Double Acting (D/A) Cylinders, actuated hydraulically both directions.
WARNING! Never allow swing arm to contact workpiece or fixture during arm rotation.
** Cylinder capacities are listed at 5,000 psi maximum operating pressure, with a standard length VektorFlo® arm installed. Minimum operating pressure is 750 psi for single acting, 500 psi for double acting. The clamping force is adjustable by varying the hydraulic system pressure. To determine the approximate output force for your application, divide the cylinder capacity shown above by 5,000, and multiply the Resultant Number X Your System Operating Pressure to obtain the approximate clamping force for your application. (Actual force will vary slightly due to internal cantilever loading, frictional loss, and/or return springs.)
*** To allow for work piece height variation, we recommend the arm contact point be set to approximate the midpoint of the clamping stroke.
**** To insure maximum service life and trouble-free operation, restrict fluid flow to the level indicated in the Clamp Time and Fluid Flow Rate Chart.
All dimensions are in inches.
Single and Double Acting
Hardened V-cam tracks resist damage and give you a built in extra cam (opposite swing direction) or straight line option should you accidentally damage one. Specify left, right or straight cam, we'll preset the swing when you order.
SAE porting from three directions on larger models gives you five alternatives for plumbing. You can use standard fittings in any of the three sets of ports or manifold by bolting up or down.
Easily installed using standard capscrews. The large base and one piece mounting give this clamp excellent rigidity.
* Models 15-2105-01 (L, R, and S) and 15-2205-01 (L, R, S) do not include the option for manifold mounting from the to of the base. All ports (except breather), are shipped with removable steel plugs installed
** All (5) mounting bolts must be usedwhen manifold mounting to assure proper o-ring faceseal.
