Hydraulic Clamping Systems and Pumps

Kurt's hydraulic clamping systems are designed to speed the part clamping process in machining centers with more accuracy and less effort. Kurt's product line catalog offers a range of swing clamps, accessories and hydraulic pump options for configuring the right workholding system for a single machining center or a multi-pallet cell with multiple machines.

Kurt's single cylinder swing clamps provide 475 lbs. to 6,000 lbs. clamping force with a maximum pressure of 5,000 PSI. Kurt's single cylinder design actuates both the swing and clamping cycle in one continuous automatic motion. No physical effort is needed for the clamping. Directional change of the swing clamp motion is made with a push/pull feature that turns the clamping head left 90° or right 90°.

Available in upper and lower flange and threaded body mounting styles for added flexibility, Kurt swing clamp design features include:

  • Cylinder bodies HRC 38 - 46 hardened tool steel with polished inner surfaces
  • Pistons that are hard chromed and polished for increased wear resistance and smooth piston operation
  • Guide rods with guide slots
  • Pins HRC 38 - 40 heat treated for extra pin strength.

Kurt's KHP5000 hydraulic pump is electrically powered and designed for operation when standard shop air is not easily accessible. The KHP5000 pump can also be installed in CNC shuttle pallet systems as it features a "dump load" capability for when pallets pressure lines are not attached. Also available are models KHP5000PF and KHP5000PH, which are two compact pneumatic pump models for single acting clamping systems. Available in either a foot or hand controlled model, these pumps provide pressure from 500 to 5,000 PSI.
