compact construction, separate clamping and locking M 12
Floating clamps with separate clamp 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

Mount the floating clamp (mounting holes for M 6, see drawing ) onto the device.
Adjust the height limit stop and the rotating area with the sleeve and clamp with a set screw (4x WS 2.5). When setting the height limit, consider tolerance of workpiece.
Push the floating clamp downward.
Pivot the clamping jaws in.
Release floating clamp. The bottom jaw contacts the workpiece with a low spring force.
Tighten the fixture nut (WS 18) having a maximum torque of 15 Nm. The workpiece is clamped; the clamp is still floating.
