combined support and clamping,
incl. fastening for T-slots.
* Clamping stroke = clamping range with upper and lower standard clamping jaw.
1. Fasten floating clamp on fixture or machine table.
2. Adjust height stop and swivel range with red adjustment sleeve and lock with threaded stud. When setting the upwards height limitation, allow for generous play (workpiece manufacturing tolerance).
3. Press floating clamp downwards.
4. Swivel clamping jaws in as far as they will go.
- The floating clamp is positioned with light spring force on bottom of workpiece.
5. Tighten floating clamp with hexagon nut.
- During the clamping process the workpiece is clamped and at the same time supported.
6. Unclamping is carried out in the reverse sequence.
- The floating clamp is used to clamp and support overdetermined clamping points on components.
- For customer-specific clamping situations the supplied clamping jaws can be replaced with the following clamping jaws (Nos. 6419B-12 and 6418B-16) (max. tightening torque = 43 Nm)
- Especially suitable for large, hard-to-machine components (size 16).
- No deformation when clamping weak components.
- Vibration suppression during machining.
- Clamping of ribs, creases and tabs for stiffening on clamped components.
- Deformation-free clamping of blanks.
