Designed to lift thin-gauge steel plates, stainless steel, iron, timber, and aluminum without marring or damaging the surface
Lifts plates from the horizontal to vertical position and vice versa through 180º
The performance on the leather jaws is notaffected by standing water so the clamp can be used with submerged plasma cutting machines
The LJ clamp is suitable for surface hardness greater than 300 Brinell (32HRc)
Minimum load will not affect the LJ clamps as they do not have teeth for bite. However some load is required to combat friction in the clamp. Extra care must be taken when lifting plates in the lower 20% of their rated capacity. Thin plates are best lifted with the fixed jaw on top when performing a horizontal to vertical lift.
The clamp may not be suitable for lifting highly polished plates where the polish process may leave lubricating compounds
