DESCRIPTION 1. Please refer to drawing 825L and 825LPD. 2. The Model 825 and 825L are adjustable rocker clamps with the piston, Item 5, located at the rear of the clamp and pushing downward on a support plate, Item 15. 3. The mechanical locking ring, Item 6 (825L only), is threaded on the piston, and when screwed tightly against Body, Item 1, retains clamping force when hydraulic pressure is shut off. Model 825 are non-locking and require hydraulic pressure to be maintained at all times. 4. The clamp height adjustment knob, Item 9, is located on top of the clamp and is threaded on the Stud/T-nut Assembly, Item 10. 5. A compression spring, Item 13, located at the front of the clamp pushes against the support plate and keeps the clamp body, Item 1, elevated to the position set by the height adjustment knob. 6. When the height adjustment knob is turned clockwise, the front of the clamp moves downward. 7. When the height adjustment knob is turned counter clockwise, the front of the clamp is elevated until the full upward stroke is achieved. 8. At the full upward position, the stud must remain fully engaged in the height adjustment knob.

Note: When the clamp is adjusted in the full upward position, do not turn the knob any further unless the clamp is being disassembled.

INSTALLATION 1. Make sure that the T-Nut is sized correctly for the bolster T-slot and ram T-slot. 2. Make sure that the clamping height (stud length and spacing plate) is correct for the T-slot neck height . 3. To insert the clamp, compress the compression spring, Item 13, by squeezing the support plate against the clamp body. and insert clamp into the T-slot. 4. Connect hydraulic hose.

OPERATION - DIE EXCHANGE SEQUENCE Read the following procedure keeping in mind your company’s specific die exchange procedures. Then integrate the following steps to meet your specific requirements.

Note: For Locking (825L) clamps, hydraulics will need to be reconnected to reclamp, unlock, and release the clamps. PLEASE REFER TO DRAWING 825L AND 825LPD WHEN FOLLOWING THE SEQUENCE BELOW: 1. Jog ram to bottom of stroke and prepare for die removal. 2. For locked hydra-mechanical clamps (825L), connect hydraulics and apply 5000 psi hydraulic pressure to clamps. Press booster button (HM) to boost pressure.

Note: For locked clamps, the pressure used to release the clamps must be equal to or greater than the pressure used to actuate the clamps. 3. For locked clamps (825L), turn Locking Ring, Item #6, away from clamp body. 4. Release hydraulic pressure to unclamp die. 5. Move clamps away from die. 6. Jog ram to full up stroke. 7. Remove die. 8. Place next die on bolster. 9. Make required shut height adjustment and jog ram to bottom of stroke. 10. Move clamps to die and make any required clamping height adjustment using Adjusting Nut, Item 9.

CAUTIONS: • Clamping point must touch die and be engaged fully - at least 1/2” • Limit clamping range as explained on DWG 825L – Power Strap Clamp. • The clamp must be perpendicular to or not more than 30˚ left or right of perpendicular to the die. • The stud, Item 10, must be visible above the surface of the Adjusting Nut, Item 9. 11. Apply 5,000 psi hydraulic pressure to bolster mounted clamps then to ram mounted clamps. 12. For Locking Clamps (825L), set Locking Ring, Item 6, by manually turning it on Piston, Item 5, until the Locking Ring is firmly in contact with clamp body. 13. For Locking Clamps (825L) only, release hydraulic pressure. 14. Examine all clamps for proper position and confirm that all clamps are engaged by attempting to move them manually.

pfa-inc.com 15. Commence stamping when ready.

RC-825+825L-QDC | ROCKER CLAMP | PAGE 8


MAINTENANCE 1. Periodically check hoses for signs of wear. 2. Replace hoses if necessary. 3. Examine clamps for damage. 4. Check mechanical locking rings to make sure that they turn easily. 5. Chase any damaged threads if necessary. 6. Check for hydraulic leaks. Tighten fittings or replace hoses as necessary. 7. Change seals as needed. See enclosed for seal replacement procedures. 8. If a pipe thread fitting is removed, apply new thread tape before reassembling fitting.

SEAL REPLACEMENT PROCEDURE CAUTION: WEAR SAFETY GLASSES PLEASE REFER TO DRAWING 825LPD AND DO THE FOLLOWING: 1. Unscrew height adjustment knob, Item 9 from stud assembly to remove Support Plate, on older models the Spring and Guide will come free of the assembly. 2. Remove Retaining Ring, Item 18, and Shim, Item 19, unscrew mechanical Locking Ring, Item 6. 3. Remove Swivel Joint, Item 11, from Cylinder Cap, Item 2 and disassemble. 4. To disassemble Cylinder Cap, Item 2 from Body, Item 1 remove, SHC Screws, Item 20 (7 places). 5. Remove Piston, Item 5, from Cylinder Cap by pulling on threaded shaft of Piston.

Note: The Locking Knob can be threaded onto the Piston and used as an aid to remove the piston. Note: Ensure all parts have been cleaned prior to assembly. Apply Magnalube-G to O’Rings, Backup Rings and all moving parts prior to assembly. 6. Install O’Rings and Backup Rings onto Piston and Swivel Joint per drawing.

Note: Ensure that the Backup Rings are on the correct side of the O’Rings. 7. Be careful when installing Piston into the Cylinder Cap so as not to damage O’Ring and Backup Ring. 8. Install new Spring, Item 14 and assemble Cap to Body and retain with new screws, Item 20 (7 places). Torque screws to 50 in lbs.

Note: The earlier style clamps with a pipe plug in the back of the body require an O’Ring between the Body and Cap. 9. Screw Locking Ring onto Piston Shaft and install Shim, Item 19 and Item 18, Retaining Ring. 10. Assemble Swivel Joint, Item 11, to Cylinder Cap and Torque to 150 in. lbs. 11. Assemble Spring, Guide and Support Plate. Insert the Stud Assembly through the Support Plate and the Body and Screw Adjustment Knob onto the Stud. 12. Install in T-slot and using a clamp height block to simulate the die clamping plate, carefully apply 5000 psi. Check for leaks and
