PHD’s range of sheet metal clamp products is industry leading in its capability, functionality and quality. They continue to innovate in this area and have just released the new PLK catalogue, covering Series PLK Modular Pin Locating and PLKD Disappearing Pin Locating Clamps. This sheet metal clamp catalog release includes the new -Dx1xx dual switch position sensing option for the Series PLKD Clamps. The dual switch option provides control feedback for all four clamp conditions (pin full extend, finger in/out, clamped, and pin full retract) with an industry standard AC or DC weld field immune switch mounted in a protected housing.
PHD Pin Locating Clamps are designed with a completely enclosed pin and long-life seals that can withstand the dirt and water present in shop air. These units provide high clamping force on a lightweight body and are often used as the end effector of a robotic arm. The combination of design and features makes the PLK and PLKD superior choices for applications requiring pin locating clamps.
Also included in this release is the newly revised sheet metal clamp overview brochure. This brochure provides a clear and concise review of PHD’s Sheet Metal Clamp line that offer low cost of ownership, exceptional flexibility, and are unsurpassed in ruggedness and includes the latest releases of the size PNC66 Number Cruncher and PLK 2/6 design modular pin locating clamps.
