SAS Automation recently introduced a Fork Tool for handling a wide variety of containers from oversized heavy bags to open-top containers. Bags and other containers made of Kraft paper, polycarbonate, PVC coated, woven mesh, cotton are easily handled by this EOAT. Retracting Fork-style EOATs are ideal for handling trays, totes, open-top containers, closed-top containers and other difficult to palletize containers that must be picked-up from the bottom.
This tool uses 11.1 mm (7/16") diameter solid stainless steel fingers for strength, long-lasting durability, and ability to withstand harsh manufacturing environments.
