Destaco Introduces 82L-3E Series Power Clamps

New design features clamping-arm opening angles that are adjustable up to 105°

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., July 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ – Destaco, part of Dover (NYSE: DOV), today announced the introduction of its new 82L-3E Series Power Clamps, which feature lightweight, enclosed aluminum housing and optimized mechanics that are more precise and significantly longer-lasting than previous power-clamp designs.

“When it comes to flawlessly clamping and positioning workpieces, the new flexible, adjustable and enclosed 82L-3E Series Power Clamps are the perfect choice for users,” said Christian Schubert, Global Product Manager for Power Clamps Research at Destaco. “The full lineup of clamps in the new 82L-3E series fulfill the stringent requirements for use in the sheet-metal processing and automotive industries, which can feature millions of working cycles.”

These clamps were designed to maximize flexibility. In the event of a compressed-air outage during operation, the 82L-3E can be unlocked manually. The 82L-3E’s opening angle can also be quickly adjusted with just one tool. Additional flexibility is provided by an optional hand lever, which can be mounted on the clamp’s left or right side. Multiple mounting surfaces offer increased mounting and installation optionality. The 82L-3E’s modular structure simplifies the procurement of spare parts and reduces storage requirements, with the same clamp arms also available as U, H and lateral versions.

The 82L-3E power clamps are a perfect complement to the 82M-3E models and are available in three versions with a holding-torque range of 75 Nm to 380 Nm, and clamping torques of 25 Nm up to 120 Nm at 5 bar.
