BESSEY expands its workbench adapter range for the use of clamping elements

BESSEY is expanding its TW16AW adapter range for use of its clamping elements on all common workbenches with a hole system. In addition to the workbench adapter for a hole diameter of 19 mm, adapters for three further hole diameters are now available from BESSEY.

The TW16AW19 workbench adapter has been on the market since 2016. It enables the use of BESSEY clamping elements of the TW16 and TWV16 series on workbenches with a hole diameter of 19 mm (3/4”). BESSEY now also provides adapters for three further workbench hole systems – for diameters of 20 mm, 25.4 mm (1”) and 30 mm.

If you are still not be able to find a suitable size in this expanded range, the locking pin on the adapter can be removed and replaced with a self-made one. No matter which workbench adapter size is selected, all of them can be connected with the suitable BESSEY clamping elements in a few simple steps, and then inserted into the workbench without the need for tools.

Matching clamping elements for exact positioning of the clamps
BESSEY clamping elements of the TW16 series – with a fixed throat depth of 100 mm – and the TWV16 series – with a variable throat depth of 30 to 150 mm – can be used in conjunction with the workbench adapter.

The tools for accurate clamping on workbenches are available in three handle variants: a high-quality 2-component plastic handle, T-handle or a lever handle. The model with the lever handle is especially practical for quick clamping. Thanks to the locking mechanism, the clamping element can be securely fixed with a single movement, thus enabling rapid and controlled clamping. This pays off especially in the processing of long work pieces where many holding points are necessary because saving time and reducing fatigue are key advantages.

Experience in a nutshell
In the design of solutions for accurate clamping on benches, BESSEY has successfully applied its long experience as a global market leader in clamping tools. Characteristic of all models and handle variants is the sliding arm for elastic, sprung clamping, as well as the annealed profile. Like the spindle, it is processed in tried-and-tested BESSEY quality steel. This guarantees a dimensionally stable and low-torsion clamping tool, which also exhibits an extremely long service life on the bench with daily use.

At BESSEY, we have a long tradition of producing such innovative, practical product solutions as this. Since the cold drawn steel plant was founded in Stuttgart in 1889, the Bietigheim-Bissingen based company continues to raise the bar in clamping and cutting technology. Currently offering more than 1,600 products, BESSEY has a specific solution for practically every application. Our focus is on precision and durability, convenience and safety.
To stop improving is to stop being good.” This was the motto of company founder Max Bessey and it remains our guiding principle today –in all that we do and produce. This means that we are constantly developing new products and improving existing ones to make the user's life easier, on the basis of innovative ideas. Such innovations are worthwhile.
