Lapeer Manufacturing Company in Michigan was established in 1946 to meet the growing need for flexible fixturing in the post WWII era aerospace industry. Since that time the company has worked tirelessly to support a wide range of industries that require innovative and flexible solutions to a variety of work holding and clamping challenges.
Today toggle clamps can be found in a nearly endless variety of applications across an equally broad range of industries. From basic welding and fabricating to mining and agriculture to quality control and defense it is difficult to find an industry where toggle clamps have not proven their versatility and economy.
The rigorous demands of such a wide variety of customers has driven Lapeer Manufacturing Company to continuously refine and improve our Knu-Vise brand of toggle clamps. With so many challenges brought to the marketplace by the global economy the last thing a customer wants to have to worry about is the performance and reliability of a fundamental component like a toggle clamp.
To achieve that kind of worry-free performance the Knu-Vise line of toggle clamps is manufactured with only the highest quality and time proven materials processed and assembled to exacting specifications. All critical components are heat-treated and each clamp is carefully inspected and tested throughout the manufacturing process to ensure reliability, performance and long life.
