Extended toggle clamp range

Engineering components supplier WDS Component Parts has expanded its offering of toggle clamps, adding new sizes at both the small and large end of the range, plus filling in some intermediate gaps and introducing new design variants.

Toggle clamps use a plunger to produce a positive linear force and are typically used to hold workpieces for machining or to position and hold parts of an assembly. Their two main advantages are that they can be operated quickly and one-handed, so are less fiddly than doing up a nut and bolt, and they are designed to automatically apply a pre-determined amount of force.

The WDS range now incorporates many versions of toggle clamps including hook toggles, horizontal and vertical clamps, push-pull units, latch toggles, toggle presses, plier clamps, lockable clamps, cam action clamps and clamps with adjustable spindles. The new additions to the range include small vertical push-pull clamps with easy to grip T-handles and clamps with rubber tipped plungers that obviate the need to buy a separate cap.

There are also new stainless-steel hygienic clamps added to the range, which will typically be used in hygienic or corrosive environments and for use in workholding during the manufacture of medical equipment.

Additionally, to complement its toggle clamps range, WDS offers a number of accessories such as plunger end pads, covers, riser brackets and spindles. These can be used to customise the clamps to exactly meet the needs of the application in hand.
