Manufacturing Facilities

The design process at Steel-Smith is the transformation of a need into a product that satisfies these needs. Each of our products go through testing and simulation with the latest CAD - CAM technology & are finally put through actual physical tests & then are added to the product range.

What is a Toggle Clamp?
Toggle clamp is a simple Mechanism which holds instantly. The Toggle Clamps Consist of a handle to operate, a Clamping Arm to Reach the work piece, linkages for multiplying the applied force, and a base for mounting at the workplace on it’s base. The handle is operated which thereby moves the clamping arm to hold the work piece. A required clamping force is achieved and exerted on the work piece. Under this action the Toggle Clamp Holds the work piece firmly and positively.

Holding Capacity:
The holding capacity mentioned for each clamp refers to the maximum force, which the clamp can withstand after being over-centered without damage to the clamp and without the toggle unlocking due to distortion of the clamp.The over-center dimension is carefully chosen in relation to the elasticity of the clamp to maximize clamping force while ensuring that the clamp locks closed even under vibration or intermittent loading.For Hold Down Clamps, holding capacity is measured with the spindle at the farthest end of the clamping arm and will increase as the spindle goes closer to the clamping arm.

Clamping Force:
Clamping Force, the amount of force actually applied to the work piece by closing and locking the clamp, is generally less than the stated holding capacity. Actual clamping force depends on many factors including; spindle position, proper spindle height adjustment, spindle cushioning, work piece material and the clamps mechanical advantage. In most cases, roughly 1/3rd of the stated holding capacity can be applied by hand with medium effort.


Toggle Principals:

Toggle action clamps operate through a linkage system of levers and pivots. The fixed length levers, connected by pivot pins supply the action and clamping force. Toggle action has an over centre lock point which is a fixed stop and linkage. Once in the over centre position, the clamp cannot move or unlock unless the linkage is moved. All types of toggle clamps have same action, just oriented differently.The Toggle Mechanism in a clamp has three functions.
  • To multiply applied load at the handle into a high clamping force to hold the work piece.
  • To create an over - centre lock to prevent the clamp from opening & releasing the work piece until opened by the operator.
  • To rapidly open & close the clamp giving a maximum clearance in which to load & unload the work piece.

Our Products Range

Types Of Toggle Actions:

Steel Smith is a prominent manufacturer and supplier of a wide range of toggle clamps. Our toggle clamps are well known for its features like durability and sturdy construction. We have developed its series of clamps & clamping equipments for infinite applications taking into consideration the different shapes, sizes, holding capacity, operator's position & strength etc. Majority of the Toggle Clamps are part of the following key actions group, which are:

Vertical Hold Down Action : (VTC- Series)These clamps are recognized by their vertical handles, as their name implies. These clamps are manufactured with a holding capacity of up to 3000 kgs. The clamping exhibits a minimum of 90 degree opening angle giving full clearance for loading & unloading of work piece. Clamping arm can be solid bar, U shaped or fixed hole to suit individual requirements. Steel Smith offers a wide selection of toggle clamps from hold down clamps (vertical or horizontal handle) to door closing clamps etc. Steel Smith is the solution for all your clamping needs.

Horizontal Hold Down Action : (H- Series) Low height design is one of the key features of Horizontal Hold-Down clamps. Unlike the handle and the hold-down bar of the vertical clamps, those of the horizontal clamps move in opposite directions. Horizontal hold-down clamps are created with solid or "U" shaped hold-down bars and with various mounting alternatives.

Straight Line Action : (HTC-Series) The straight line action toggle clamps design uses a straight-line or push/pull, Toggle clamping action. The push / pull handle is easy to operate & moves the plungers of the clamp in and out along its axis. Most of these clamps can be locked in two positions, allowing you to use them as either push or pull clamps. These clamps are manufactured in a variety of models to accommodate a wide range of load ratings.(45 kgs - 4,500 kgs).

Pull Action Clamps : (PAH-Series) Pull Action Clamps are perfect for chamber doors, mold closures, access doors. They feature a handle that can be moved to place the clamping pull bar around the opposing latch and pressed down to reach the locked position. Pull action clamps are convenient for operation and offer a powerful closing force. These clamps are manufactured with holding capacities from 150kgs to 3000kgs. The threaded "hook" or "U-bolt" type bars present an adjustment attribute.

Squeeze Action Clamps : (TP-Series) Squeeze Action Clamps are also identified as portable clamps. Squeeze Action Toggle Clamps hold parts with a pinching or squeezing action flanked by two clamping jaws. The jaws of the squeeze action clamps are locked mechanically when closing, as one or both handles are squeezed against the central position. All forged models are heat-treated alloy steel, machined to close tolerances. Squeeze Action clamps provide quick and flexible clamping.

Horizontal toggle clamps Toggle clamps are employed for temporary clamping which can be employed and released easily through the motion of a handle, lever, or pneumatic swift. The advanced clamping force of Horizontal toggle clamps makes it ideal for holding materials while welding and drilling.
