Mechanical Clamping Nut
Hilma's new mechanical clamping nut is easy to retrofit and provides high clamping force with low torque in small spaces, for clamping and locking of dies on stamping press beds and rams.
With temperature resistance up to 300°F, this clamping nut offers easy clamping and unclamping by hand, and high safety due to a 360° visible clamping force display . Get hydraulic-free and maintenance-free clamping, with high adaptability to varying heights of clamping edges and tolerances due to the nut's through-hole thread.

Clamping Nut: Hydraulic-Mechanical
Hilma's hydraulic-mechanical clamping nut is designed especially for clamping dies on rolling bolsters, press beds and slides. It is useful on machine tool beds when the available space is limited and maximum clamping force is required, or when a hydraulic unit or hoses to clamps is unavailable or not practical.
The clamping nut provides high clamping forces with minimal torque. The t-bolt extends through the clamping nut, and the part is very adaptable to different clamping heights and tolerances. Suitable for retrofitting, the clamping nut provides easy manual clamping and unclamping.
The part comes in three sizes, with clamping forces ranging from 13,400 to 33,700 lbs. Safety features include a built-in preload indicator.
Hydraulic Roller Bars
These hydraulic roller bars from Hilma are used in pairs or sets to lift the die and provide a roller surface to easily roll the die in and out during the die change process. For use in standard 1-1/16 inch or ASA T-slots, the bar's hydraulically operated supporting rollers allow easy movement in line with the bar.
Rollers can be rotated for front to back or left to right movement. Maximum operating pressure is 1,740 psi. Available in 4 lengths, the roller bars are in stock and ready to ship.
Rollblocks for Stamping Presses Fit Variety of Needs
A variety of die lifters are available from Hilma Div. of Carr Lane Roemheld for easy, safe movement of dies on stamping presses.
Variations include hydraulic or mechanical, roller or ball-type lifters, in line or transverse, cartridge inserts or rollblock bar, and standard or high temp die lifters, with four metric sizes and two ASA sizes.
Consult with Hilma's engineering staff to determine the best option for your presses and your needs. For further information contact the HILMA Division of Carr Lane Roemheld Mfg. Co., e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rollblocks Offer Protection From Roller Overload Conditions
Roller Hydraulic Rollblocks from Hilma utilize a piston-roller package which provides both independent roller actuation and protection against potential overloading of rollers on stamping presses.
Rollblocks are available with various roller spacing, allowing customized and cost effective solutions for heavy or light load applications. The units are also available for in-line or transverse applications.
New Compact Power Unit
This new electrically driven high-pressure hydraulic power unit from Hilma Div. of Carr Lane Roemheld is ideal for small and midsize die clamping and lifting systems. The modular unit has a compact, light-weight design which is ready for installation, complete with motor, pump, oil reservoir, valve configuration as needed, pressure gauge, pressure switches, and electrical system. Suitable for both single-acting and double-acting cylinders, the unit's zero leak, directional valves maintain clamping pressure in case of power failure, and the highly reliable radial piston pump ensures long service life. Maximum operating pressure is 5800 psi.
Magnetic Clamp Systems Offer Safe and Fast Mold Change
Magnetic mold clamping systems are available from Hilma, well known for hydraulic clamping systems.
The new long pole technology uses double magnets to provide up to 20% more clamping force over square pole technology. The flexible systems offer quick change of different size molds in a single minute exchange time. Systems are available for plastic, M-TECS 130 (max. 266°F) and for rubber, M-TECS 210 (max. 410°F) injection and compression mold applications.
Electrical power is required for only two seconds to unclamp. Permanent magnets mean clamp capacity is not affected by any power loss. An intelligent safety system is utilized, where a mold clamp sensor, temperature probe, and light signals provide additional safety features.
Hilma Div. of Carr Lane Roemheld is now offering these systems by Rivi Magnetics, in addition to Hilmas well-known hydraulic mold clamps.
Modular Rotor Locks
Secure Large Wind Turbines During Maintenance
Hilma introduces rotor locks for large wind turbines to safely enable maintenance work. The modular cylinders are available in electromechnical or hydraulic versions.
These compact, low-maintenance cylinders are innovative and cost-efficient, with optional lateral lock mechanism or adjustable position monitoring.
