A toggle clamp is a versatile workholding product used to hold a stationary workpiece in a locked position. This is especially useful for injection molding, production lines, welding applications, and more.
Toggle clamps are quick-action clamping tools that operate using an over-center locking principle known as a “toggle action.” Utilizing a system of levers and pivots, the clamping handle moves a linkage to its center position and the clamping arm meets the center to hold the fixture or workpiece in a locked position.
Examples of how to use toggle clamps include positioning machine tools or holding molds together, but there are a variety of other workholding applications for your requirements.
