Plastics: Vacuum Technology for the Industry

In the production hall of a big paper factory heavy sacks must be commissioned and transported to the paper machines. Previously, this work was done manually, placing the employees under great physical strain. Today the vacuum tube lifter Jumbo Flex ensures faster materials handling while taking the burden off the employees.   The tube lifter Jumbo Flex 50 handles small to medium-sized loads up to 50 kg very quickly and ergonomically. The operator handle can be operated intuitively with one hand. Depending on the employee’s preference, it can be operated with one or two fingers on the right or left…

Logistics: Vacuum Technology for the Industry

Vacuum specialist Schmalz is extending its range of vacuum generators with very high suction rates with the launch of the new basic ejector SBPL (Schmalz Basic Pump Large). It is particularly well suited for safe handling of various workpieces and enables short cycle times.   Schmalz has greatly increased the efficiency of the ejector over its predecessor. The new eco nozzle technology is based on a multi-stage venturi concept and ensures an optimum combination of suction capacity and energy efficiency: Thanks to the eco nozzle, the suction rate in the range from -200 to -600 mbar is, in some cases,…

Vacuum Technology for Clamping of Workpieces

For years Schmalz has been successfully offering the VCBL-S series of standard vacuum blocks for both the TV and the TVN system of SCM’s console table machines. Additionally Schmalz introduced the AP-S4 the Adapter Plate for SCM’s TVN system. With the AP-S4 you are now able to use the Standard VCBL-B vacuum blocks making your clamping system a lot more flexible and cost efficient at the same time.

Vacuum Lifters for Multiple Manual Processes

The vacuum tube lifter Jumbo Flex grips goods weighing up to 50 kg. This vacuum lifter is particularly suited for use in distribution centers and intra-company logistics processes. The tube lifter can handle the high cycle frequencies required in these processes. The vacuum lifter prevents injury because the user does not need to continually lift and turn.   The ergonomic one-hand operation method gives the user outstanding range of movement. The load is gripped and lifted as soon as the lifter is set down on the workpiece. When the user presses the operating button, air is fed in and the…

Automotive: Vacuum Technology for the Industry

Automotive glass has to be handled with particular care in a way that is also ergonomic for the user. Often, a number of different glass panels with different radii have to be sequenced or placed on a processing table, conveyor belt or gluing unit.   The tube lifter Jumbo Flex with ergonomic one-hand operation is ideal for handling glass panels. Special glass suction cups prevent any marks on the workpieces. The JumboFlex lets you rapidly handle up to 300 picks per hour.  

Packaging: Vacuum Technology for the Industry

A special FDA-compliant material is required when making direct contact with food products. A high flow rate is needed to handle dry food products like biscuits, cookies, cakes or waffles, because their surfaces and shapes are usually irregular and porous.   The special gripper SCG Food features a contact element made from FDA-compliant silicone and a flexible sealing lip that ensures an excellent seal even on textured surfaces. The dirt-resistant vacuum generator provides a high flow rate and high leakage compensation.  

Vacuum Technology for Automation

The flow gripper SCG is equipped with an antistatic suction cup. The flow gripper compensates for leakages e.g. caused by differences in height.   The flexible sealing lip of the suction cup additionally compensates for differences in height. The suction cup is made of the antistatic material NBR.
