100 psi max (Air)
Air-operated version of our popular hydraulic Swing Clamps, for applications requiring light clamping force. Arm swings clear for easy loading. Sturdy helical-cam mechanism. Arm can be mounted to start its 90° swing from any of four positions, 90° apart. All-threaded version is ideal for mounting through a fixture plate, to keep air lines out of the working area. Flange-base version provides additional mounting options. Available in five sizes.
Available in six sizes, each with a choice of clockwise, counterclockwise, or zero° swing. Clamping force at 100 psi with standard arm:
20 Lbs (2 series)
41 Lbs (3 series)
107 Lbs (4 series)
167 Lbs (5 series)
227 Lbs (6 series)
466 Lbs (7 series)
Air Swing Clamps are pull-type cylinders where part of the total stroke is used to swing the piston, and the remaining stroke is available as the clamping range. Applying air pressure to the A (clamping) port swings arm 90° over workpiece then clamps down. Switching pressure to the B (unclamping) port positively lifts arm then swings it back 90° for loading/unloading.
Do not use with hydraulic fluid. Use an Air Check Valve between the air supply and the Air Clamping Valve to protect against pressure loss if the air supply fails. For extended clamp life, install an Air Extractor Dryer before the Filter/Regulator/Lubricator.
