Flexible throat depth

BESSEY TWV clamping elements for welding tables not only have infinitely adjustable throat depth, but are also available in 3 handle variants.

100, 120 mm or 140 mm throat depth

On BESSEY TW clamping elements, you can choose among 3 handle variants and 3 throat-depth variants.

Heavy‐duty, custom design

The TWM28 clamping element has a heat‐resistant special pressure plate with sintered steel insert, which can be pivoted up to 35°. On the TW28GRS gripping arm variant the spindle is located on the outside, which enables – among other things – free access to the work area.

Perfect for railings

Whether the workpiece is round, oval or square, the TWVAD Vario table clamping attachments are ideally suited

Applying the quick clamp

Thanks to the TWA-STC adapter and the appropriate TWX extension, BESSEY toggle clamps with a horizontal base plate can also be rapidly applied to welding tables.

Diagonal and horizontal clamping

The tilting adaptor TW28AV used in conjunction with the extension TW28X allows angled or horizontal clamping in a range from -52deg. to +52deg.

  • Interior fittings
