Type EPV - Solid clamping arm
GN863 Pneumatically Operated Clamps (Heavy Duty)
These pneumatically operated clamps, GN 863, have been constructed in such a way as to make them easily demountable. The bearing pins are axially fixed with circlips. This allows the clamping arm to be modified once it is dismantled, to suit any particular application.
To ensure an extended life of the mechanical parts as well as the air cylinder the operating pressure should not exceed 6 bar. In addition, a lubrication control unit should be fitted in the air in-feed line.
GN863 heavy duty pneumatic lock-down toggle clamps are also available as version M (magnetic piston). In conjunction with a proximity switch GN896.3 the piston position is sensed and the generated signal can be used in sequence control systems.
