Cascade's Latest Damage Reduction Brings HFC™ to Carton Clamps

Cascade J-Series Carton Clamp

Whatever kind of product you might be handling, there is always the drive to be more efficient: load faster, carry more, and deliver on time. To meet these demands, it’s also important to deliver product intact and reduce the risk of product damage during handling. In addition to a full range of material handling solutions, Cascade Corporation provides a suite of damage reduction systems and accessories to increase operator efficiency and the success rate for delivering product damage free.

Cascade is pleased to introduce the latest addition to damage reduction: Hydraulic Force Control for Carton Clamps. Hydraulic Force Control, or HFC™, is one of Cascade’s most popular damage reduction accessories because of its ability to minimize product damage and improve efficiency without any additional driver input. HFC™ senses the hydraulic pressure necessary to lift a load and adjusts clamping pressure proportional to the load weight, reducing the risk of under- or over-clamping the load, which can lead to damage.
