TOOLING AND WORKHOLDING Modern Machine Shop 93 Welding, Assembly Clamps Useful in Automotive, Aircraft Industries Destaco has launched its TCC-2E series of tolerance compensation clamps (TCCs) designed to provide greater flexibility in welding and assembly applications that require the clamping of components of differing thick- nesses or tighter tolerances. The series is the latest addition in the company's Power Clamp portfolio. Accord- ing to the company, the TCC-2E has been designed to significantly improve the setup and change-over times of production lines by eliminating the need to manually adjust clamps for different sheet metal thicknesses. The TCC-2E is said to interact seamlessly with the company's power clamps, pin clamps and pin packages. The TCC-2E is well-suited for flexible manufacturing applications in the automotive, aircraft and consumer goods industries. An example of this in the automotive industry is the handling of vehicle chassis of varying thicknesses on a single production line. This operation has historically required the use of two clamps that are adjusted for different material thicknesses, but with the TCC, a single unit can be used for multiple material thicknesses, resulting in reduced setup times and pro- duction costs. The clamps are available in a variety of sizes. They feature an enclosed body that protects the internal mechanism and have been tested to be mainte- nance-free for 3 million operating cycles. Various cylin- der designs with unlockable non-return check valves, hold-open devices and rod-lock units are available to meet the needs of various applications. | Destaco | 888-337-8226 | YMW TAPS USA Quality.
