Auburn Hills, Michigan (March 18, 2020) – Destaco is pleased to announce the launch and availability of its Model 84A40-1/84A50-1 Power Clamps. Despite their very compact double-arm design, these pneumatically powered clamps produce high force and tolerance compensation for firmly holding sheet metal together during various critical assembly applications, such as welding.

"The new 84A40-1/84A50-1 power clamps with tolerance compensation continue to grow our range of clamping products for welding, assembly and testing applications," said Stefan Eggers, Destaco’s Vice President & General Manager, Europe/Asia and Global Automotive. "The individually adjustable arm opening angles and tolerancecompensation feature allow for maximum flexibility, enabling our customers to minimize installation effort and changeover times, which ultimately reduces their costs." 

The standard opening angle of the clamp is 90 degrees, but the opening angle of both arms is independently adjustable. This versatility enables space-saving installation and makes the clamps very flexible to use.

Three different sets of arms are available for the smaller 84A40-1 model and four for the 84A50-1. As with the well-known Destaco 82M-3E and TCC-2E Power Clamp series, the new double-arm power clamps have two-part sensing and are available in three different sensor variants, such as PNP and NPN. 

The closed design of the clamps also means that they are sealed from external contamination and can be used in harsh operating environments. Lifetime lubrication makes the clamps practically maintenance-free.
