5150 Series Straight Line Action Clamps
Destaco 5150 Series heavy duty straight line action clamps are used to apply clamping force sideways rather than from the top, to secure workpieces in limited space applications. They allow the attached handles to fall below the mounting plane to lock in the retracted position. These straight line clamps have a low profile, compact design for single part & mass production of fixtures and can accommodate loads up to 5800 lb. They feature robust construction for extended life & durability, and have a carbon steel body with black oxide finish for structural rigidity & strength. These straight line action clamps are ideal for welding, light machining and assembly fixturing applications in the automotive, aerospace and food & packaging industries. These straight line clamps are compatible with hex head spindles for workholding, automation and containment solutions. They come with a lever handle that engages the plunger, which presses against a workpiece to hold it in place. Further, they are configured with a square plunger to deliver positive radial location and reverse action (the handle rotates backward as the plunger advances, to keep the handle away from the work zone). These 5150 Series clamps come with hardened bushings and steel pivot pins to ensure prolonged service life and the attached handles can open up to 125 degrees. All models have a solid or flanged base that can be mounted to a worktable or flat surface. Selected models come with the Toggle Lock Plus mechanism to ensure that the over-centre locking condition is maintained and protected against unintentional opening.
These 5150 Series, heavy duty straight line action clamps offer a broad combination of features, making them adaptable for applications such as welding fixtures, assembling fixtures and light machining in the aerospace, automotive and food & packaging industries.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do Destaco 5150 Series straight line action clamps feature Toggle Lock Plus mechanism?
No, Destaco 5150 Series clamps are not equipped with the Toggle Lock Plus mechanism, but Destaco 5150-R and Destaco 5150-MR straight line action clamps feature Toggle Lock Plus, and have similar specifications as that of Destaco 5150 Series clamps.
Does the brand's clamp handle colours mean anything?
No, Destaco clamp handle colours do not offer any real significance. They basically help the operators recognise where the operating handle is, and when or where it should be grabbed while clamping the workpieces.
Can Destaco's red handles 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 other spindle variants does Raptor Supplies offer?
Besides hex head spindles, Raptor Supplies also offers Destaco flat tip bonded spindles, swivel foot spindles and round bonded spindles.
Does Destaco offer spindles in stainless steel construction?
Yes, these Destaco spindles are also available in Type 303 stainless steel variants to provide corrosion-free performance, with enhanced service life. Request a quote for these spindles on Raptor Supplies.
