Hydraulic Clamping Fundamentals


Do not use single acting swing clamp to push a load in the unclamp or extend direction. The spring is designed to return arm and overcome minimal backpressure only. Never “strike” or “rap” the end of the plunger or arm to adjust position, this can cause damage to the rotating mechanism. Never clamp at end of straight stroke as the end of the piston will seat at the bottom of the clamp. This will result in no force being transmitted to the work piece. HYDRAULIC FLUID / COOLANT COMPATIBILITY Swing Clamps are furnished with AU compound seals as standard. This compound provides excellent service in a wide variety of coolant applications. However, before using swing clamps in synthetic or water-based coolants contact your coolant manufacture or supplier for seal compatibility recommendations.
