The CL5 hydraulic swing clamp is used specifically to automate the clamping of parts onto machine tables or fixtures. Like our pick & place actuators (e.g. PA2), the linear and rotary sections are independently-controlled. This feature allows the clamp to be stowed in the retracted position, out of the way of tools or part changing activity, which is an important advantage over typical cam-operated swing clamps. With aluminum body/cap and chrome-plated stainless steel rod, it is designed to stand up to aggressive flood coolants.
