Auburn Hills, Mich. (March 16, 2015) – Automation can greatly increase the productivity of a plastic injection molding system, but few machine builders share the same needs. That’s why Destaco, a global leader in automation equipment, is showing a variety of automation tools and custom solutions at NPE2015. The event takes place March 23-27 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla. Plastics processors can see end effector demos and other innovative products in Destaco booth #S10088 on the South Hall’s first level.
“Destaco offers a diverse line of automation equipment built for speed and precision,” says Rob Pitera, Destaco global product director, end effectors. “Our goal is to find the right combination of products for our customers, so they can build custom setups that maximize efficiency and resources. No matter what industry the customer operates in, from plastic packaging to automotive and beyond, Destaco has the right tools for the application.”
The Destaco booth will feature a series of end effectors built with Accelerate® Collection and MicroTooling lightweight components. Accelerate Collection parts are made with highstrength aircraft aluminum, which means they are up to 50 percent lighter than traditional steel parts. This allows users to increase production line speed without stressing other automation equipment.
Destaco’s MicroTooling line features the same weight-saving benefits, but its parts are specifically sized for the plastic injection molding market. MicroTooling products are compact, modular and flexible, enabling users to build off of any two-axis or robotic automation equipment. MicroTooling and Accelerate Collection components can be combined to create lightweight end effectors for nearly any size need.
In addition to MicroTooling and Accelerate Collection end effectors, the Destaco booth at NPE2015 will include vacuum cup and tool changer demos. Robohand grippers, slides and rotaries, as well as CAMCO indexers will also be on display. Destaco product experts will be available to discuss custom tooling.
