Vac-U-Lift® Hold Down Clamp  -
Clamping force up to 6000 lbs.

The Vac-U-Lift® Hold-Down Clamp with self contained hydraulic ram and pump applies compressive force that can help increase welding production by as much as 150%. Welding of U-brackets and the use of wedges can be eliminated. The Vac-U-Lift® Hold-Down Clamp can significantly reduce time and labor costs on a variety of welding operations, such as welding beams to plate or in the fabrication of tanks, cylinders, and heavy structural sections. It is also an ideal means of raising sagging plate to beam level.
 
The Vac-U-Lift® Hold-Down Clamp is positioned over the members to be welded. The vacuum attachment pads are then activated, creating the holding force. The operator is able to accurately position the
pieces to be welded while the ram holds the pieces tight. A simple vacuum and release valve permits movement of the unit to the next welding point, quickly and easily.  

The power pac operates with normal plant air supply, 2 to 3 cfm at 50 to 60 psi pressure, to generate vacuum power.
