DE-STA-CO says it has added more than 150 parts to its Accelerate collection of lightweight tooling. The collection was expanded with additional options to increase automated press room stamping line speed.
New elements include:
• Crossbar and tri-axis transfer press components
• Clamp blocks, T-clamps and parallel clamp
• Sheet metal gripper mounting brackets
• Sensor-mounting components
It’s claimed the end effectors in the collection are up to 50% lighter than others and can provide production line speed gains of up to 30%. Although lighter the company says the Accelerate components are sized to global standards, making them compatible with existing equipment.
