An adjustable bag gripper handles a variety of applications and eliminates the need for costly custom tooling, says the co. Can be adjusted quickly and easily for different production runs using a simple handwheel. The gripper works with plastic, woven cloth and paper bags containing heavy products including grain, chemicals, petfood, minerals and resin. The gripper uses stainless-steel fingers for both strength and their ability to withstand harsh manufacturing environments. A decker mechanism facilitates accurate bag drop once the bag is positioned over a pallet, which is crucial for a tightly packed pallet. In less than 30 sec, the bag width can be changed from 12 to 21 in., the co. says.
