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...
