SAS Automation introduces adjustable bag gripper

SAS Automation has developed an adjustable bag gripper for a variety of bag handling applications that eliminates the need for costly custom tooling and can be adjusted quickly and easily in minutes for different production runs using a simple hand wheel.

Ideal for plastic, woven cloth and paper bags containing heavy products including grains, chemicals, dog food, minerals and plastic resins.
This gripper uses stainless steel fingers for both strength and their ability to withstand harsh manufacturing environments.
A decker mechanism is designed into the tool to facilitate an accurate bag drop once positioned over the pallet -- crucial for a tightly packed pallet.
In less than 30 seconds, the tool’s bag width can be changed from 12 to 21 inches.
