General Information

The following sections contain general information about the product.

The BTM TPCA Series of clamps are high-quality, yet low-cost solutions for your clamping needs. These clamps are designed to perform in welding environments, and with patented TriLok technology, they are designed to stay clamped even if air pressure is lost. Access to manually unlock the clamp linkage is provided.

Simply put- BTM TPCA clamps were designed to save you money. Interchangeable arms mean one clamp can have left, right, or dual arms- and best of all these can be changed in the field. 0-120° adjustable arm opening means you can reconfigure the arm opening of a single clamp without having to buy a new clamp- all you need is an Allen wrench.

Need more reasons? TPCA-52, 62, and 82 clamps are NAAMS compliant with four mounting locations, each TPCA clamp features top and bottom porting, and one-piece hardcoat aluminum construction. Check out the features list and/or product advantages for more reasons.

TriLok Equipped

BTM's patented Tri-Lok mechanism is a three point lock which remains engaged even if air pressure is lost. In addition to locking, the mechanism also provides accurate arm position and repeatability. Clamps equipped with Tri-Lok are ideal for use in clamping, or as a backup.

The exclusive Tri-Lok mechanism removes all working tolerances from all moving parts to provide a very repeatable (± 15') and rigid closed arm position. This unique arrangement is highly resistant to torque coming from force applied to the clamp arm.

  • Three Point Lock: Remains Locked if Air Pressure is Lost
  • Arm Repeats Position Accurately
  • When used as a Toggle Clamp, the arm is shimmed & locking occurs in the linkage

BTM's patented TriLok Mechanism can be used as a clamp or as a precision backup and eliminates "over-center" Clamps.
