FIXTUREWORKS’ new lineup of One-Touch manual clamps offer easy and efficient clamping and unclamping of a workpiece in one simple operation. Each clamp is designed to eliminate the need for tools when applying the clamping force, and helps reduce setup time and increases productivity. The One-Touch series includes swing, push, pull, retractable, thrust, snap and side clamps in a range of clamping force.
Swing clamps operate by rotating the handle, which simultaneously swings the clamp arm over the workpiece into the clamping position. Further rotation of the handle draws the clamp arm down and applies direct downward force on the work piece. The swing clamps are available with cam, adjustable and spiral-acting handles. The clamping forces applied by these swing clamps range between 170-2,250 lb.
Push clamps are designed to exert pressure against a strap clamp or work piece by rotating the handle, which then forces the center piston to extend out. Simply rotating the handle in the opposite direction retracts the center piston. Push clamps can exert forces up to 890 lb. and can be utilized in either a vertical or horizontal position.
Pull clamps are available in two different variations, both of which operate in conjunction with a clamping pin or clamping screw to provide quick and secure fastening in repetitive operations. By rotating the handle, the clamping pin or screw is retracted into the clamp, properly locating and holding the work piece in place. The amount of clamping force ranges between 200-1,800 lb.
