Small version internal diameter gripper
October 1, 2010 by Canadian Plastics
New from SAS Automation LLC, a smaller version of the company’s internal diameter gripper (IDG) 16-26-33 is designed for parts that are small, fragile, or that have an irregular shape.
The IDG grips and releases on command, and is well suited for manipulating breakable parts. Unlike standard clamps, the IDG distributes force evenly over the entire contact area.
Standard features include jaws that exert 14 lbs. of force at 90 PSI; 1/8th-inch neoprene rubber cord stock inserts to ensure a secure grip; and a nose adapter that can easily be customized for locating or part stabilization.
