Heavy-duty clamping

The Elesa range of heavy-duty manual latch and toggle clamps in the MTP and MPB series are supplemented with their PPC pneumatic drive units for push-button or automated operation.

A particular feature of Elesa heavy-duty clamps is their in-built adaptability to suit workholding, jig closure etc, by virtue of their adjustment and/or weldability for integration into workstation equipment, “an aspect greatly facilitated by their ease of disassembly/rebuild which speeds both installation and maintenance so saving money while providing a high-quality production solution”, said the company.

The MTP/MTP-D are hook-style quick-release clamps in steel, offering a linear or right-angled pull from 12,000 to 40,000N closing force, while the MPB vertical toggle clamps provide closure force from 10,000 to 30,000N.

Added Elesa: “Where manual operation is too slow or perhaps multiple repetitive operations are to be avoided, then the PPC pneumatic clamp is an obvious solution, providing up to 20,000N.”
