Description

Application

Hydraulic swing clamps are used for clamping of workpieces when it is essential to keep the clamping area free of straps and clamping components for unrestricted workpiece loading and unloading.

application

Function

A swing clamp is a pull-type cylinder where a part of the total stroke is used to swing the piston (swing stroke) and the screwed-on clamping arm. The only exception is the series as per data sheet B1.8806 where the swing motion is effected without axial stroke.  

function of the swing clamp

Swing direction

The swing clamps are available with clockwise and counterclockwise swing motion or without swing motion (0°).
"Swing direction clockwise" describes the clockwise rotation of the piston starting from the extended position (off-position). The "swing direction counterclockwise" is accordingly effected by counterclockwise rotation.
Standard swing angles are 45°, 60° and 90°.  

swing direction of the swing clamp

0° version

Use as pure pull-type cylinder with a piston which is secured against torsion and which allows eccentric load as per clamping force diagram.

Versions with overload protection device

In swing clamps with overload protection device the swing mechanism is protected against damages due to a collision of the clamping arm for example with the workpiece. Snapping out of the overload protection device stops the swing motion of the clamping arm. However the complete stroke of the swing clamp will be effected.
If the overload protection device snapped out, the swing clamp has to be moved back to the off-position and the piston with the clamping arm has to be snapped in by hand.

Versions with reinforced or sturdy swing mechanism

The swing clamps without overload protection device and with reinforced or sturdy swing mechanism maintain their angular position of the clamping arm during loading and unloading, even in case of a slight collision with the clamping arm. The reinforced swing mechanism endures a collision of the clamping arm with the workpiece during clamping up to a pressure of 100 bar. Less critical are the weight of the clamping arm or an increased swing speed.

Option - switch rod / accessory - position monitoring

Position monitorings are available as accessory for swing clamps with reinforced swing mechanism. The positions "Unclamped" and "Clamped" are acknowledged. The position monitoring is operated by an "extended rod". This rod protrudes at the bottom of the swing clamp and is hydraulically sealed. It forms one unit together with the helix rod and allows a pneumatic or electrical monitoring of the piston position outside the swarf area.With the pneumatic position monitoring the positions can be controlled by pressure switches or differential pressure switches.In the case of electrical position monitorings the controls are effected by inductive proximity switches.

An alternative control offers the pneumatic position monitoring as per data sheet B1.852. The position "Clamped" is directly controlled at the clamping arm.

Swing clamps with pendulum eye or fork head B1.8802 and B1.8812

The piston end of this swing clamp is designed as pendulum eye or fork head. By means of a double clamping arm 2 workpieces can be clamped at the same time.
For both versions a springy element is required in order to maintain the double clamping arm in the unclamped position in horizontal position.

Pendulum eye

The sturdy pendulum eye can transmit high clamping forces up to a max. operating pressure of 500 bar. The double clamping arm has to be dimensioned according to the load.

Fork head

The fork head allows a max. operating pressure of 160 bar. Advantageous is the fact that relatively simple clamping arms can be manufactured from flat materials.

Swing clamps with piston rod locking B1.8805

The patented piston rod locking is made by friction locking by a separately-controllable double-acting wedge-shaped piston with
self-locking. In the case of a pressure drop or complete pressure reduction, the clamping force will be maintained. The wedge-shaped piston is designed as a self-locking piston so that the swing clamp can be depressurised after clamping. The previously generated clamping force will be maintained.

Swing clamps without swing stroke B1.8806

The swing clamp without swing stroke is a double-acting pull-type cylinder where a part of the piston stroke is used to swing the piston rod without axial stroke.

Clamping

  • The piston rod is rotated together with the clamping arm without axial stroke (swing stroke) in the desired direction.
  • After swinging in the clamping arm above the clamping point, the linear clamping stroke will be effected.

Unclamping

  • For the linear return stroke, the clamping arm is lifted from the clamping point.
  • The piston rod swings the clamping arm without axial stroke back to the off-position.

Option - metallic wiper

In addition to the FKM wiper many double-acting swing clamps can be equipped with a metallic wiper.
The metallic wiper protects the FKM wiper against mechanical damage, e.g. by hot swarf or high coolant pressure.

Materials

piston material: high alloy steel, nitrated or chromium-plated
body material: high alloy steel, nitrated
By nitrating piston and body, wear is reduced and protection against corrosion increased.

Sealing materials

  • NBR = nitrile butadiene rubber trade name e.g. Perbunan operating temperature: -30 to +100 °C
  • FKM = flouro rubber trade name e.g. VITON® operating temperature: -20 to +150 °C

Technology

Seat of clamping arm

For mounting of clamping arms or clamping straps, normally a cone seat is provided at the piston of the swing clamp.
The cone ratio is 1 to 10. This seat is the same for all types of one size.

Maximum operating pressure

For one-sided clamping arms the maximum admissible operating pressure depends on the length of the clamping arm.
These values are indicated in the diagrams on the corresponding data sheets.
When using a double clamping arm or a clamping strap, the complete operating pressure can be applied.

Admissible flow rate

The admissible flow rate has to be kept to avoid overload, increased wear and malfunctions of the swing clamp.
Throttling has to be made in the oil supply line to the swing clamp to rule out a possible pressure intensification.
Use only flow control valves which allow oil return from the swing clamp without any impediments. 
During unclamping the admissible oil flow rate can obtain a higher value, since the piston area is correspondingly bigger.

Unimpeded swing motion

The swing motion must not be impeded and the clamping arm may only contact the workpiece after completion of the swing stroke.

Tolerance of the swing angle

is ±2°, if not otherwise indicated.
For swing clamps with reinforced swing mechanism the tolerance is always ±1°.

Dimension tolerances

Dimensions without tolerance data correspond to the general tolerances in accordance with DIN ISO 2768 -mH.

Fittings

Fittings suitable for the Whitworth G pipe thread correspond to DIN 2353, screwed plug type B according to DIN 3852 sheet 2 (with sealing edge or soft seal).
Important: No additional sealing materials, such as Teflon ribbon, must be used!

Leakage rate

ROEMHELD swing clamps do not leak when static.
During displacement of the piston a residual lubricating film will be tolerated with regard to the life of sealings and guides.
Admissible leakage rates for 1,000 double strokes and hydraulic oil HLP 22 are:

  • up to 32 mm piston diameter: < 0.30 cm³
  • from 40 mm piston diameter: < 0.60 cm³

Bleeding

Air in the oil prolongs the clamping time considerably and leads to function troubles.
Therefore bleeding has to be effected during start up.

Venting of the spring area of single-acting swing clamps


If there is any danger that that aggressive cutting lubricants and coolants penetrate through the sintered metal air filter 
into the cylinder's interior, a vent hose has to be connected and be placed in a protected 
position.
