BESSEY TW16AW adapter range
BESSEY expands its workbench range with clamping elements
BESSEY recently expanded its TW16AW adapter range, for use of its clamping elements on all common workbenches, with a new hole system.
The TW16AW19 workbench adapter range has been on the market since 2016 and enables the use of BESSEY clamping elements of the TW16 and TWV16 series on workbenches with a hole diameter of 19 mm (3/4”). BESSEY now provides adapters for three further workbench hole systems for diameters of 20 millimetres, 25.4 millimetres (1”) and 30 millimetres.
If users are still unable to source a suitable size in this expanded range, the locking pin on the adapter can be removed and replaced with a self-made one. No matter which workbench adapter size is selected, all of them can be connected with the suitable BESSEY clamping elements in a few simple steps and then inserted into the workbench without the need for tools.
Matching clamping elements for exact positioning
BESSEY clamping elements of the TW16 series, with a fixed throat depth of 100 millimetres and the TWV16 series, with a variable throat depth of 30 to 150 millimetres, can be used in conjunction with the workbench adapter.
The tools for accurate clamping on workbenches are available in three handle variants including a high-quality two component plastic handle and a T-handle or a lever handle. The model with the lever handle is especially practical for quick clamping.
Thanks to the locking mechanism, the clamping element can be securely fixed with a single movement, thus enabling rapid and controlled clamping. This pays off especially in the processing of long work pieces where many holding points are necessary. Saving time and reducing fatigue are key advantages.
Experience in a nutshell
In the design of solutions for accurate clamping on benches, BESSEY has successfully applied its long experience as a global market leader in clamping tools. Characteristic of all models and handle variants is the sliding arm for elastic, sprung clamping, as well as the annealed profile. Like the spindle, it is processed in tried-and-tested BESSEY quality steel. This guarantees a dimensionally stable and low-torsion clamping tool, which also exhibits an extremely long service life on the bench with daily use.
