Industrial Magnetics, Inc.’s Magnetic V-Pad Clamps are designed for welders seeking a fast, low-profile, and versatile holding solution for their workpieces.
The V-Pads’ dual, pivoting magnetic-heads can position and hold angles up to 180 degrees. Each V-pad contains four powerful magnets – two on its back, and one on each pivoting foot – giving the welder several options for holding configurations.
Quick to set up and great for repetitive applications, they’re easy to position and work on flat, angled or round stock.
“I think these handy, magnetic V-Pad Clamps are one of the best tools a welder could have in their arsenal when performing small, light-duty, or intricate work,” says Pete Friedrich, IMI’s strategic accounts manager. “They’re especially useful for cradling pipe or tubes, as this magnet style lets you rotate the tubing so you can seam weld the pipe or tube ends.”
V-pads are available in two different sizes and holding strengths and come in sets of two.
