SAS Automation LLC introduced a new lift degater, as the end-of-arm robotic tooling maker in Xenia, Ohio, continues to move into downstream automation.
The device is designed for large plastic parts. A robot moves the part to the degater and sets the part into the “part conforming nests” on top of the unit. The part then is trimmed by several cutting tools that match to the nests.
Waste trim is dropped directly into a container. The finished part is lowered on the lift table to be removed by a packer. A safety light curtain protects the packer from the lift.
SAS makes custom degaters using lift tables, rotary tables and stationary cutting presses, depending on the customer's application. Most systems are operated pneumatically.
