"We have been using All World’s SUT ClampMax and Eco-Rich systems for a few years now. The units have proved to be exceptionally easy to install and have had little to no problems with warranty type issues. Any issues we have had have been dealt with immediately by the All World staff. The SUT ClampMax units have been most of our purchases since our customers prefer 1000-3000psi range of setting, however, we still have many customers who prefer the 5,000 psi units. We have purchased over 100+ units with all kinds of different option content including PLC, Airblast, Air confirmation, multiple pressure settings, multiple flow settings, multiple valve stacks, etc. with all sorts of combinations thereof."

Our ClampMAX®-1 system is
specifically made for workholding applications requiring pressures at or below
1,000 psi. This system offers a uniquely compact footprint, which reduced the
overall real-estate burden on your production floor. Don't let its size
fool you, these units can handle some of the very largest multi-clamp
applications with ease and efficiency.
With all of our ClampMAX®
systems, we offer application-specific control valve arrangements. In most
cases, these allow for up to 6 valves to be mounted directly atop as well as
either side, back, or front of the unit configurations. External mounting options are also
available upon request.
Additional control features can be arranged specific to each
valve on the manifold, in other words, each valve station can be different if
the application requires it. As an added benefit, all units come standard with
the protection of 10-micron quick spin-on return filters.
Our use of IFM Efector’s electrical connections make for clean wiring and simplified troubleshooting. All valves, sensors, and unit alarms are discretely wired utilizing M12 connectors and IFM Efector’s patented I/O Hub.
This provides the opportunity for a single, cleanly labeled trunk line and eliminates the need for additional terminal strips and wires to complete setup (please note that an additional I/O hub may be required for higher valve count configurations).
Our ClampMAX®-5 system is very
similar to the ClampMAX®-1 system in many respects, but the real technology is
located within the valve stacks. With the ability to offer either in-line or
valve-stack type hydraulic boosters, a higher level of safety is achieved. With
this type of system, high line pressure is isolated to a single line, providing
it only where needed: at the "A" line directly to the clamp; no more
need for an entire high-pressure system. This leads to less wear and tear on
the control valves and their components. It also creates a much safer working
environment for your maintenance personnel and machine operators. Our in-stack
boosters are designed specifically for All World and feature overpressure
controls which are not commonly available with other boosters found in the
With ClampMAX®-5, we can also
offer our exclusive “Fast-Flow” option, which brings a two-stage pressure and
flow effect to the system. Stage one provides a high flow rate at a lower
pressure reducing clamp cycle times. At stage two, the booster takes over
providing an increased pressure at a lower, accurately-controlled flow for
safely and securely setting the clamp.
Just as with our other two models, the ClampMAX®-5 system comes outfitted with a quick spin-on return filter. However, for added system protection, we have included a high-pressure 10-micron filter located between the pump and manifold. This filter greatly increases the cleanliness of oil flowing through the system and ensures optimal performance for years to come. This system also offers all the same quality accessories as our other ClampMAX® models.
To further enhance the capabilities and versatility of our systems, All World also offers PLC control packages with an optional HMI as an interfacing option. Our use of logic devices for externally controlling the ClampMAX® system eliminates the need to go back into the machines control and software to perform time-consuming and costly modifications. With our PLC packages, we can interface directly to your machinery through various communication configurations. This includes relay communications as well as Modbus, DeviceNet, Ethernet IP, and several other fieldbus protocols commonly found in newer machine and robotic integrations.Our HMI offering is quite flexible and can be suited for those more unique applications, such as test stand operations and other various operator-controlled type functions. Standard features include overall system monitoring, diagnostics, messaging, and manual operations as well as on-board manuals and documentation.
For those applications requiring a manual type interface, we offer Banner’s Two-Hand Touch and safety relays. This system ensures the operator’s hands are free from the workholding fixture while clamping/unclamping is in operation. All the features highlighted above are available with each of our ClampMAX® models and can be custom tailored to suit your specific application.
Part Presence Detection Systems
Air gap sensors are used to confirm the workpiece seating and clamping contacts. Providing high stability, we can accommodate fluctuations in supply pressure while maintaining sensitivity. The air pressurized into port P passes through orifice R1 and R2 of the air bridge circuit, then flows to the nozzles on the comparison side and on the detection side. When the detection side nozzle clearance becomes smaller than the clearance set in the comparison side nozzle, a back-pressure reverses and presses up the diaphragm.
This activates the proximity switch and generates an electric signal. Minimal air consumption is required and can be used with a working pressure of 0.03 MPa. An optional lockable enclosure ensures settings will not be changed and provides a degree of protection equivalent to IP67.
Our knowledgeable engineering staff can customize any of these systems to handle your most advanced applications.
