Floating clamps with separate clamping and locking are used to clamp and support additional clamping points on extremly pliable workpieces. Both, clamping and supporting force can be designed individually.
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.
