The UK manufacturer and stockist of standard parts and components, WDS Components Ltd, has increased its range of economical toggle clamps. The new additions to the range include vertical and horizontal mounting options and are constructed from durable mild steel with an anti-corrosive zinc plating. The new economical range additions sit alongside WDS’ expansive range of premium quality stainless steel toggle clamps.
Toggle clamps are used to manually locate, position and secure a workpiece or component, typically for manufacturing production such as wood or metal working. The toggle action is based on a locking principle that moves a linkage to a centre position, held in place by a locking arm that clamps the workpiece into position. This mechanism ensures secure yet fast manual clamping, suitable for repeated use with multiple workpieces.
WDS’s mild steel, zinc plated toggle clamp range is distinguished by the red vinyl handle, which is oil resistant and designed to provide a secure grip. The new variants to the range include a vertical, face mounting toggle clamp, available in 35mm arm length with a 100kg holding force, as well as 87mm arm length with a 227kg holding force.
The same design toggle clamp, vertically rather than face-mounted, plus an adjustable spindle for extra clamping flexibility, is also new. This range spans an arm length of 31mm with a 75kg holding force, to an 85mm arm length with a 360kg holding force. The range extension also includes horizontal toggle clamps, with an adjustable spindle model that provides up to 22kg holding force and an adjustable stop variant that delivers up to 340kg holding force.
To aid product selection, full specifications are available on wdscomponents.com, which also includes CAD and 3D images to increase the ease and speed of design integration. The new toggle clamps are also part of WDS’ stock guarantee programme, an assurance of stock availability that promises a discount on the next order should the desired quantity not be available.
The toggle clamps can also be combined with WDS’ wider range of clamping devices including manual multiplier clamps, a selection of toggle latches and fasteners, as well as wood working vices.
