Carr Lane Roemheld says its swing clamps provide versatility. The clamps offer top flange mounting, so the body of the clamp is hidden below the fixture surface. This affords more room on top of the fixture for parts, says the company.
An integrated safety clutch mechanism can protect the part and the swing clamp from parts being loaded incorrectly or a misaligned arm. In addition, a Viton wiper seal provides resistance to aggressive coolant and hot chips.
Four piston sizes (in clamping forces ranging from 1,200 lbs to 8,100 lbs) are offered. Each piston size has four stroke lengths. If the seven swing options—clockwise swing and counterclockwise swing, each with a choice of 90-, 45-, 60- or 0-degree swing—are factored in, then 84 dual-action versions and 28 single-action versions are available.
