Used for large diameter clamping. Made from aluminium. Provides strong and even clamping.
The even distribution of the clamping force reduces workpiece deformation. Made from heat treated steel.
For use with chain clamp set 12700. Takeup hook is for the initial pre-tightening of chain prior to final clamping.
Angle block for chain clamp set 12700. Ideal for use when clamping components. Sold as individual pieces.
Our comprehensive range of clamping elements includes a compact and powerful workpiece clamping element, the chain clamping set no. CL2502. This set was specifically designed for clamping large workpieces with round or arched surfaces.
Due to an increase in the bearing surface of the chain, the clamping force is distributed more evenly across the workpiece thereby reducing deformation. The chain set can also be used for clamping of ‘filigree’ workpieces of component parts.
1. Attach the hook unit and the take-up unit as close to the workpiece as possible.
2. Turn the knurled nut on the take-up unit until the pull rod is fully extended. Select the number of chain segments required for the workpiece and attach to the pull rod.
3. Fine adjustment of the chain lengths is made by tightening the knurled nut until the chain slightly touches the workpiece.
4. To clamp the work piece connect the free end of the chain onto the hook unit. Using a hex key tighten the eccentric shaft, and ensure the lever is rotated to its fully locked position (180°). The workpiece is now clamped.
The clamping force achievable through the Hillcliff chain clamp set is dependent upon three factors:
Torque value of 50Nm is used for M12 set. Torque value of 90Nm is used for M16 set.
|Torque||α = 105o||α = 120o||α = 135o||α = 150o||α = 180o|
Important note: Achievable clamping force is reduced as the contact angle of chain and work piece (α) reduces. Please use the table above as a guide.
