Vacuum Technology at the Fachpack

The Fachpack turns 40! Schmalz is already exhibiting at the trade fair for packaging technologies for the 27th time and will be there again in 2019 with innovative vacuum solutions. Following the motto of the fair we will show new solutions for the packaging, food and pharmaceutical industries at our booth 3-141 in hall 3. These include both manual and automated handling solutions.

Vacuum Technology for Automation

Schmalz offers a wide range of vacuum components for an even wider range of industries. From suction cups to mounting equipment to vacuum generation, customers can obtain all components needed for a vacuum system from a single source. Our highlights at this year's trade show include:


Additively manufactured lightweight gripper SLG

Schmalz has developed the additive lightweight gripper SLG for use on lightweight robots and cobots. It is suitable for dynamic end-of-line packaging as well as for pick-and-place applications and can be easily integrated thanks to suitable interfaces. The corresponding configurator enables you to obtain a gripper that matches your CAD workpiece with just a few clicks.

New: Vacuum area gripping system FXCB with suction cups

The area gripping system FXCB, which is used for example in stationary handling tasks or intralogistics, is also additively manufactured. Thanks to its innovative product design, it is suitable for use in human-robot collaboration. In addition to a version with foam, the gripper is now also available with suction cups.

Vacuum Lifters and Crane Systems for Manual Processes

Vacuum lifters can help achieve ergonomic and efficient processes. The vacuum lifter relieves the user of the weight of the workpiece, which helps prevent injuries due to the continual lifting and moving of heavy loads. Our highlights at this year's trade show include:

Jumbo Low-Stack for ergonomic lifting from low positions

The Schmalz Jumbo Low-Stack is the ideal and ergonomic handling solution for picking up workpieces from layers close to the floor or for deep immersion in transport containers such as mesh boxes, crates or cartons. Handle workpieces in internal logistics processes up to 180 kg.
