A brief history of MasterClamp and "Dynamic Clamping pressure"

MasterClamp was first introduced in 1999 (NY trade show) and has been improved ever since.
Along the years we were testing and experimenting in the area of dynamic-clamping pressure, that means to deliver efficient clamping pressure continuously until the glue dries (about 15-20 minutes). Proper clamping pressure is being distributed evenly throughout the miter cuts  to get good bonding and a strong corner joint. MasterClamp is intuitive, easy to adjust thus enables quality control.
MasterClamp precision and high performance encourage picture framers to get better with joining, learn more and take action to achieve the best results. 

Dynamic Framing Clamp

The term: dynamic-clamping-pressure:  collection of closely related techniques that have been employed to provide effective features to "outsmart" typical problems regarding basic frame-joining and the clamping mechanisms.

MasterClamp 2020 - The improvements:

  1. Clamping pressure Delivers equal pressure throughout the joint (up to 1,000 psi.)
  2. Spring-loaded jaws are constantly tightening the joint.
  3. Angle adjustment - adjust easily to match with the miter-cuts for optimized contact.
  4. Clamps setting - enables framers to work with all type of mouldings.
  5. User friendly - straight forward, fast learning, easy to use, requires minimum force to achieve effective clamping pressure.


2020 special edition
 is available now for purchase. MasterClamp lifetime warranty and refund with no time limit.


Features include:

  • Angle Adjustment - (two wheels mounted onto the right fence) designed to adjust the clamp angle avoids joining gaps thus gets strong bonding.
  • Quick Release - (at the back of the clamp) designed for quick change of the clamp opening to allow for the frame to fit in.
  • Clamp Handle - when turned clockwise create proper clamping pressure to form good bonding and a strong joint. (up to 1,000 psi)
  • Spring Jaws - (front of the clamp) delivers a powerful continues action of  "push and tighten" help to create the very best corner-joints.

The industry standard for framing-clamps delivers a set of professional clamps, newly designed by MasterClamp for 2020 and is packed with new features designed to inspire.
