The company’s extensive knowledge is what the customers profit from. Used in robotic applications, the complete systems are ready for connection and provide for maximum flexibility.

Solutions for manual handling

Production processes are simplified by vacuum handling systems that are operated manually, through easy and efficient handling of workpieces. Due to the load-bearing devices, the operator does not have to lift the heavy workpieces and can work ergonomically and without endangering the operators’ health. Especially for quick lifting tasks the vacuum tube lifter Jumbo is suitable. Loads with a weight of several tons can be lifted safely and reliably with the vacuum lifting device VacuMaster. Completed with crane systems and slewing cranes, the handling systems are easy to move. Aluminum crane rails and the ability to cover large work areas make the cranes and slewing cranes the perfect partner for the lifting aids.

Clamping solutions

Short set-up times and efficient all-round machining of workpieces, this is what the Vacuum clamping systems for CNC machining centers from Schmalz enabe. Either the CNC machining centers are equipped for the first time or existing machines are being updated, Schmalz offers suitable clamping solutions. For precision clamping technology for metal and plastic processingthe matrix plate is the ideal solution. With the matrix plate flat workpieces can be clamped precisely and in a process-safe manner. With the Multi-Clamp series, Schmalz offers a clamping solution for manual machining tasks. With special suction cups, smaller and medium-sized workpieces can be processed on five sides without causing any damage. The clamping solutions are attached directly to the workbench or the machining table.
