SAS offers degating and cutting tools to cover the whole variety of cutting situations, ranging from basic to highly sophisticated. Our hand cutters, pneumatic cutters, EOAT mounted cutters and standard and custom degaters can give you an appropriate level of precision and efficiency – even with plastics hard enough to give conventional tools trouble.

Insert molding and in-mold labeling are two of the most difficult tasks for either an operator or EOAT to perform.

Insert molding is the process of placing small parts into a mold that then become part of the finished product. The robot must be able to assure proper placement and alignment of the inserts. Our experience designing EOAT for insert placement has made the process second nature to us, regardless of complexity or size. SAS has developed numerous solutions such as innovative magazine loading technology to automate the entire process -- from loading of over-mold parts to extraction, degating and secondary operations.

Our modular component systems provide a level of EOAT customization and ease-of-use that serves the vast majority of our customer’s automation requirements. But if you’re a plastics manufacturer who needs even more precision and control, our made-to-order tooling designs will help you reach unprecedented efficiency and productivity.

All custom assemblies are tested for quality and functionality prior to shipment to ensure success at your facility. From simple applications for a one cavity mold to complex die-locked multi cavity parts, SAS can design and build the optimum tool for your de-molding needs.

The SAS ABG Adjustable Bag Gripper is ideal for palletizing plastic, woven cloth or paper bags containing grains, chemicals, dog food, minerals and any other bagged products. A hand wheel-driven lead screw quickly changes the ABG for different bag widths, while the optional servo-drive adjusts width on the fly to accommodate mixed loads. (The FBG Fixed Bag Gripper is also available for a set range of widths.)

15.86mm-diameter solid stainless steel gripper fingers secure the bag as independent decking plates square-up and align the bag for accurate placement. For example, the ABG-50 is designed to handle weights of 2.27-49.9 kg (5-110 lbs.), widths of 304.8-533.4 mm (12-21 in.) and to pick from standard conveyors. An optional slip sheet system is also available.

Retracting fork-style EOATs are especially well-suited for open-top containers and oversized bags that must be picked from the bottom. The stroking forks are designed to pick product from a roller conveyor. The forks retract through a stationary stripper plate and the product is placed on the pallet. Your EOAT can be set up to include slip sheet option and the forks can also be used to pick and place a shipping pallet using the optional pallet hook option.

Vacuum place end-of-arm tools can palletize single containers and even complete pallet layers. These EOATs are powered by vacuum turbines or venturi generators and provide superior gripping capabilities by using high-vacuum flow. Valved vacuum ports automatically close when there are gaps between the products or the product is not present. The vacuum places can also be zoned for multiple pick-and-places.

SAS also designs and builds vacuum cup EOATs for cartons, pails and bags. High speed and corrugated carbon applications are designed around a system which can provide a high vacuum level for heavy containers or high vacuum flow for corrugated cartons.

Side-clamp EOATs work particularly well for slip top cartons and heavyweight applications where a topside pick is impossible – for instance, 18.14 kg (40 lb.) blocks of cheese in glued-up corrugated cartons. Our engineers will help you program the customizable clamping cylinders to apply the exact force for controlling the carton. This allows for multiple sizes of cartons to be palletized with the same EOAT. An optional slip sheet system is also available.

FBG 22/25/50- Fixed Bag Gripper

SAS Automation introduces a family of adjustable width bag grippers in 22, 25 and 50kg payloads for palletizing plastic, woven cloth or paper bags. The FBG fixed width models are adjustable in less than 4 minutes. Independent Decking Plates square-up and align the bag for precise placement on the pallet while the top mounted Bag Clamps maintain bag position on the tool during robot travel to the pallet. Slip Sheet options are available.
