to a 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.
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.
Does the brand's clamp handle colour mean anything?
No, Destaco clamp handle colours do not offer any real significance. The colour basically helps the operators recognise where the operating handle is, and when or where it should be grabbed while clamping the workpieces.
Can Destaco's handle grips be removed from their clamps?
In general, Destaco handle grips can be detached by sliding them off. However, some grips would have to be cut off as they are vinyl dipped to fit the contour of the underlying handle design.
What is a vertical handle toggle clamp?
Vertical handle toggle clamps, also known as toggle clamps, are capable of holding a huge amount of pressure and have a unique cam action to hold workpieces of inconsistent height without adjusting the attached hold down spindle.
