A comprehensive range of low profile clamps that are suitable for Low height components. Some features include; down force, multi-component clamping, bunt and knife edge clamps.
The more traditional type of clamps for manual workholding solutions with a varied range. Some of the range include; plain clamps, forked clamps and fingers clamps.
Our range of high quality adjustable vertical clamps are used for over height clamping and can provide clamping forces up to 50kN.
Wixroyd gives you various workholding solutions when clamping bores and shafts such as chain clamps for large diameter work pieces and internal clamps to hold internal bores.
Wixroyd offers two types of t-slot bolts one in strength class 8.8/10 and the extra strength version in 12,9 class
Self aligning pads can be used to act as stops, supports and thrust elements. This particular range comes in steel with a longer thread and lock nut to make it adjustable in height to suit your application.

Used in our clamps:
11080.W0610 to 11083.
Our horizontal clamps have a unique “three finger” arrangement ensuring components are both pulled down and clamped in the same motion. The face of the clamp is made of three parts or fingers:
Available in two styles – smooth and serrated face. They can also cater for workpieces with an adverse angle on the clamping face – for example flame cut steel blanks.
The clamps’s outer flexible fingers 1 are approx. 0,254mm longer than the solid central finger/clamping stop 2, this slight difference in length means it is the flexible fingers which first come into contact with the workpiece.
As initial contact is made with the work-piece the flexible fingers 1 apply downward pressure forcing the workpiece down against the work table, the flexible fingers are compressed until they are the same length as the solid central finger/clamping stop 2.
As the solid central finger/clamping stop 2 comes into contact with the work-piece it applies high side clamping pressure to achieve clamping forces up to 2,2 tons (dependent upon clamping model selected).
During machining the uniquely designed flexible fingers 1 continue to flex and twist applying downward pressure to keep the workpiece flat to the work table throughout.
