HLC - Hydraulic Lever Clamp



Technical Data


  1. Clamping strokes and full strokes are for standard models; custom strokes available on request.
  2. Dimensions A, B, C and D determined by T-slot dimensions.
  3. Specify T-slot dimensions (a, b, c, d) and clamping height (h) when ordering.
  4. Specify dimension "h" down to 0.20" increments.
  5. Clamps with a dimension greater than Max. hare also optionally available.


MEE specs


Operating Procedure:

  1. Visually inspect clamp for obvious defects and make certain that the hydraulic power supply is disactivated and that the clamp jaw is fully tipped back (hydraulic piston is its retracted position).
  2. Place clamp into T-slot.
  3. Push clamp forward (toward die) as far as possible to ensure proper seating. Make certain that the die shoe surface is free of debris and lubricants.
  4. Inspect the gap between the clamping jaw and the die surface to ensure that it does not exceed the full stroke of the clamp. WARNING: Clamp will not generate clamp force if gap exceeds the full stroke.
  5. Activate hydraulic supply.

To Unclamp - Reverse procedure.
