3600 psi max
Hinge Clamps have a sturdy linkage configuration that moves the clamping arm forward as it pivots into clamping position. This specially designed linkage allows the clamp to exert nearly perfectly vertical clamping force. The clamping arm retracts fully for clear loading from above. Ideal for clamping in narrow recesses. Durable, economical clamp with an easy-to-clean mechanism and standard metallic wiper. The top-flange version shown here is designed specifically for space-saving manifold mounting.
Available in four clamp sizes, double acting only, each with either a standard clamping arm with swivel contact bolt, a long clamping arm for customization or without a clamping arm for a user-manufactured arm. Clamping force at 3600 psi with standard clamping arm:
The ideal clamping height in most cases is "H", because arm motion is totally vertical at that height. This avoids applying any horizontal force to the workpiece during clamping.
For low mounting, install cylindrical base in a bored hole, then fasten the top flange with four socket-head cap screws. For high mounting, use an optional intermediate plate with four longer socket-head cap screws.
Two 1/8" BSPP or 1/4" BSPP ports, A for clamping, B for unclamping. For optional manifold mounting, use the A and B manifold ports underneath the clamp by unscrewing the sealing plugs and installing two CLR-9210-145-F Connecting Inserts (also install two CLR-901-F Port Plugs in the 1/4" BSPP ports). Do not use NPT fittings.
Two 1/8" BSPP or 1/4" BSPP ports, A for clamping, B for unclamping – on any of three sides. Do not use NPT fittings.
These clamps can be ordered with an extended piston rod for inductive or pneumatic position monitoring. For inductive position monitoring, order an inductive monitoring end cap (separately or already installed), two CLR-3829-198-PM inductive proximity switches, and two CLR-3829-099-PM right-angle push plugs with cable. For pneumatic position monitoring, order a pneumatic monitoring end cap (separately or already installed). Monitoring devices can be turned to any of the four sides.
