>SAS< Automation (Xenia, OH) chose the recent K Show to debut two new gripper tooling options for process automation: Uni-Grip and Uni-Clamp Robotic Gripper Tooling.
Essentially the Uni-Grip System is a universal system that allows for a precise gripper tool to be built with the added benefit of greater assembly flexibility. Fastening is via a unique expanding channel mount, rather than a channel nut. The system also features center-mountable components without disassembly or additional drop in channel nuts.
The Uni-Clamp Gripper Components are also universal; possessing the ability to mount into the extruded nut channels on different brands and sizes of frame profile, resulting in unique and expanding channel hooks for component mounting on virtually any profile brand and type and allowing use of current in-house frame profiles.
"Uni-Grip is a new system that is simply an ultra-flexible solution, which allows use with virtually any frame profile and allows adding mounting components at any time not only during the assembly process, but also during lean process improvements. There has never been a more flexible gripper system on the market today. We know the difficulty when trying to modify tools which may be built with different brands and configurations of frame profile - this universal system eliminates that expensive headache," says Robert Dalton, General Manager for >SAS< Automation.-[email protected]
