About SAS


Since 1996, SAS Automation has designed and manufactured modular component-based robotic end-of-arm tooling (EOAT) and gripper systems. SAS are specialists in end-effector gripper systems for all makes of robots, used across a number of manufacturing and distribution industries.

This means SAS provides the 'wrists' and 'hands' for all major makes of robots – KUKA, Yaskawa Motoman, ABB, FANUC, and others.

Mission and Core Values

SAS Automation's mission is to solve our customers' automation challenges. We will provide high-quality, effective end-of-arm tools to improve our customers' ability to manufacture, package, and ship their products in a timely and cost-effective manner.While there are many attributes that define our culture and commitment to our customers, our core values include:

Innovation – we are only as good as our ability to solve our customers' challenges. SAS is dedicated to more than supplying end-of-arm tools and components. We are dedicated to developing new solutions that drive our customers' success.

Expertise – we can only consider ourselves experts if we are first humble learners and explorers. We listen to our customers. We focus on learning more about our craft. We practice and test until we get it right. We set high standards for ourselves.

Precision – Our components and tools work because we pay attention to details. Successful automation requires precision to accommodate the size and weight of the products being moved. We must be able to handle the right speed as well and a variety of materials and shapes. Successful automation is a complex business that requires a dedication to precise execution.
