Ideal for the welding, automotive, agriculture, and transportation industries, the 5000 series is equipped with ergonomic safety grips and forged clamping bars for higher strength. The clamps include:
- Superior design to withstand harsh manufacturing environments in a wide range of heavy-duty applications
- Hardened steel bushings
- Non-rotating pivot pins for longer tool life
- Versatile mounting with weld-on or bolt-on mounting bases
