Title: CLAMPING DEVICE AND MICROTOME HAVING SAME
Abstract:
A clamping device (10) and a microtome (100) having the same, the clamping device (10) includes an operating member(11); a wedge (12) having a first end (123), a second end (121) and a first inclined surface (122) located between the first end (123) and the second end (121), the wedge (12) being in the form of an expanded shape from the second end (121) to the first end (123); a clamping member (13) having a second inclined surface (1331), the first inclined surface (122) and the second inclined surface (1331) being provided in a face-to-face arrangement and the first inclined surface (122) being movable relative to the second inclined surface (1331); and a housing (14) having a first guiding part (141), a second guiding part (142) and a chamber (144), wherein the operating member (11) is mounted in the first guiding part (141), the clamping member (13) is mounted in the second guiding part (142), and the wedge (12) is disposed in the chamber (144); wherein the operating member (11) is operated to move towards the wedge (12) in a first direction, such that the operating member (11) contacts the first end (123) of the wedge (12) and pushes the wedge (12) to move, and further the first inclined surface (122) of the wedge (12) contacts the second inclined surface (1331) of the clamping member (13) and moves along the second inclined surface (1331); whereby a pushing force of the operating member (11) in the first direction is converted into a clamping force of the clamping member (13) in a second direction.
