SAS Automation introduces new bag gripper
SAS Automation recently introduced a new smaller bag gripper for a variety of bag handling applications including palletizing woven cloth, plastic or paper bags containing heavy products including grains, chemicals, dog food, minerals and plastic resins. This innovative 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.

Ψ9.5mm solid aluminum fingers with ball-nose ends
Spring-return Aluminum Decking Plates to guide the bag
