SMPi Vacuum Generator Reduces Compressed Air Usage

Schmalz SMPi Vac GeneratorThe Schmalz SMPi senses when the defined vacuum level is achieved and then the vacuum switch sends a signal to the integrated control unit, which causes the control unit to deactivate the suction via the solenoid valve. The vacuum level is held via a check valve, if leakage occurs the vacuum switch detects it and activates suction for a split-second via the control unit until the defined vacuum level is reached.

Vacuum Gripping Systems

Schmalz’s complex vacuum gripping systems range from layer and large-area vacuum gripping systems to ready-to-install vacuum suction spiders for use in all areas of automation.  The large-area vacuum gripping systems FXC and FMC guarantee maximum flexibility during automated handling processes. It makes automated palletizing, depalletizing, order picking and sorting of the most varied goods in varying dimensionsvacuum gripping systems with only one gripper possible. With the vacuum layer gripper SPZ, entire product layers can be palletized and depalletized. Loading and unloading of partially filled pallets is made possible by a combination of vacuum technology and mechanical gripper support. This universal gripper is best suited for handling crates, carton boxes, foil packages, intermediate layers, pallets, and much more.
