Auburn Hills, Mich. (Feb. 17, 2015) – Destaco has combined several individual product line catalogs into a single new easy-to-use resource for stamping press operators. The comprehensive new Press Room Catalog is designed to show customers all the tooling, vacuum and gripping options Destaco offers for building efficient sheet metal press end effectors.
“For years, Destaco produced separate catalogs for tool changing, gripping, vacuum and Accelerate Collection lightweight tooling products,” says Rob Pitera, Destaco 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 Destaco 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 Destaco 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.
“Rather than just provide a standard list of part numbers, we took the opportunity to make the Press Room Catalog more of a resource for customers to use to get the most out of their stamping lines,” says Pitera.
The Press Room Catalog is available online at www.destaco.com/assets/docs/en/catalogs/DSC-Press-Room-Catalog-US.pdf. For a print version, call (888) DESTACO (888-337- 8226).
