Type
   Type       
   Your choices are...         
   Angle / Corner Clamp       Angle or corner clamps are used to hold workpieces at an angle, while the pieces are being joined or worked on. 
   Bar / F Clamp       A bar clamp, also referred to as an F-clamp or a speed clamp, has two jaws located on a bar. One of the jaws is typically stationary, while the other moves or can be adjusted along the long bar. Bar clamps have a large clamping range. 
   C / G Clamp       "C" clamps, also referred to as "G" clamps, are shaped like the letter "C" or the letter "G" when the screw is included. They may be referred to as carriage clamps. These clamps have a sliding screw for tightening the clamp on the workpiece. They are often available in regular, deep, extra-deep, or heavy-duty pattern. 
   Cantilever Clamp       Cantilever clamps provide a wide opening and have pivoting jaws that provide parallel clamping. The cantilever design eliminates twisting of the clamped part. 
   Chain Clamp       Chain clamps are vise-like clamps that incorporate a chain for clamping irregular or round parts. 
   Parallel Clamp       Parallel clamps have two parallel clamping surfaces. One surface is fixed, while the other is adjusted by turning two screws -- one towards the bottom of the clamp, and a second towards the middle of the clamp. Parallel clamps made of wood are typically used in woodworking applications (also referred to as wooden handscrews), while more precision, hardened steel clamps are used by tool makers and machinists. 
   Pipe Clamp       Pipe clamps are comprised of two clamp jaws used with a length of pipe that is threaded on the ends. One of the clamp jaws is threaded onto one end of the pipe and adjusted with a screw, while the other fits over the pipe and can be moved and locked in place. 
   Spring Clamp       A spring clamp is a spring-actuated clamp with an "A" shape that resembles a large clothes pin. 
   Strap Clamp       Strap clamps (also referred to as web clamps) are used to secure parts that are unusual shapes or that are not parallel to each other together. 
   Toggle Clamp       Toggle clamps are quick-action, hold-down clamps used to keep a work piece stationary. Toggle clamps may be fixed to a bench or fixture, or they may be hand held for holding work pieces together. They operate through a system of levers and pivots.  Actuation of the clamp moves it against the workpiece and the linkage is stretched or compressed. The toggle locks positively by moving the clamp’s center pivot past the centerline of the other pivots, against a stop. Toggle clamps firmly hold the workpiece until the user moves the handle to release the toggle. 
   "V" Block and Clamp       V-blocks, or vee blocks, with clamps are used to accurately hold cylindrical or square parts during gaging or layout applications. Vee blocks and their attached clamping mechanism usually consist of an adjustable screw to clamp against the surface of the part. 
   Vacuum Clamp       Vacuum clamps are used to clamp non-porous materials by forming a vacuum between the clamp and the clamped surface of the part. 
   Weld Clamp       Weld clamps are used to hold workpieces together during welding, soldering, or brazing, usually magnetically. 
   Yoke Clamp       Yoke clamps are similar in construction to C-clamps, but have specially-shaped haws for clamping cylindrical shapes. One jaw of the yoke clamp is fixed while the other is adjusted with a screw. 
   Specialty / Other Clamp       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary clamp. 
   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 offer quick, automated clamping. 
   Hydraulic       Hydraulic clamping offers a smooth clamp action for improved life and quality. The speed of loading and unloading is increased. Cylinders or swing clamps are often used in basic hydraulic clamping systems.  
   Manual       Manual clamps use some kind of mechanical advantage in securing the workpiece. Manual clamps include the ever popular vise, strap clamps, edge clamps, and toggle clamps. Manual clamping is operator dependent and is 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. 
   Vacuum       The clamp uses a vacuum to hold the workpiece. 
   Other       Other unlisted or specialty clamping actuation.

   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 mechanism.

Specifications
   Capacity / Opening       Capacity refers to the size the 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       Width of 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       The clamping force, or holding force, is the force the closed arm transmits to the workpiece, without itself being deformed when machine forces apply. When maximum force is reached, the hinged point goes over the dead center, thereby ensuring the action is locked and cannot be released until such time as 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.
   Plunger Travel (for Push/Pull Clamps Only)       The overall plunger travel for straight line or push/pull clamps only. 
   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.

Materials
   Body Material       
   Your choices are...         
   Aluminum       The clamp body is primarily manufactured from aluminum.  Aluminum is a bluish, silver-white, malleable, ductile, light, trivalent, metallic element that has good electrical and thermal conductivity, high reflectivity, and resistance to oxidation. 
   Copper Alloy       The clamp body is primarily manufactured from a copper alloy, such as brass or bronze. Alloys have significant amounts of intentionally-added alloying elements or constituents. 
   Cast Iron       The clamp body is primarily manufactured from cast iron.  The term "cast iron" refers not to a single material, but to a family of materials whose major constituent is iron, with important trace amounts of carbon and silicon. Cast irons are natural composite materials whose properties are determined by their microstructures - the stable and metastable phases formed during solidification or subsequent heat treatment. The major microstructural constituents of cast irons are: the chemical and morphological forms taken by carbon, and the continuous metal matrix in which the carbon and/or carbide are dispersed. 
   Plastic       Clamp body is primarily manufactured from plastic. Plastics refer to any of numerous organic, synthetic, or processed materials that are mostly thermoplastic or thermosetting polymers of high molecular weight and that can be made into objects, films, or filaments. 
   Stainless Steel       The clamp body is primarily manufactured from stainless steel.  Stainless steel is chemical and corrosion resistant and can have relatively high pressure ratings. 
   Steel       The clamp body is primarily manufactured from steel. Steel is a commercial iron that contains carbon in any amount up to about 1.7 percent as an essential alloying constituent. It is malleable when under suitable conditions, and is distinguished from cast iron by its malleability and lower carbon content. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialty or proprietary material. 
   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.
