BESSEY Auto-Adjust Toggle Clamps have changed the way toggle clamps are
constructed with variable range clamping force and the ability to auto-adjust
to variations in workpiece height while maintaining constant clamping force.
Now workpieces of differing heights can be clamped quickly and securely
perfect for small-scale production situations.
BESSEY Auto-Adjust Toggle Clamps make time-consuming manual
adjustments a thing of the past. The clamping force can be optimized to the
demands of a particular workpiece simply by turning a set screw on the
cantilevered joint, for added flexibility!
