                                    • SpiderGrip™ components are manufactured to such a high standard that any single component can be replaced without affecting the location or geometry of the parts that are being assembled.
                                    • A "fuse" (break away) has been designed into the system so that in the event of a crash only a single component needs to be replaced, preserving the location of pins, clamps and gages.
                                        • BodyBuilder

                                        • RM4 Heavy-Duty Mild Mounts

                                          The RM4 is a highly engineered, robust structural mounting platform that can be used as a direct robot interface. RM4s provide structurally stable point of attachment for SpiderGrip appendages (limbs). Standard robot interface patterns provided. RM4 can also be with out a mounting pattern for custom mounting.

                                          Anchors & Collar Assemblies

                                          Anchors are used to precisely locate and attach the SpiderGrip appendage. Anchors are also engineered to act as an "over load fuse" in the event of a collision to protect the automation, the locating pins or clamp, as well as the object that was impacted. Collar assembles are used for each and every attachment point on SpiderGrip. Two bolts and precision-ground cross-keys are used to locate and hold the SpiderGrip components to each other.
                                    • Compliance Devices

                                    • Robohand Compliance Devices are robotic tooling alignment equipment. These compliance devices are excellent for insertion applications where parts are misaligned or skewed, or to compensate for part placing inaccuracies, reducing jamming of mating parts.

                                      Robohand Compliance Devices are available in three types:
                                      • The Compliance Wrist has compliance in torsion, bending and lateral direction.

                                      • DE-STA-CO material handling clamps are built to meet the most demanding requirements, to keep your workpieces in place. Workpieces need to be held in a specific position using a specific amount of force in the shortest period of time. Once the workpiece is clamped, the processing of it is usually carried out. This means that the following tasks must be fulfilled using DE-STA-CO Manual, Pneumatic and Hydraulic Clamps including:
                                        • Quick clamping
                                        • Secure holding
                                        • High clamping forces in a variety of space requirements
                                        • Distortion-free clamping of the workpiece
                                        • Good accessibility to the workpiece
                                        Workpieces are clamped in nearly all applications of a manufacturing environment. In the metalworking industry, reliable clamping is a basic requirement for drilling, welding, bending, grinding, testing, assembling, etc.

                                        DE-STA-CO Clamp Accessories are matched to DE-STA-CO Clamps to provide optimal performance and functionality.

We offer a variety of clamping components, power sources and accessories that are ideal for retrofitting or updating simple mechanical systems or more complex clamping and locating applications. Primary advantages of hydraulic clamping include:
                                                • High clamping forces with relatively small clamping elements
                                                • Repeatable and consistent clamping force given part size variation
                                                • Remote operation of many clamping elements for increased productivity

                                                Most components are available as singe-acting to allow the use of our air-oil boosters. These economical power sources offer an affordable way to get the power of a hydraulic system with the use of your shop air supply.
