Standard parts specialist JW Winco is expanding its existing range of clamping elements by adding new side clamps suitable for universal and specific assemblies. They’re ideal for use in jig and tool construction and small series production.
The new standard parts come in various versions: with clamping screws, hand levers, cam levers, and matching accessories. They come with clamping thread GN 9190.1 and can be fastened to a machine table or fixture by T-slots for easy machining of workpieces.
The clamping force of the rotary-mounted clamping jaws acts laterally, as well as from above to pull down on the workpiece and clamp it against fixed stops and the supporting surface.
Thanks to the low overall height of the side clamps, the workpiece can be machined over its entire surface. Depending on the application, choose from fluted or prismatic clamping jaws and side clamps with or without integrated support.
The new clamps are also available with either a ballpoint screw or an adjustable hand lever with an integrated ballpoint screw. The latter enables the clamping element to be actuated without tools. When the clamping screw is loosened, the jaws are retracted to their initial position through spring force, and the workpiece is released.
For extremely quick and frequent clamping, JW Winco offers the side clamp GN 9190 with a spiral tension lever, which generates its clamping force with a self-locking spiral that ensures constant forces at all times. JW Winco's side clamps are made of high-grade case-hardened steel, making them extremely durable and of premium quality.
JW Winco offers slotted support blocks GN 9190.3 in its range as matching accessories. They can be used to fasten the side clamps to machine tables in any position, even perpendicular to the T-slot.
