Abstract

Abstract

The clamping device is operable to fix a specific drilling template (= first component) to a second component to be drilled. The clamping device can be served by one person. By turning a screw of the clamping device a mechanism is operated, poping out or retracting a lever. By further turning the lever shifts toward the component to be clamped and by this features a clamping force between a drilling template and the component. An integrated spring mechanism realises a sliding end, allowing to clamp different sheet metal thicknesses and drilling template stands-off. In addition, an anti-twist protection fixes the clamping device in its orientation.

1. ABSTRACT

The clamping device is operable to fix a specific drilling template (= first component) to a second component to be drilled. The clamping device can be served by one person. By turning a screw of the clamping device a mechanism is operated, poping out or retracting a lever. By further turning the lever shifts toward the component to be clamped and by this features a clamping force between a drilling template and the component. An integrated spring mechanism realises a sliding end, allowing to clamp different sheet metal thicknesses and drilling template stands-off. In addition, an anti-twist protection fixes the clamping device in its orientation.


2. DISCLOSURE

The clamping device can be served by one person. By turning a screw of the clamping device a mechanism is operated, poping out or retracting a lever (see Fig. 1 to 6). By further turning the lever shifts toward the component to be clamped and by this features a clamping force between a drilling template and the component. An integrated spring mechanism realises a sliding end, allowing to clamp different sheet metal thicknesses and drilling template stands-off. In addition, an anti-twist protection fixes the clamping device in its orientation.

The above mentioned clamping device can be operated by only one person. Today's clamping device solutions comprise multiple clamping parts and only allow to clamp two components with one person inserting a first clamping part while another person mounts a...
