Safety Option for Quick-Die-Change Clamps

July 1, 2008

Serapid, Inc., Sterling Heights, MI, is offering a new safety option for its improved wedge clamp, the TBHS escaping arc clamp. Proximity sensors now are available for all sizes. Customers can specify one of three mounting locations on the clamp for the sensors. They can be mounted parallel, perpendicular or off the back of the clamp.

The TBHS clamp comes in sizes from 2 to 63 tons. It also features a mechanical safety detent so that the die will not drop in the event of a pressure failure. This clamp is well-suited for automated systems, where sensing clamp position is required.
