The IMI Magnetic V-Pad Clamps offer dual pivoting magnetic heads on each piece. Each clamp can hold angles up to 180° with its four magnets – two on the back and one on each pivoting foot. This gives welders plenty of options for holding material in various positions.
These clamps look extremely helpful for repetitive applications since they set up quickly and position easily. The clamps work with flat, angled, and even round stock. Where fixed welding magnets provide common holding angles—these allow for custom positioning in a way other magnets do not.
The IMI Magnetic V-Pad Clamps come in sets of two, and in two different sizes with different holding strengths. The smaller sets, which can be purchased directly from the IMI website, retail for $14.24. You can get ahold of the larger set for $19.98.
What is IMI Saying About These Clamps?
These handy, magnetic v-pad clamps are one of the best tools a welder could have in their arsenal when performing small, light-duty, or intricate work. They’re especially useful for cradling pipe or tubes, as this magnet style lets you rotate the tubing so you can seam weld the pipe or tube ends.Pete Friedrich, Strategic Account Manager, IMI
