Fixtureworks, a supplier of workholding components, material handling products, machine tool components and fixturing accessories, now offers an expanded lineup of Imao ‘One-Touch' style clamps with the addition of higher clamping force, compact and mini-sized selection. Fixtureworks offers the swing style mini clamps with both clockwise and counter-clockwise clamping actuation. These miniature clamps swing into position and clamp straight down onto the workpiece for direct downward pressure. The arm swings completely out of the way to allow for easy loading and unloading of the workpiece. The adjustable handle allows for greater clamping stroke and force. It also allows for tightening in limited space and can be moved out of the way to avoid interference. With their compact size and style options, the mini-clamp lineup offers engineers a wide range of design flexibility for fixtures and workholding systems. Imao's One- Touch actuation system, workpiece loading/unloading is fast and simple and the clamps are suitable for repetitive clamping procedures.
All of the clamp components (except handle knobs) are produced from high quality steel, quenched, tempered and with black oxide finish.
