DE-STA-CO to Feature CAMCO' Ring lndex Drives at ATExpo

Auburn Hills, Michigan, September 23, 2008 - DE-STA-CO will showcase a variety of
workholding and automation products at the annual Assembly Technology Expo. Headlined
by products from its CAMCOn line, the industry leader in material handling solutions will
be located in booth 51 7 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont,
Illinois from September 23 - 25.

DE-STA-CO's family of innovative CAMCO Ring lndex Drives are designed to meet
customers' exacting requirements, Featuring dramatically larger through-holes to
accommodate a variety of automated machinery and equipment, the new index ring drives
allow machine builders to have a larger number of workstations for the assembly of more
complex products. Additionally, the size of the through-holes ensures that the outer
periphery of automated machinery is available for operator accessibility and additional
auxiliary equipment.

The company's CAMCO Modular Tabletop Precision Link Conveyors are ideal for the
specialty automation industry. This advanced product line enables designers and engineers
to conceptualize, cost, design, build and deliver automation systems quickly.

order using standard pre-manufactured components, precision link conveyors can
provide up to 400 workstations for the assembly of multiple-part products such as
automotive fuel pumps, disposable medical devices and electrical switches.
DE-STA-CO's new 9500 series of pneumatic swing clamps is ideal for installations where
hydraulic power is not suitable. Equipped with sensing capability that allows for precise
control and monitoring of the clamping position, the 9500 series exerts a clamping force
ranging from 41 Ibs. to 21 2 Ibs. without deforming delicate parts. Ideal for harsh
application environments due to its fully enclosed design, the 9500 series is also well
suited for secondary manufacturing operations and is uniquely adaptable to welding and
assembly operations.

DE-STA-CO will also showcase its modular DCM-MI conveyor system, an asynchronous
conveyor that guides workpieces through necessary workstations according to their
assembly sequence. The single belt system allows modifications and additions to be made
quickly and easily for increased flexibility. Designed to accommodate workpiece pallets as
large as 8.86 x 8.86 in and 3.66 Ibs, the modular DCM-MI conveyor is available in chassis
widths of 4.14, 5.52, 7.29 and 9.85 in, and is driven by a 3 x 230/400 V central spur gear
drive with variable speed.

Another featured product is the DPP series of parallel grippers, which provides excellent
parallelism and accuracy between the gripper mounting and jaw surfaces. Equipped with
DIRECTCONNECT(TM)te chnology, the gripper series uses its patented " Dual-V" roller
bearings to provide low-friction, high repeatability and excellent performance in holding
delicate parts. This design also allows for the implementation of longer gripper finger
lengths when compared to other grippers within the same size and weight ranges.

The 2000 series of DE-STA-CO's horizontal handle hold-down action clamps offers an
average of twice the holding capacity of legacy models in the same envelope. With
maximum holding capacity ranging from 295 to 1,680 pounds, the clamps ensure
applicability across a wide range of operational demands. Additionally, the unique patented
design prevents spindle slippage and provides increased hand clearance in the open
position, improving ergonomics and safety.
