Frequently Asked Questions
What is a squeeze action plier clamp?
Destaco squeeze action plier clamps are manually operated squeeze style clamps that are used for various applications including plastic injection moulding, welding & assembly. They are ideal for the automotive, aerospace and food & packaging industries.
What does clamping force mean?
Clamping force is the amount of force actually applied to a workpiece by closing & locking the clamp. It is ordinarily 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.
What is manual clamping?
Unlike pneumatic straight line action clamps, regular manual clamps from Destaco feature separate handles for engaging the plunger to hold the workpiece in place.
What does holding capacity signify in terms of clamps?
The holding capacity or the holding force depicts the clamp's capability to hold down equipment or sheet metal on assembly lines or during similar manufacturing processes.
What is the significance of the red colour of the handle of Destaco clamps?
There is no such significance of the colour of the clamp's handle, as it exclusively represents a recognisable area. This helps operators in finding the handle quickly & easily.
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 Destaco supply any water resistant clamp sensors?
Yes, Destaco also supplies inductive sensors designed in accordance with IP65 standards to ensure protection from powerful hydraulic jets, dust & heavy rain.
