Hydraulic Workholding is high in fixturing cost and requires cumbersome maintenance, manual workholding is low in setup efficiency and requires much time for part loading/unloading.
One-Touch Clamps are handle-operated clamps developed on the basis of these issues that end customers face. Workholding with One-Touch Clamps are much better in setup efficiencythan conventional manual worholding and much inexpensive than hydraulic workholding.
