Bessey is expanding its extensive range of all-steel screw clamps with an exciting alternative
The new clamp with swivel handle is particularly impressive due to its ergonomic handling and rapid power build-up.
Powerful, fast & comfortable
For example, the new all-steel screw clamp GZ-KG has a special two-component plastic handle that offers further benefits in addition to ergonomic comfort. It can be swivelled by 90°, which provides additional leverage when tightening – and therefore less effort for the user. In addition, the handle can be turned 360° when swivelled. This means that the user can continue to tighten in any situation during the clamping process, as is the case with other competitor models. In addition, clamping forces of up to 5,000N can be achieved much faster. The well thought-out Bessey innovation is also an advantage when the clamping process is tight. This is because the two-component plastic handle can be simply swivelled away in places that are difficult to access.
Proven Bessey all-steel quality
The other components of the new GZ version also stand out with the usual high Bessey quality: original Bessey all-steel screw clamps offer high stability and flexibility at low weight. The fixed clamp forged from a single piece with moulded pressure plate is hardened and galvanised. This allows the special resilient property of the all-steel screw clamp to be achieved. The benefits: for one, this allows the pressure to be perfectly matched to the requirements of the workpiece. On the other hand, all-steel screw clamps are less sensitive to vibrations, because they can be partially absorbed. Therefore, the clamps don't need to be retightened so quickly. As with all other original Bessey all-steel screw clamps, the pressure plate can be changed without tools.
The new all-steel screw clamp with swivel handle is available in five variants with opening widths between 250 and 600mm, each with a 120mm throat depth. For further information on pricing and availability, click here.
