The StrongHold Select series, a workholding system of hydraulic and pneumatic products, is now offered. The Select-designated products include hydraulic swing clamps, work supports, threaded body cylinders, square body cylinders, pneumatic swing clamps and accessories.
All of these products work together as part of a system, allowing users to secure the clamps holding the workpiece from a one power source. Reductions in setup time are possible, as operators can clamp an entire fixture from one location.
According to the company, benefits include decreased maintenance because of seal and wiper technology that resists contamination and leaks and corrosion resistance as a result of the treated metal surfaces.
