Clamps provide enhanced ergonomics, holding power

January 9, 2007

DE-STA-CO's Horizontal Handle Hold-Down Action Clamps (models 2013, 2017, 2027, and 2037) deliver 60 percent more holding capacity than the legacy models in the same envelope, the company says.

A knob on the end of the open U bar of the clamps prevents spindle slippage. Additionally, a unique patented design provides increased hand clearance in the open position, improving ergonomics and safety by eliminating pinch points.

The clamps come with an ergonomic handle grip, two flanged washers and spindle assembly, and straight base options are available. Maximum holding capacity ranges from 295 lbs. to 1,680 lbs., ensuring applicability across a wide range of operational demands. Low pivot points provide for a perpendicular clamp force. The straight downward action helps to prevent movement of the workpiece in the fixture.
