DE-STA-CO has combined several individual product line catalogs into a single easy-to-use resource for stamping press operators. The comprehensive Press Room Catalog is designed to show customers all the tooling, vacuum and gripping options DE-STA-CO offers for building efficient sheet metal press end effectors.
“For years, DE-STA-CO produced separate catalogs for tool changing, gripping, vacuum and Accelerate Collection lightweight tooling products,” said Rob Pitera, DE-STA-CO global product director for end effectors. “Combining all of that information into the new Press Room Catalog gives customers a single user-friendly resource where they can see the full extent of the press room solutions DE-STA-CO offers.”
The 290-page Press Room Catalog can be downloaded at www.destaco.com/assets/docs/en/catalogs/DSC-Press-Room-Catalog-US.pdf. For convenience, the electronic version features a navigable table of contents. This allows users to move directly to any one of the more than 60 product categories in the document.
To show customers some of the possible end effector tooling combinations that can be created using DE-STA-CO products, the Press Room Catalog features a new end effector application guide. The application guide includes examples of several tooling setups, each diagrammed to show all of the individual parts included on the tool and which applications or markets the tool is best suited for.
Photos, renderings and product numbers can be found throughout the Press Room Catalog. Additionally, some sections include detailed features and benefits to help customers make the right selections for their needs. The vacuum cup section, for instance, includes ratings that show which cups work best for differing material surface conditions.
