Engineering Firm Aims to Improve the Image of the Humble Clamp

Posted: Updated:

Toggle clamps though useful are deemed not that exciting, but their uses can be! Sandfield Engineering manufacturer clamps for a multitude of uses, many of these are exciting and worthwhile, such as protecting the environment. Don’t underestimate the potential use of a humble clamp.

Toggle clamps are already well known as an essential part of the manufacturing industry, yet are generally thought of as being useful, but not terribly exciting. Engineer Dawn Tebbett is aiming to change that, by demonstrating their potential in ways beyond engineering…even protecting the environment.

As Dawn explains, “Clamps can be easily modified and adapted for many uses beyond the obvious ones. Throughout my career I’ve manufactured clamps for a huge variety of uses, from military vehicles to walk-in baths. We’ve even done work on husky sleds. But perhaps the most satisfying work we’ve done is developing clamps that operate the locking elements in anti-pollution valves to protect the environment from chemical spillage. We’ve done similar work in an industrial environment, including work for oil refineries and water extraction sites, but it’s tremendously satisfying knowing our products are making a genuine difference like this.”

It may sound strange getting excited about clamps, but with the variety of different models now available, as well as the possibility of having specialised units manufactured, Dawn is confident that their full potential will soon be realised. She continues.”The potential for using clamps in a variety of engineering (and non-engineering) situations is so frequently underestimated that I’ve actually written a booklet, ‘Taking the Stress out of Clamping’, to explain the topic in detail.”

This informative booklet can be obtained for free through the Sandfield Engineering website.

Founded in 1965 by Ray Tebbett, Sandfield Engineering has sold millions of clamps across a variety of industries. Committed to providing products of excellent quality, Sandfield Engineering works to constantly offer new, innovative concepts that work in areas other engineering firms would never even consider.
