Original Press Release:
>SAS< Automation Introduces GRM Magnetic Gripper
SAS Automation introduces a heavy-duty GRM Magnetic Gripper - ideal for use when vacuum cups and grippers are typically used for lifting and moving steel sheets, blanks, stamped parts and completed assemblies.
Applications & Benefits:
Low Profile Magnetic Grippers:
The SAS Magnetic Gripper is designed to directly replace vacuum cups with minor tooling and valving adjustments. Powerful Rare Earth magnets positively hold the parts during transfer, greatly reducing the chance of slipping and shifting of your part due to oily coatings. An optional "low-skid" boot is also available to increase grip on parts during transfer. A short burst of shop air pressure is applied in order to release parts. To pick-up or grip parts, the air pressure must be exhausted to the atmosphere.
