ALADCO offers a line of Pneumatic Grip-Clamps® ideal for your particular automotive, food and other industrial manufacturing requirements. Special heat treated alloy steel components offer superior wear and toughness. Adjustable cushions provide smooth, long operation. Standard arms allow for a wide range of tooling clearances. We offer toggle lock and power lock clamps allowing greater flexibility to fit all your manufacturing needs.
Toggle vs Power
The toggle clamp is used for added safety and is designed so that the linkage goes over-center and remains in a positive locked position even in the absence of air pressure. The toggle clamp is unlocked only by the cylinder powering the linkage back through the over-center locked position.
The power lock is designed so that the linkage does not go over-center providing for variable clamping thicknesses.
We recommend the use of Aladco check valves for toggle and power applications to maintain the air pressure and clamping force.
