Challenge
An Automotive/Transportation customer needed to 
assemble a product by placing it in a specific position to complete their assembly. The customer was completing the process manually, resulting ergonomic & effciency issues. The manual process included actuating a pivot mechanism that held some parts in place. This process additionally was limiting the space available to the customer. 




Solution
DESTACO partnered with the customer to customize a model 331 pull action clamp that would actuate a pivot mechanism that was able to correctly and consistently hold their parts as the assembly process continued. This change to their assembly was able to provide the customer with a 20% increase in productivity and was able to remove the ergonomic issues they were facing.
