Wedge Clamp 

Wedge clamps come in a variety of styles allowing customers to configure clamping arrangements using a range of options from cooling circuits to sequence valve controls.
The wedge clamping elements, with single or dual action, exert forces of 3 to 69 US tons and have a maximum temperature rating of 570F. The clamps can be actuated via hydraulic, electric or springs. Position sensors are available to verify the extended / clamped or retracted / unclamped positions. Learn More


Die Lifters 

Hydraulic die lifters from Hilma provide a roller surface to easily roll dies in and out during the die change process. The dies can be moved in a linear movement, forwards or backwards, and are for medium to heavy loads.

Hydro-Mechanical Clamping Nut 

Hilma’s hydro-mechanical clamping nut is a die-clamping solution that does not require a pump or hose. The manual torqued clamp has an indicator pin that extends to signal the operator when the clamp has reached its full clamping force. The ergonomic clamping nut provides high clamping force, to 16 tons with low-input torque, reducing the operator’s time and risk of injury.

Sliding Clamp

Hilma’s sliding clamp is positioned manually in the T-slots of the press ram or bed. It clamps on the edge of the die by applying hydraulic pressure to the piston and unclamps by spring force. The “compact” sliding clamp consists of a hydraulic clamping block which will be attached with two screws to a T-slot adapter. The clamping block can also be purchased separately to be directly mounted without a T-slot adapter.

Hollow Piston Cylinder 

Hilma’s Hollow Piston Cylinder is manually placed on the clamping edge of the die. The die is clamped by applying hydraulic pressure to the piston and mechanically unclamped by spring return. The T-bolt clamps the die on the clamping surface of the press ram or bed. Includes Spherical disk for optimum adaptation to the clamping surface, and is threaded for inch T-bolts.
