Type
   Type       
   Your choices are...         
   Cam Clamp       Cam clamps have an eccentric cam that locks against the side of the workpiece by tightening a screw. 
   Cylinder Clamp       Cylinder clamps use a cylinder to apply force above or below a workpiece. The cylinder provides the moving action to secure the part between the cylinder head and a mechanical stop. 
   Hook / Swing Clamp       Swing clamps are used to secure a jig or fixture. The jaw swings out and away from the clamped part to achieve clearance for part removal. Hook clamps are a type of swing clamp. 
   Pull Clamp       Pull clamps have a clamping pin or screw that is inserted through a hole in the workpiece into a hole on the pull clamp. When the clamp is engaged, the clamping pin is pulled down and the workpiece is clamped into place. Pull clamps may be manually-actuated (by means of a lever) or hydraulically-actuated.  
   Push Clamp       Push clamps have a piston or jaw that pushes and clamps against the workpiece when the clamp is actuated. 
   Retracting Clamp       Retracting clamps have a retractable clamping arm for fast part loading and unloading. 
   Rocker Clamp       Rocker clamps have a single jaw that rotates (or rocks) around a pivot point to apply clamping action. Rocker clamps are ideal for quick-change clamping on dies, molds, and fixture plates where a standard-height subplate is employed. 
   Side / Edge Clamp       Side clamps or edge clamps have a moving jaw that, when actuated, clamps against the side of a workpiece. 
   Toe Clamp       Toe clamps are low-profile clamps that butt up to the side of a workpiece. As they are tightened, a wedge moves the jaw downward and forward to provide a positive force against the side of the workpiece. 
   Specialty / Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary machining clamp sets.

   Clamp Straps       
   Your choices are...         
   Clamp Strap Assembly       Clamp strap assemblies may consist of clamp straps, screws, springs, nuts, and step blocks. 
   Strap Only       The product is a clamp strap only; other components and accessories may be required. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Strap Type      Strap clamps or setup clamps are extremely strong, slip-resistant, and often made of forged steel. They are often used to hold down dies and fixtures on planers, punch presses, milling machines, boring mills, and drill presses.
   Your choices are...         
   Tapped / Tapped Heel Clamp       Tapped clamps or tapped-heel clamps have a threaded hole on one end of the clamp for jacking or adjusting the clamp-loading.  Plain clamps and gooseneck clamps may have a tapped hole. 
   Forged Clamp       Forged clamps are made by forging, a process in which metal is shaped by pressing, pounding, or squeezing under very high pressure to form parts.  
   Finger Tip  / Nose Clamp       Finger tip clamps or nose clamps have a cylindrical "finger" or pin that comes in contact with the held part. The cylindrical surface reduces surface contact with the part. 
   Forked / U-Clamp       Forked clamps or U-clamps are U-shaped devices. 
   Gooseneck Clamp       Gooseneck clamps have a step for holding the workpiece or fixture in order to minimize surface contact.  
   Plain / Taper Nose Clamp       Plain clamps or taper nose clamps have a simple, tapered geometry on either side of the slot. 
   Step Clamp       Step clamps are serrated on one end to mate with serrations via a step block. This allows for easy height adjustments. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary strap clamps. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Actuation:       
   Your choices are...         
   Electric       Electric clamps provide quick, automated clamping. 
   Hydraulic       Hydraulic clamping provides smooth clamping action for improved life and quality. The speed of loading and unloading is also increased. Often, cylinders or swing clamps are used in basic hydraulic clamping systems.  
   Manual       Manual clamps use some kind of mechanical advantage to secure the workpiece. These clamps include vises, strap clamps, edge clamps, and toggle clamps. Manual clamping is operator-dependent, and difficult to automate in unmanned systems. 
   Permanent Magnet       The clamp is actuated by a permanent magnet. 
   Pneumatic       Pneumatic clamps offer smooth, quick, automated, and hands-free clamping. 
   Other       Other unlisted or specialty clamping actuation methods. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Clamping Mechanism       
   Your choices are...         
   Lever       The clamp uses a lever to generate the clamping force. 
   Ratchet       The clamp uses a ratchet system to generate the clamping force. 
   Screw       The clamp uses a screw to generate the clamping force. 
   Wedge       The clamp uses a wedge to generate the clamping force. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialty, or proprietary clamping mechanisms. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.

Specifications
   Capacity / Opening       Capacity or opening is the size a clamp is designed to hold.  
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Clamping Width       Clamping width is the width of the clamp or clamp jaws. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Clamping Force       Clamping force or holding force is what a closed arm transmits to the workpiece without deformation when machine forces are applied. When maximum force is reached, the hinged point goes over the dead center, thereby insuring that the action is locked and cannot be released until the handle is returned to its original position. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
