Floating Clamps - combined clamping and locking M 12_Drawings
The floating clamp is used to clamp and support additional clamping points on components.
The benefits of the floating clamp are:
avoids vibration during the processing
clamps ribs, beads and shackles to reinforce clamped components
distortion-free clamping of raw parts.
Mount the floating clamp (M 12 connection thread) onto the device with a wrench (WS 46).
Adjust the height limit stop and the rotating area with the red sleeve and clamp with a set screw (3 x WS 2.5). When setting the height limit, consider tolerance of workpiece.
Push the floating clamp downwards.
Pivot the clamping jaws in as far as possible. The floating clamp contacts the bottom of the workpiece with a slight spring load.
Tighten the floating clamp with a hexagonal nut (WS 18) having a min. torque of 15 Nm and a maximum torque of 30 Nm. In the clamping process, the workpiece is clamped and simultaneously supported.
Releasing is done in reverse order.
The thread bore must always be closed for safe functioning, e.g. set screw M 12 x 10.
For specific clamping situations, the standard clamping jaws supplied can be exchanged or replaced (see catalogue drawing: screw ISO 4762 - M8 - 12.9, M max. = 43 Nm).
