Modular gripper systems from SAS Automation are designed for handling molded plastic parts where an extremely light-weight gripper is needed. Typically these grippers are mounted onto robots or dedicated un-loaders which service injection molding machines.
The SAS Automation gripper system comprises extruded alloy profiles in seven sizes which are secured by a standard range of connectors and clamps to provide the basic gripper frame. To this frame a selection of mountings are available to secure grippers, vacuum cups, sprue pliers and sensors etc.
Further elements such as air nippers and static eliminators can also be incorporated to perform additional functions during the handling process, making the gripper a working tool.
Users can order specific componenets to build up a gripper, or alternatively select from a range of standrard gripper kits which comprise everything needed to build a gripper. Both design and build times are reduced significantly and no special tools or equipment is necessary.
A huge benefit of the modular gripper system using standrad parts is that the components can be re-used when new or re-designed workpieces are introduced. This means that grippers can be quickly re-built and costs are significantly reduced over the lifetime of the systems.
The system also includes a low cost quick-change chuck which can be fitted to any robot for efficient tool changes.
