About Destaco

Destaco offers a wide range of products like manual clamps, pneumatic clamps, clamp accessories and many more. The brand's straight line action clamps are designed to hold a workpiece by pushing it towards a surface. Destaco 603 Series straight line action clamps are ideal for use as both push & pull clamps as they can be locked in both extended and retracted positions. Destaco 604 Series straight line action clamps on the other hand, feature adaptable and compact design due to their threaded body that provide a through hole mounting.
The brand also manufactures pull action latch clamps featuring handles to place a clamping pull bar or hook around an opposing workpiece latch that is horizontally or vertically oriented to the clamp base. These clamps provide a powerful closing force and a thumb control lever for positive holding and convenient single handed operation. They are generally offered in fixed latch, U hook (horizontal and vertical) and J hook type designs. Destaco 323 Series pull action latch clamps are equipped with a horizontal U hook for pulling workpieces that are parallel to the clamp base.

Destaco clamps cross-reference with Bessey & Grainger clamps. Some of the Destaco clamp accessories / tools also cross-reference with Miller Fluid Power, Speedaire, Vestil, Honeywell, Johnson Controls & Siemens clamp accessories. So, if you're looking for a competitor clamp, tool or accessories that are either out of stock or obsolete, Raptor Supplies can help.

Which lubricant is recommended for use with Destaco clamps for their maintenance?

A coupling grease like Mobil XTC should be used when dealing with Destaco mechanical clamps, while the Magnalube G grease is great for use with pneumatic cylinder seals.

Are Destaco clamps rust resistant?

Yes, Destaco carbon steel clamps are zinc plated to withstand & minimise wear & tear due to harsh industrial environments. Destaco also supplies stainless steel clamps for applications requiring clamping in outdoor conditions.

What is the difference between a vertical & horizontal toggle clamp?

The difference between a vertical & horizontal toggle clamp lies in the locking position of the clamp handle. A vertical clamp handle is oriented vertically or perpendicular to the base when in the locked position, whereas a horizontal toggle clamp is positioned horizontally or parallel to the base.

How do latch clamps work?

Destaco pull action latch clamps depend on a handle for operating the tool, a clamping arm for contact point between the work item & clamp and a base for attaching the clamp to the surface. Once the simple linkage system of the clamp is put in the over-centre position, the handle is pulled horizontally for creating force parallel to the base and squeeze-holding the work items.

What is the difference between flat tip bonded spindles and swivel foot spindles?

Destaco flat tip bonded spindles reduce marking on fragile or polished surfaces while swivel foot spindles are used where a large area needs to be clamped.

What does holding capacity mean in terms of clamps?

The term "holding force or capacity" indicates the ideal strength of the clamp for holding down the equipment, workpieces or sheet metal on the assembly line or during other industrial applications.
