ABG / FBG / SBG Bag Gripper

SAS Automation introduces a family of adjustable width bag grippers in 25 and 50kg payloads for palletizing plastic, woven cloth or paper bags. The ABG eliminates custom tooling with its width adjustment system. In less than 30 seconds, the ABG-25 bag width can be changed from 185-450mm (7.3 to 17.7 inches), and the ABG-50 bag width can be changed from 170-500mm (6.7 to 19.6 inches). 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 and Pallet Hook options are available.
