Inspection Arsenal Fixturing System Now Includes Heavy Duty Cantilevered Clamp

Sturdy Lever Clamp is ideal for added force and for larger parts

Published: Thursday, November 29, 2018 - 13:00

(Phillips Precision’s Products Division: Boylston, MA) -- Phillips Precision announces its Sturdy Lever Clamp as part of the Inspection Arsenal, the first universal fixturing system providing a complete set of tools for all inspections. 

The heavy-duty Sturdy Lever cantilevered clamp is ideal for added force and for larger parts. The lever tightens with a thumb screw, rather than downward force, which makes this clamp less likely to mar the part. The clamp generates up to 30 pounds of force and can be adjusted to hold at a steep angle if needed. It works on the same post as Phillip Precision’s Trigger-Finger hold-down. The post is steel, and the clamp lever is black-anodized aluminum (thumb-screw included). The Sturdy Lever clamp can be ordered with a ¼–20 or M6 threaded post. It assembles quickly and self-aligns/levels to the correct starting point.
