817, 827 Series Pneumatic Toggle Clamps
Destaco 817 & 827 Series pneumatic toggle clamps are designed for quick clamping in the automotive and food & packaging industries. These portable pneumatic clamps are integrated with air actuated cylinders for applying clamping pressure & holding workpieces in place. The air pressure is applied in the clamping port, which moves the clamping arm to hold the workpiece. Then the required clamping force is achieved and exerted on the workpiece. Under this action, Destaco 827 Series pneumatic toggle clamps hold the work piece firmly and positively. For unlocking the clamp, the air pressure is applied in the unclamping port. They are completely self contained & require only a pressure source for safety. These pneumatic toggle clamps are sensor ready for both round and T slot style sensors, and feature built in flow restriction to eliminate the need for external flow controls. These units allow economical use on short-run jobs with temporary fixturing and are equipped with magnetic piston rings for precise position sensing. They allow dual mounting surfaces for maximum flexibility and are capable of handling loads up to 700 lb. These pneumatic toggle clamps can be operated at temperatures ranging from -14 to 194 degrees Fahrenheit, and are available in solid & U bar clamping arm variants for keeping workpieces securely in place. Destaco 817 & 827 Series pneumatic toggle clamps are equipped with a clamping arm that provides wider clearance for easy loading using a sturdy helical-cam mechanism operated by a double-acting air cylinder. These units feature a large opening angle that ensures easy component removal.
These Destaco 817 & 827 Series pneumatic toggle clamps are suitable for applications such as grinding, welding, assembly and light machining in the automotive and food & packaging industries.
Frequently Asked Questions
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
