What is a rack clamp?
|A rack clamp is specifically designed for metalworking. It is a strong and durable type of clamp, capable of withstanding the pressures of both DIY and industrial use.|
|It can be used for all types of metalworking, including metal fabrication, welding, machining, moulding, pattern making and die holding.|
There are different models available which are designed with various capabilities, ranging from standard-duty up to heavy-duty.
There are also long-reach versions which have a greater length for clamping workpieces which are extremely long or wide.
|It is a multi-purpose type of clamp and can be used to clamp metals and other materials, such as plastic and fibreglass.|
A rack clamp has two jaws which work together to hold a workpiece still.
On some models, the frame extends into a J shape which makes up the fixed jaw. This is a standard rack clamp.
|However, on other models, two moveable jaws can be placed on a serrated bar and adjusted into different positions. This type can be referred to as a bar rack clamp.|
|Parts of various shapes and sizes can be purchased separately then mixed and matched in order to create the ideal clamp for the workpiece in hand. This is both a versatile and cost-friendly way of using rack clamps for a variety of different objects and purposes.|
