The Elesa range of heavy duty manual latch and toggle clamps in the MTP and MPB series are supplemented with their PPC pneumatic drive units for push-button or automated operation. A particular feature of Elesa heavy duty clamps is their in-built adaptability to suit work-holding, jig closure etc. by virtue of their adjustment and/or weldability for integration into workstation equipment. An aspect greatly facilitated by their ease of disassembly/rebuild which speeds both installation and maintenance so saving money while providing a high quality production solution.

The MTP/MTP-D are hook-style quick-release clamps in steel, offering a linear or right-angled pull from 12,000 to 40,000N closing force, while the MPB vertical toggle clamps provide closure force from 10,000 to 30,000N.

Where manual operation is too slow or perhaps multiple repetitive operations are to be avoided, then the PPC pneumatic clamp is an obvious solution providing up to 20,000N.
