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.
