The Numatics Series SC swing clamps combine linear and rotary motions.
A specially machined spline internal to the piston rod develops the combined motions. When the clamp is pressurized to extend, it moves linearly, removing the tooling from the clamped surface to avoid damage. After completing the linear travel, rotation occurs swinging the clamp arm away from the work-holding area. The Numatics Series SC is designed for winemaking, analytical and diagnostic equipment, automotive, biofuels, and bottling applications.
