SAS Automation has unveiled a “twist-on” cable saddle frame connector and wire tie system for better End-of-Arm Tool (EOAT) cable management. This system allows EOAT builders to easily attach air hoses and or power cables to the tool.
The design of the cable saddle allows the hoses or cables to be removed and moved to other locations on the tool as needed during the build process. Twisting the cable saddle to lock into the profile provides a solid connection to the profile and the ability to move the cables or hoses without wasting the wire ties by having to cut them off.
The cable saddles are available in 15 mm and 25 mm sizes to accommodate various sizes of EOAT hoses and cables. An opening built into the base of the cable saddle allows for the wire ties to loop through, allowing for the cable saddle to be permanently attached to the cables or hoses.
