Press Release Summary:
Modular degating system provides consistent, clean cuts for fan gates. Mounted on rigid frame, unit can be designed to trim straight or curved fan gates; radii as small as 1 in. can be achieved for curved fan gates. To reduce amount of force required to make cut, blade can be heated using solid state controls. Cutter blade driving mechanism can be pneumatic cylinder or belt driven from motor drive.

SAS Automation - Introduces New Rail Degater
Xenia, Ohio (December 2007) - SAS introduces a compact, modular degating system for fan gates that will greatly enable companies to reduce their finishing labor costs, and more importantly, provide consistent clean cuts for fan gates. Mounted on a rigid frame, this degating unit can be designed to trim either straight or curved fan gates. Radiuses as small as one inch (25.4 mm) can be achieved for curved fan gates.
If and when necessary, the cutting blade can be heated using solid state controls thus requiring less force to make the cut. The cutter blade driving mechanism can be selected from either a pneumatic cylinder or belt driven from a motor drive. In addition to a floor mount, this degating unit can also be easily mounted to a gantry robot beam for more complex degating.
According to SAS Automation, General Manager, Richard Petz, "The SAS Rail Degater incorporates innovative modular systems that provide precision cutting for either straight or curved fan gates. Processors will appreciate reducing finishing costs, and the user friendliness of this degater. Increasing speed to market with better cutting -- is a driving force behind the many degaters designed by SAS. We are proud to present such a labor efficient degater."
