One-Touch Clamps

Features:

While hydraulic workholding is high in fixturing cost and requires cumbersome maintenance, manual workholding is low in setup efficiency and requires much time for part loading/unloading.

One-Touch Clamps are handle-operated clamps developed on the basis of these issues that end customers face. Workholding with One-Touch Clamps are much better in setup efficiencythan conventional manual worholding and much inexpensive than hydraulic workholding.

In Comparison with Hydraulic Workholding,

  • Approx. 1/3 of Fixturing Cost
    Simple construction for slashed fixturing cost and time
    <Hydraulic Workholding>
    Fixture plate : JPY 270,000
    Fixturing components : JPY 300,000
    Assembly cost : JPY 150,000
    Total JPY 720,000
    <Workholding with One-Touch Clamps>
    Fixture plate : JPY 100,000
    Fixturing components : JPY 130,000
    Assembly cost : JPY 20,000
    Total JPY 250,000
  • No plumbing needed.

In Comparison with Conventional Manual Workholding

  • 3 Times Setup Efficiency
    Quick part loading/unloading by operating the handle.
  • No tools needed
    Clamping just by operating the handle.
    Perfect for frequent part loading/unloading. Slashed setup time and increased productivity.

Other Features

  • Positive Clamping
    The spiral-cam mechanism provides secure clamping without loosening due to machining loads and vibrations.
  • Optional Handles
    Adjustable-torque style that allows adjusting clamping force, and plug-in style that can be removed as needed.

Product Lineup

Imap One-Touch Clamps can be used for a wide variety of clamping applications for multiple small parts, die-cast and pig-iron materials, nonferrous metals such as aluminum, zinc, etc., cast iron and steel.

LOW-PROFILE CAM EDGE CLAMPS

Low-Profile Clamping

These clamps were developed to meet increasingly more needs for small and low- profile clamps which allow clamping small and low-profile parts with the lowest risk of tool interference.

These clamps do not come on top of the workpiece to prevent tool interference. Due to small-size body these clamps can be installed in small space, allowing making the most of the machining area.
Unlike the conventional type of low-profile clamps, Imao low-profile clamps have the mechanism to deter the jaw from getting distorted upward, for prevention of part lift.
