Professional craftsmen know what a difference it makes when they are truly able to rely on their tools. This is especially true for clamps, which often have to be put into place quickly to hold together, support or stabilise a project.

 This is exactly what Hultafors' new range of quick clamps and screw clamps are for. "What distinguishes our new clamps is that they are easy to work with, ergonomic and durable. Above all, they provide reliable clamping forces that stand the test of time," says Håkan Carlsson, Product Manager at Hultafors.

Easy to use professional clamps with force that can be relied on.

Quick and handy or extreme clamping force? If you ask professional craftsmen about quick clamps, they usually answer that they must be quick to put into place and have enough clamping force to do the job well.

That is why Hultafors has prioritised compact and ergonomic design and durable materials ahead of maximum clamping force. This ensures that the new QCX and QC Quick Clamps are extremely easy to use and effective, while also providing enough clamping force to work securely.

"Our new QCX Quick Clamp has a neat design and an ergonomic one-handed grip with a 2-step operation, enabling you to work quickly and efficiently and ensuring access even in confined spaces. It is made from sturdy glass-reinforced nylon and has a die-cast steel rail that enables it to withstand tough conditions and maintains the clamping force over time," says Håkan Carlson.

Hultafors is also broadening its range of professional hand tools with a comprehensive series of screw clamps that have been developed according to the same principles as the quick clamps: they must be easy to use, stable and deliver reliable clamping force.

The most powerful clamp is the CM model, which is made from impact resistant malleable castings. It has a grooved rail on both sides to minimise the risk of the leg sliding when the clamp is being attached.

"The PFC Screw Clamp offers the greatest clamping force of up to 700 kg. It has a pivoting handle that can be angled to offer even better force when tightening or loosening the clamp," says Håkan Carlsson.
