These Swing Clamps incorporate our unique safety-clutch mechanism. If the clamping arm strikes an unexpected object during its swing, the clutch disengages to avoid damaging the object or the clamp’s helical-cam mechanism. Do not exceed maximum fluid flow rate in table. For extended clamp life and proper operation of the safety clutch, a simple flow-control valve may be required if the fixture is powered by a high-flow-rate power source and only contains a few clamps. Clamping time should be at least one second.
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 fluid pressure swings arm 90° over workpiece then clamps down. Single-acting version has a fast, totally dependable spring return that lifts arm then swings it back 90° for loading/unloading. Optional fluid return (double acting). Available with clockwise, counterclockwise, or zero° swing.
Mounting & Fluid Supply
These Swing Clamps are available in two versions, one for use with standard fittings and one for manifold mounting. Version 1, for standard fittings, has a 1/4″ BSPP port (two for double-acting clamps). Version 2, for manifold mounting has O-ring ports underneath instead of standard ports. Do not use NPT fittings. For manifold mounting, the mounting surface must be ground flat to ensure proper O-ring sealing.

Flange-base swing clamps are used together with Work Supports on a pallet fixture. All components are manifold mounted, so the fixture is entirely free of tubing lines.
