SAS Automation Announces Wide Range of Internal Diameter Grippers
The IDG is a cost effective solution when compared to bladder grippers and automated or magnetic clamps. The IDG now comes in three sizes to accommodate very small, to very large or fragile parts. The IDG grips and releases on command and is highly recommended for manipulating breakable parts as well as heavy parts. Unlike standard clamps, the IDG distributes forces evenly over the entire contact area making the IDG ideal for irregular shaped parts. o IDG 16
