The new range of latch clamps from Elesa, designed with safety release trigger offer easy installation and robust operation of industrial jigs, fixtures and fittings, or for temporary assembly and closure of packing containers. They are suitable for torsioning of covers and frameworks or for applications where high tensions are required with resistance to strong vibrational stresses.
They ensure that a high force and positive release is required to open, so guarding against accidental opening and release of the secured component.
The MTS-S steel and stainless steel heavy duty clamps provide weld-on installation, while their sister MTP-S units simply bolt-on. The companion MTC-S bolt-on over-centre clamps share a similar safety push-button feature - they also come in steel or stainless steel and provide additional operator comfort with a moulded handle in soft red polyurethane.
Opening of these hook type toggle clamps is achieved in each case by operation of the manual release trigger which then permits the lever to be opened.
All the pulling hasps may be length adjusted and locked in position to ensure optimum tension, with closing forces MTS-S + MTP-S up to 40000N. MTC-S up to 7500N.
