New SBG-50 Servo Bag Gripper

Press release date: Jan 18, 2013

>SAS< Automation recently introduced their new SBG-50, the Servo width adjusting Bag Gripper for palletizing multiple bag widths at the same time. This innovative gripper will enable a single robot to palletize 2 in – 2 out conveyor systems or a single in-feed conveyor with multiple sizes of bags.

As is standard throughout our line of Adjustable bag grippers the SBG-50 uses stainless steel fingers for strength and ability to withstand harsh palletizing environments. Our independent Decker Plates provide accurate bag drop placement; crucial for a tight and stabile pallet. The standard SBG-50 will palletize bags measuring 265 – 500 mm in width (10.5 – 19.6 in); a manual adjustment will allow bags as narrow as 165 mm (6.5 in) to be palletized as well.

SBG-50 Servo Bag Gripper
• Gearbox / motor combinations for various robot manufactures
• Capable of servicing multiple lines with bags of different sizes
• Robust belt and pulley system
• Linear rails for smooth, quiet motion
• Includes standard SAS bag gripper features such as stainless steel fingers, independent decker plates, and top-mounted bag clamps
• Programmable Servo drive bag width adjustment on the fly from 265 – 500 mm with an additional manual adjustment to reduce the width to 165 mm for very narrow bags
• Bag heights from 65-165 mm / weights up to 50kg

“Our new SBG-50 Servo bag gripper is ideal for palletizing heavy bags with multiple widths at high speeds,” said Rob Dalton, General Manager for >SAS< Automation.
