Destaco, the industry-leading supplier of high-performance automation, workholding, and remote handling solutions, is excited to announce the availability of its new VV85G Series Precision Guides.
“This launch represents the continuation of our commitment to provide innovative and practical clamping solutions for our global client base,” said Matt McCartney, Destaco’s Vice President, Strategy, Marketing & Product Management. “The new precision guides allow us to give our customers a greater selection and flexibility in their welding and assembly applications, especially in the automotive and transport industries.”
When used in conjunction with Destaco’s power clamp, pin clamp and pin packages, the precision guides provide users increased operational reliability in applications such as sheet-metal welding for automotive body-in-white. Besides welding, they have also been tested for use in assembly and quality-test fixtures in the aircraft and consumer goods industries.
Destaco’s precision guide units have the same mounting-hole pattern as our power-clamp products and are especially suitable for applications where widely extending pins need to be used to locate parts. This also makes them ideal for applications where multiple parts are produced on a single production line where clamping and locating points are situated in different positions.
The precision guides feature high repeatability, integrated sensing and mechanical locking in both terminal positions, which improves user safety. They have an enclosed body that protects the internal mechanism and are maintenance-free for 3 million cycles. The result is units that reduce design and assembly times, while increasing cost-effectiveness and operational flexibility.
