SAS Automation launches Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) for EOAT, Hybrid End Effectors and Adjustable Bag Grippers

KARLSRUHE — SAS Automation, the leader in superior robotic End-of-Arm Tooling (EOAT) and automation technology for the material handling industry, is unveiling three new products at the 2013 Motek International Trade Fair. The three new products being debuted include:
Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) or 3-D Printed End-of-Arm Tooling solutions, the Hybrid 'HX' End Effectors and Adjustable Bag Grippers.

SLS or 3-D Printed End-of-Arm Tooling Solutions:
SAS Automation now has the capability to design and install an end-of-arm tooling system using SLS or 3-D printed parts. This new process allows for a more precise match and tailored fit to the exact robot connection and a more secure sensitive grip. The parts consist of soft flocking material, which can carefully handle class 'A' surface parts. At the Motek show, SAS will be demonstrating the SLS parts and the differences between EOAT's with rapid prototyping parts and traditional SAS parts.

Hybrid 'HX' End Effectors:
SAS Automation just introduced new Hybrid 'HX' End Effectors for 5+ Axis Robots, made exclusively with the newly developed SAS 'HX' hybrid frame profiles and modular off the shelf gripper components. This new 'HX' End Effector is specifically designed for increased flexibility, offering an optimal "hybrid" design that includes the benefits of tubular frame adjustability as well as extruded channel frame profile rigidity. Robotic production use includes long reach boom press tending applications or heavy-duty material handling. The new End Effector is ideal for high-speed, heavy weight, or press tending applications, especially when gripping from a flat steel stack to load the stamping die to a formed part removal mode.

"The HX's flexibility and adjustability allows for better routing of pneumatic hoses and electrical sensor wires to grippers and suction cups as well as many other necessary applications," said Trent Fisher, President of SAS Automation. "Its interchangeability with all of SAS's modular EOAT line of components makes this one of our premier profiles."

Adjustable Bag Grippers:
This innovative gripper uses stainless steel fingers for both strength and the 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. SAS' adjustable bag grippers are ideal for palletizing plastic, woven cloth or paper bags containing grains, chemicals, dog food and minerals.
