Features

 

Manual Version

More Efficient Than Conventional Method-

As the handle is turned down, the locking block is pushed toward the shaft for clamping. When the handle is released, the flat spring allows the locking block to return back to the original position.

Feature 1. Simple Handle Operation Without Any Tools

cc

Simple vertical handle motion is perfect for applications where position adjustments are often made.

For locking, the handle is moved down as directed by the arrow mark on the side. For releasing, the handle is moved up.

 

cc

Set screws and adjustable handles are NOT needed. No tools are needed for handle operation!

 

Feature 2. Compact-Designed & Space-Saving

cc

Imao Method
No space is needed for the handle to swing.

 

cc

Conventional Method
Some space is necessary for the handle to swing.

 

cc

Compact size for installation even in small space. Proper Shaft Diameter(mm) : 10 12 14 15 16 20.

 

Feature 3. Different Mounting Capability

cc

Both front and back faces can be used for mounting. The tapped holes on the 2 sides allows for versatile mounting.

 

 

Application Examples

cc

Pneumatic Version

cc

Unclamping by air pressure. Clamping by spring pressure.

Supplying air compresses the spring to get the shaft unlocked. Releasing the air locks the shaft.

Feature 1. Simultaneous Multi-Clamping Capability

Connecting air plumbing to multiple quick shaft-locking clamps installed allows clamping/unclamping in one operation. Perfect for use on machines where many clamping or unclamping cycles are run, or for multi-clamping applications.

Feature 2. Remote-Operation Capability

With air supply, remote operation can be done or installation is possible at places out of reach. Can be also installed at invisible places like the backside of machines, for maintenance of machines' appearance.

cc

 

Feature 3. Positive Clamping

The mechanism of spring-pressure clamping and air-pressure unclamping prevents any decrease of shaft-locking force. With clamping automization, any operator can do uniform clamping.

Feature 4. Space-Saving

No need for a larger installation space than the body size (no handle-operating space needed).
