5105, 5110 Series Vertical Hold Down Clamps
These Destaco 5105, 5110 Series vertical hold down clamps are designed to apply downward clamping force by increasing the applied load via toggle mechanisms. They feature steel construction for robustness and have black oxide finish to resist corrosion. These clamps deliver high exerting force and flexible adjustability, and comprise accurately machined components having hardened & ground pivot pins and bushings. They enable the user to undertake an action without frequent movement of the workpiece and the unique pivot pin and lever system ensures excellent performance. These clamps offer a stationary alternative to removable C clamps or spring clamps when securing material to a work surface. They have a holding capacity of 1150 lb and feature a straight handle with an opening angle of 159 degrees. These vertical hold down clamps provide a linkage system that can apply powerful clamping force with little effort to lock or unlock the clamp. They hold workpieces in place using the lever handle that is pushed to the upright position when the clamp is engaged and offer large clearance under clamping bar, with opening angle up to 89 degrees. Destaco toggle clamps are used in grinding, welding, assembling, machining and metal fabricating applications in the aerospace, automotive and food & packaging industries. These vertical hold down clamps have a low pivot point that results in near perpendicular clamping force. They are available in flanged, straight and solid base variants, with threaded holes for secure installation. Selected models are integrated with the Toggle Lock Plus safety feature to ensure that the over centre locking condition is maintained and the clamp remains protected against unintentional opening.
These Destaco 5105, 5110 Series vertical hold down clamps offer a broad combination of features, making them adaptable for applications such as grinding, welding, assembling, machining and metal fabricating. They are used in the aerospace, automotive and food & packaging industries.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are Destaco vertical hold down clamps available with the Toggle Lock Plus safety feature?
Yes, models including Destaco 5105-R vertical hold down clamps, feature the Toggle Lock Plus mechanism to prevent accidental opening of clamps.
What are pneumatic toggle clamps?
Pneumatic toggle clamps feature the same basic design and operation as manual hold-down or straight-line toggle clamps, but are operated pneumatically. They are completely self-contained and require only a pressure source hook-up.
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.
What is the significance of the red colour of the handle of Destaco clamps?
There is no such significance of colour of the clamp's handle, as it only represents a recognisable area. This helps operators in finding the handle quickly & easily.
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.
How are toggle clamps measured?
Toggle clamps are available in multiple variants having different holding capacities. The capacity of a particular toggle clamp can be measured by calculating the distance between the clamping plate (at its highest position) & the workbench.
How does a hold down toggle clamp work?
The toggle clamp actuates against the workpiece and compresses or stretches the equipped linkages to keep the workpiece in a stationary position.
What does holding capacity mean in terms of clamps?
The holding capacity or the holding force depicts the clamp's capability to hold down equipment or sheet metal on the assembly line or during similar manufacturing processes.
Are Destaco clamps rust resistant?
Yes. Destaco 5110 Series vertical handle toggle clamps have a carbon steel body with zinc plating. Destaco also offers a complete line of stainless steel clamps for greater corrosion resistance.
How to use a toggle clamp?
For users to engage the clamping plate with the workpiece, they may have to push the lever downwards. After that, the clamp will automatically lock. This means that the workpiece won’t be released until you pull the lever up.
What is a clamping plate?
Destaco toggle clamps are equipped with a clamping plate that works in conjunction with a work surface to hold the workpiece in place. It pushes against the workpiece to hold it still during clamping. The clamping plate can both swivel as well as tilt, thereby making it ideal when clamping a tapered object.
