Grip-Clamps®

Product Overview

Aladco® offers a line of pneumatic Grip-Clamps® ideal for automotive, food and other industrial manufacturing requirements. Special heat-treated, alloy steel components offer superior wear and strength. 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 air pressure and clamping force.

Roller-Cam Clamps

Product Overview

The Roller-Cam Clamp has specialized applications and is a patented Aladco® product. The lightweight, compact clamp is ideal for fragile material handling such as glass and plastics. The clamping force is controllable and does not apply a crushing pressure. It has a unique variable clamping range of 0” to 0.12” to accommodate material variations and stacking tolerances. The clamp’s engineering design and material strength provide a dependable, durable product to fit your clamping needs.

Features:

  • Controllable clamping force
  • Eliminates crushing pressures
  • Accommodates material variations and stacking tolerances
  • Variable clamping range is 0 to 0.12″
  • Eliminates frequent tooling adjustments
  • Standard 70 degree arm opening
  • Superior size-to-holding force ratio
  • Lightweight and compact in size
  • Enclosed 0.75″ cylinder rod prevents rod failure
  • Powered by a 2.0″ bore cylinder
  • All heat treated, precision ground alloy steel components for reliability
  • Patented and made in the USA

Shim Block Assemblies

Product Overview

Shim block assemblies are used anywhere a locating position must be held accurately, but also needs to be adjustable. Typically, they are used in sets of two or three for the X & Y/Z locations of a tooling or fixture plate.

Features:

  • Quick and inexpensive way to locate and mount tooling plates and components
  • Available in 2 standard sizes
  • Simple to adjust location by grinding shim to size or adding an additional shim
  • All needed hardware included
  • Made from low carbon steel with black oxide finish
  • Made in the USA

Application Example

The shim block assemblies are mounted against the surface and against the tooling and then tightened down securely with all screws at item #1 & #2. Measurement would then be made to find where tooling is in reference to where it should be. Screws at item #2 & #3 would be loosened so that grinding shim can be removed. Shim will then be ground to size from the initial location measurement. When grinding to the desired size is completed, the shim is put back in, screws at item #3 are tightened which will move the tooling as they are being tightened. Finally, screws at item #2 are tightened and tooling is now located at the new dimension.
