Series PLK Modular Pneumatic Pin Clamps from PHD (Fort Wayne, IN) feature high clamping force on a lightweight body, and are often used as the end effector of a robotic arm. As with the previous design, these clamps are designed with a completely enclosed pin and long life seals that can withstand the dirt and water present in shop air, but now are more versatile as PHD has increased the available pin diameters and now offers three different pin styles. Pin position sensing allows for open or closed sensing with an industry standard AC or DC weld field immune switch mounted in a protected housing. Benefits include:
- A completely enclosed pin.
- A lightweight, compact design.
- A built-in locking system.
According to PHD, Series PLK Pin Clamps are ideal for part clamping applications in weld areas.
