Position Monitoring System indicates tool status.

OTT/JAKOB employs electronic analog sensor, which detects position and allows user to monitor drawbar for performance and wear. Electronic unit, attached to machine controller, transmits data, while system indicates whether tools are clamped, unclamped, or not present. Tool head accuracy and longevity are increased by monitoring cycles and hours, which indicate whether tools are properly held....

Gripping Rails suit various sizes of work pieces.

Low profile gripping rails with Pitbull clamps are for grinding and milling non-ferrous materials on magnetic chucks. Rails grind stainless steel, brass, aluminum, and plastic and can be used to improve holding force on ferrous material for more aggressive stock removal. Clamps can be moved along length of rail, into additional holes, for different size work pieces and longer parts can be held by...

Workholding Systems

Cartridge provides power-off clamping force.

Amforce(TM) Force Cartidge applies constant clamping force in applications for fixtures, tools, and pallets to hold parts and components when pressure lines are disconnected. Heavy-duty disk springs are used to produce high pull force on clamp arms. Hydraulic pressure is used only to unclamp work piece; therefore, hydraulic failure has no effect on workholding capability. Cartridge is offered in...

Hand (Tool) Clamps

Heavy Duty Clamps hold more than five tons.

HDP Series Push-Pull style clamps have cast steel construction and produce enough force for light metal forming or assembly work such as swaging, riveting or press fitting components, and clamping. Several styles are available, including long L-handles which can be inserted in front or rear of clamp. Mechanism is inside base, which prevents stray objects and fingers from being caught. Holding...
