FLUID POWER WORKHOLDING SYSTEMS
DE-STA-CO’s StrongHold Select series is a workholding system of hydraulic and pneumatic products. The products include hydraulic swing clamps, work supports, threaded body cylinders, square body cylinders, pneumatic swing clamps, and accessories. The products work together as part of a complete workholding system, allowing users to secure all of the clamps holding the workpiece from a single power source.0
The system is said to provide significant reductions to set-up time, as operators can clamp an entire fixture from one location. Cost reduction is also achieved through extended cutting tool life, as the rigid hold achieved by power clamping reduces vibration and cutting tool chatter.
