The outstanding feature of GN 854 latch clamps is their highly robust, sturdy and compact design, allowing their use under demanding conditions, e.g. exposure to high temperatures, dust, spray mist, etc.
The specially designed catch allows the forced loosening of the clamp, by the clamping arm moving the U-bolt latch forward, e.g. for separating mold halves.
Latch clamps with bore (coding 1) are operated with a gear lever handle which is placed into the bored out socket and removed after operation. This saves space and has the added advantage that the gear lever handle is not exposed to adverse ambient conditions, e.g. becoming too hot to operate. The gear lever handle is not included with the clamp.
The catch can also be mounted using either screws or bolts.
If required, clamps and catches are also available as separate parts; for replacement, the bearing bolt is easily dismantled.
