The 10 Xpansion clamp is the ideal way to hold parts on an inside diameter for multiple machining on a vertical machining center or a horizontal machining center.
These machinable clamps are produced in 6 sizes and can hold internal diameters from under 1/2 inch to over 2 inches. The 2 smaller clamps use a heat treated tapered screw for expansion while the other 4 use a heat treated tapered cone.
The larger diameter of the clamp is held to a close tolerance for precision locating in a machined pocket on work cubes and fixture plates.
The customer machines the mild steel clamp to match the bore of the part ensuring proper fit. Often times the clamps can be remachined for different size jobs.
One of the benefits of these low profile clamps is holding many lathe parts, for secondary machining, on one compact set up. They are quickly tightened with a hex key, torque driver or can be mated to hydraulic pull cylinders for automation.
