Toggle clamps - Vertical series
The clamping and control levers move in the same direction. When clamping is obtained, the control lever is in the vertical position. The light version of the series presented in this catalogue has a retaining force between 75 and 875 daN, while the heavy version has a retaining force between 1000 and 3000 daN. The heavy version is used when highly intense resistant forces are used, for example when closing jigs for foams, polyurethanes, etc.
The clamp of this series are built to be easily disassembled for reworking of the individual elements depending on the requirements of use.
PERFORMANCE FOR THE LIGHT SERIES: Components in case-hardening sheet steel. Hardened and tempered supporting pivots. Supporting bushes (for sizes from 130 daN and over) hardened by cementation and ground. The clamping lever is shorn and reinforced in the points of maximum stress. In the closing movement, it is guided laterally to ensure greater stability against possible transverse stresses. Finishing of the series: galvanized
FOR THE HEAVY SERIES: The pivots and supporting bushes are made of tempered and ground steel. The other parts are made of weldable steel. Finishing of the series: phosphated.
The red handles are made of polyurethane and are resistant to oils, solvents and other chemical agents.
In order to prevent accidental openings, caused by vibrations, some tools of this series are provided with a device called, "safety device", suitable for maintaining the clamp in a closed position. This device is also able to lock the tool in open position (Pat.Pend.)
