Down hold action clamping jaws. Extremely powerful clamps for use where high clamping forces are required.
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.
The finger clamps pivot around an eccentric axis, with clamping via either a right (30°) or left (70°) actuation of the eccentric screw.
With a height of less than 6mm and a length of just 20mm mini finger clamps are ideal for multi-component clamping, while maximising access of the tooling. The clamp body is made from spring steel and the eccentric and screw from heat-treated steel, for quick, precise and high clamping forces up to 4000 Newtons.
