>SAS< Automation Introduces Internal Diameter Gripper – smaller version
>SAS< Automation recently introduced a new smaller version of their Internal Diameter Gripper (IDG) 16-26-33 ideal for parts that are small, fragile, or have an irregular shape.
The IDG grips and releases on command and is highly recommended for manipulating breakable parts. Unlike standard clamps, the IDG distributes force evenly over the entire contact area which is why they are most often used for irregular shaped parts.
This new IDG is a cost effective solution when compared to bladder grippers and automated or magnetic clamps.
Significant Features: • Secures ID’s ranging from 26-33mm. • Requires one compressed air line; spring return • Extremely strong for its size -- jaws exert 14 lbs force @ 90 PSI. • Ø1/8” Neoprene rubber cord stock inserts ensure a secure grip – and can be replaced at low cost. Other elastomers can be used and are commercially available. • Nose adapter can easily be customized for locating or part stabilization.
“This new gripper is simply a better clamping method for small parts that are hard to handle – at a reduced cost,” said Rob Dalton, General Manager for >SAS< Automation.
