Expanded Vacuum Cup Line



DESTACO, a global provider of high-performance automation, workholding and containment solutions, recently launched its new Accelerate Collection of vacuum cups, designed to offer improved traction, enhanced durability and higher throughput for high-speed press rooms and crossbar applications.

Available globally, the Accelerate Collection of vacuum cups feature an anti-slip tread pattern made from a high-performance polyurethane material designed for higher friction, faster grip and superior holding on oily surfaces. Additionally, this material was designed to provide an increased shelf life.

"As manufacturers look to improve their production rates, lightweighting will become increasingly important - especially as it relates to automation tooling, such as end effectors or transfer press fingers," said Ben Pauzus, Global Product Manager, End Effectors, DESTACO. "Lighter solutions that offer higher holding power give customers the best opportunity to increase their throughput. Not only are production increases recognized through the ability to increase transfer speed, but the polyurethane material is more durable allowing for fewer PM cycles and less downtime."

The new line also includes four styles in 17 different sizes to accommodate modular requirements. Additional features include:

  • Higher acceleration/deceleration requirements
  • Enhanced transverse loading
  • Improved shape retention
  • Increased wear resistance - no dry rotting or cracking
  • Compatibility with new or existing applications.
  • ARV with Manual Override

Designed for ease of use, DESTACO recently launched the Auto-Release Venturi (ARV) with a manual override feature that allows for quick, on-the-spot vacuum cup adjustment. "The ARV manual override has a single button that can be depressed with either a thumb or finger," said a company spokesperson. "This allows the tool builder/operator to make fast, easy adjustments to the vacuum cup position, which can help reduce downtime."

Accelerate Collection

Made of a wide range of aluminum end effector components, the Accelerate Collection can be assembled into custom solutions for most press room stamping applications. These can provide weight savings up to 50 percent and speed gains of up to 30 percent - all for faster production without adding stress to automation equipment.
