New air-powered pivot units are ideal choice for moving large objects in welding and assembly applications

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., May 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ – Destaco, a part of Dover (NYSE: DOV), has introduced the RFM/RCM Series, a new family of pivot units. These products have been designed with adjustable opening angles that offer greater application flexibility with a compact size that reduces space requirements.

"The new RFM/RCM Series air-powered pivot units feature an integrated patented locking system, adjustable opening angles and a compact design, saving time and enhancing flexibility during operations,” said Christian Schubert, Global Product Manager at Destaco. “Its cutting-edge sensor system also ensures greater part-placement accuracy."
