DESTACO Introduces Accelerate Vision VR Solutions
DESTACO has recently announced the launch of its new Accelerate Vision Virtual Reality (VR) digital design solutions tool. The Accelerate Vision VR tool is currently on display for attendees in Booth No. 1436 at the Automate 2017.
Taking advantage of the latest advances in VR technology, the Accelerate Vision tool has been designed to work in the production of DESTACO’s Accelerate Collection end effector components, which can be assembled into custom solutions for most pressroom stamping applications.
As the speed of manufacturing continues to increase, the design process for these components must also be accelerated while meeting strict demands regarding die-making and tooling accuracy and precision. By utilising the Accelerate Vision VR digital design tool at the beginning of the design process, DESTACO is able to precisely build an end effector based on customer-supplied models and also provide detailed information and data to die-makers. This enables the die-makers to streamline their design and review process. The result is tooling that is accurate with an overall improvement in product quality for the end-user.
“Upon design review, the Accelerate Vision VR tool allows us to create complete process simulations,” explained Stefan Eggers, DESTACO’s vice president, global sales and service. “This key analysis and simulation enable us to capture interface positioning, additional collision points and maximise the press speed. After detailed simulation analysis is verified, we can move to accurately build and validate the end effector tool.”
The Accelerate Vision VR tool is part of DESTACO’s suite of Accelerate Digital Solutions, which also includes simulation and manufacturing components. These Digital Solutions also allow the use of robot-assisted production cells during manufacturing operations, with the robot possessing the capability to increase the precision in which parts are built without the need for samples or 2D drawings. Once the construction of the component is complete, it goes through a laser-validation process to confirm that all measurements are in compliance with the approved design.
