Available from Mitee-Bite, the Uniforce clamp is a wedge-style edge clamp that holds two workpieces with equal pressure on each piece. The wedge principal generates a high force relative to the size of the wedge. The clamp consists of a steel wedge in an aluminum channel and a screw. As the screw is tightened, the wedge is lowered in the channel, which expands to exert holding force on the sides of two workpieces. According to the company, the clamp’s compact design increases load density. Workpieces can be flat or round, as the clamp lends itself to holding most shapes on either a vertical or horizontal position, the company says. Seven different sizes are available.
