ROEMHELD, represented by Romheld Australia , has released a double-acting hydraulic hinge-clamp with a maximum operating pressure of 200 bar. The 1825-500 hinge-clamp produces 18kN clamp force for simple clamping tasks. It is suitable for use in machining fixtures, offering compact design, interchangeable contact bolts and mounting in any position.
Full clamp force is achieved over a 6mm range between the upper and lower clamping points, allowing for easy setup and variations in the workpiece. Hinge-clamps can be used alongside swing-clamps and other types to produce the most effective overall fixture. In some applications the hinge-clamp may be preferable if there is not enough room to allow the swing-clamp arm to swing.
Workpieces can be easily inserted from above as the clamp lever pivots completely beyond the front face of the clamp. Oil supply is via threaded ports and a choice of clamp arms provides options for the fixture designer.
CAD files in all formats are available for download from the Roemheld website.
