528 Series Hold Down Toggle Clamps

Destaco 528 Series vertical hold down clamps are suitable for applying downward clamping force by increasing the applied load via toggle mechanisms. These units feature large bar guides for excellent lateral stability. They comprise precisely machined components having hardened & ground pivot pins and bushings. They hold workpieces in place using a lever handle that is pushed to the upright position when the clamp is engaged. These clamps offer a stationary alternative to removable C clamps or spring clamps while securing material to a work surface. Destaco 528 Series vertical hold down clamps are used in welding, grinding, machining and metal fabrication applications. These clamps are made of steel for resisting corrosion on exposed surfaces. These vertical hold-down clamps have a low pivot point that results in near perpendicular clamping forces. They are available in flanged and front mount base variants, with threaded holes for easy and secure installation. Destaco 528 Series vertical hold down clamps feature a fixed design to secure & loosen workpieces without moving the clamp itself. These hold down toggle clamps are equipped with a high strength, forged alloy steel clamping arm for increased strength and handling a maximum load of 1000 lb.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

Which grease is recommended for use with Destaco clamps when rebuilding?

While dealing with the brand's mechanical clamps, we would recommend using a coupling grease like Mobil XTC. When using pneumatic cylinder seals, use the Magnalube G grease. They only require a few drops of lubricating oil to keep them in excellent condition.

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 528 Series vertical handle toggle clamps have a carbon steel body with zinc plating. They also have a full line of stainless steel clamps for greater corrosion resistance.

What does clamping pressure mean?

The holding power of a toggle clamp is a crucial factor to take into account before starting an application. The operator has to place the right amount of pressure on the workpiece while clamping. We suggest not to exceed the recommended pressure because it may tremendously damage your workpiece. In addition, too little weight is also not ideal.

What does hold-down action mean?

Destaco hold-down action clamps apply force in the downward direction. It is perpendicular to the tools that are mounting the surface. They come in vertical and horizontal styles.
