Hobart Welding Products introduces a new series of heavy-duty welding clamps and fit-up magnets expanding its inventory of welding accessories.
Appleton, WI (PRWEB) September 3, 2008 -- A new line of welding tools and accessories from Hobart Welding Products allows welders to free up their hands for greater control and faster setup. A series of heavy-duty clamps and fit-up magnets vary in strength and function for most welding situations encountered in the shop or garage.
The new line includes:
- 2-Axis Clamp
- Locking Pliers /Welding Clamps
- 360-Degree Swivel Magnet
- Magnetic Ground Clamp
- Quick Release On/Off Magnet
Hobart F-clamps (sliding-arm clamps) are nearly 10 times faster to use than C-clamps and offer stronger, more efficient holding power. Built with the strength of drop forged, heat-treated, nickel/chrome plated bar stock, the F-clamps feature a screw with copper-coating to protect against weld spatter. Hobart F-clamps are available in three grades of clamping pressure and various sizes: Light Duty (500 lbs.), Heavy Duty (1,000 lbs.), and Super Duty (1,250 lbs.)
Hobart's 2-Axis Clamp is an economical solution for a perfect 90-degree fit-up. Ideal for welding square tube, round tube, angle and channel iron, the 2-Axis Clamp features a floating head and rotating spindle screw that adjusts to align and hold work pieces in place.
Locking Pliers / Welding Clamps
Hobart's four new Locking Pliers and Welding Clamps make setup easy. They feature a heavy-duty gnarled head and nickel-chrome plated handles, which are rubberized in black and orange to increase comfort. These tools are rugged, yet simple to adjust and are available in four sizes: 4 in., 6 in., 11 in., and Long-Neck.
Hobart's swivel magnet adjusts to almost any angle to hold metal objects in place while welding. Both 3 in. magnets swivel 360 degrees for accurate placement and pull with 50 lbs. of strength.
Magnetic Ground Clamp
Rated at 500-amps, Hobart's Magnetic Ground Clamp can stick to any weld-able ferrous metal and features an orange rubberized release lever.
Quick Release On/Off Magnets
A simple twist of the knob release on Hobart's Quick Release magnet easily engages or disengages a firm hold on thick steel, making accurate fit-up a snap.
