compact construction, separate clamping and locking M 12
Floating clamps with separate clamping and locking are used to clamp and support additional clamping points on extremly pliable workpieces. Both, clamping and supporting force can individually be designed.
The benefits of the floating clamp are:
Avoids vibration during the processing
Clamps ribs, beads and shackles to reinforce clamped components
Distortion-free clamping of raw parts
Compact version with reduced height.
Aluminium, blue anodised
Case hardened steel, nitrided, manganese phosphate treated and ground
Case hardened steel, nitrided, manganese phosphate treated
Mount the floating clamp onto the device (mounting holes for M 6, see drawing).
Adjust the height limit stop and the rotating area with the sleeve, and clamp with set screw (4x WS 2.5). When setting the height limit upwards provide generous clearance (workpiece tolerance).
Push the floating clamp downwards.
Pivot the clamping jaws inwards.
Release floating clamp. The bottom jaw contacts the workpiece with the force of the contact spring.
Tighten the fixture nut (WS 18) (max. torque 15 Nm). The jaws clamp the workpiece - the clamp is still floating.
Then tighten the hexagon collar nut (WS 10) (max. torque 10 Nm).
The workpiece clamping process is complete.
Releasing is performed in the reverse order: Release hexagon collar nut (WS 10) - release hexagon nut (WS 18) - pivot out the clamping jaws
Floating clamp is in end position.
For specific clamping situations, the standard clamping jaws supplied can be exchanged or replaced (see catalogue drawing: screw ISO 4762 - M8 - 12.9, M max. = 43 Nm).
As an accessory, we offer clamping jaws with an increased clamping range, refer to 23320.0050-.0058, as well as pivot jaws, refer to 23320.0148-.0156.
