This section provides an overview for one-touch clamps as well as their applications and principles. Also, please take a look at the list of 5 one-touch clamp manufacturers and their company rankings.

A one-touch clamp is a tool-less clamp that can be easily clamped and unclamped by operating a lever.
Not only does it reduce the time required for clamping, but it also eliminates the need for tool management, as wrenches, and other tools are not used, contributing to improved productivity as well as workability.
Compared to automated methods using hydraulic or pneumatic clamps, this method significantly reduces production costs and reduces the burden of daily management and maintenance for oil leaks and other problems.
One-touch clamps are often used when frequently changing or clamping workpieces.
For example, they are used when clamping a workpiece to be machined or when the workpiece is to be held in place with one hand. It is used when you do not want the workpiece to move during machining in the machining center and you want to hold it firmly. It is also used when you want to press a workpiece against a positioning pin in a specific direction for positioning.
They are also used to secure workpieces in tight spaces where it is difficult for tools to enter.
The workpiece can be easily secured with a constant force by simply rotating the lever without the need for tools.
The workpiece can be held in place with one hand while being secured with the other, stabilizing the workpiece.
There is no risk of tampering with the tap, even if the holding and releasing are repeated with somewhat strong force.
There are "downward push type" that holds from the top down, "sideways push type" that holds laterally, "retract type" that pulls downward, and "push type" that pushes out the shaft, among which various variations are available in the direction of lever rotation, clamping direction, and clamping force.
Levers that allow torque adjustment are also available as options, etc., to suppress variation in clamping force by the operator and clamp with a constant force.
The clamping force can be scaled down considerably compared to hydraulic or pneumatic clamping, which can be automated, making it suitable for work in confined spaces. It is a clamp that strikes a good balance between workability and cost, right between tool-operated work and automation.
