6001 Series Straight Line Action Clamps
These Destaco 6001 Series straight line action clamps are ideal for heavy duty applications in the aerospace, automotive and food & packaging industries. They are used for applying clamping force to secure workpieces in limited space and are designed for applications requiring repetitive movements & clamp opening / closing such as fixturing & testing, assembling, gluing, soldering, CNC machining and plastic injection molding. These clamps are made of steel / stainless steel to resist corrosion and have robust construction for durability. Destaco 6001 Series employ clamping force from the side rather than the top to secure workpieces in applications having limited space and their mounting pattern accessories can be flipped with the brand's 601 Series. They have a flanged base with threaded holes for easy installation and come integrated with a lever handle that engages the round plunger to press against a workpiece & hold it in place. The ergonomic handle is slanted forward to provide adequate grip as well as ensure over center locking in both retracted and extended position. These Destaco 6001 Series straight line action clamps are capable of holding 50% more loads than the brand's 601 Series of up to 150 lb and come configured with a flanged base having threaded holes to allow easy and secure mounting of the units to a worktable or flat surface. They accommodate Destaco hex head stainless steel spindles for maximum holding force and to deliver high performance workholding, automation and containment solutions.
These Destaco 6001 Series straight line action clamps offer a broad combination of features, making them adaptable to applications such as fixturing & testing, assembling, gluing, soldering, CNC machining and plastic injection molding in the aerospace, automotive and food & packaging industries.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does Raptor Supplies also offer straight line action clamps with the Toggle Lock Plus feature?
Yes, Destaco straight line action clamps are also available in variants featuring the Toggle Lock Plus safety mechanism. You can check out Destaco 6015 Series straight line action clamps on Raptor Supplies.
How does a straight line action clamp work?
A straight line clamp incorporates a sliding plunger to provide straight line clamping action. The plunger can be locked in either pulling or pushing direction for holding workpieces.
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 does the clamp's holding capacity signify?
The clamp's holding capacity or holding force represents the capability of a clamp for holding down any mechanical equipment or a sheet metal while assembling automotive parts or during any manufacturing process.
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.
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 does clamping force mean?
Clamping force is the amount of force actually applied to the 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.
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.
What accessories are compatible with Destaco 6001 Series straight line action clamps?
Destaco 6001 Series straight line action clamps can be used with the brand's 105203, 205208-M, 205943 and 205943-M spindles.
