Destaco claims that when its latest VV85G Series precision guides are used in conjunction with its power clamp, pin clamp and pin packages, they offer users increased operational reliability in applications such as sheet-metal welding for automotive body-in-white.
These guide units have the same mounting-hole pattern as the company’s power-clamp products and are said to be suitable for applications where widely extending pins are needed to locate parts. This also makes them suitable for applications where multiple parts are produced on a single production line where clamping and locating points are situated in different positions, says the company.
The company says these guides feature integrated sensing and mechanical locking in both terminal positions, which it claims improves user safety.
