Vacuum Blocks VCBL-B for Console Tables from Biesse

The new Schmalz vacuum blocks VCBL-B for CNC machining centers from Biesse offer a genuine alternative to the original replacement vacuum blocks: Not only are they extremely robust and able to hold the workpiece in the correct Position even when high forces are at play, but they also offer excellent value for money. Thanks to the range of different shapes and sizes available and the flexible mounting options, they can be used to process all types of workpieces efficiently.

Products and Solutions

Solutions for automated processes

For automated processes Schmalz offers a wide range of individual vacuum component products, from suction pads and special grippers to vacuum generators and switches. The wide range of products from Schmalz allows vacuum systems to be assembled that fit the requirements of the customer perfectly.
The range of individual vacuum components is complemented by the vacuum gripping systems from Schmalz. Gripping systems in the form of large-area gripping systems, layer gripping systems and vacuum spiders have a modular construction. These gripping solutions are configured and planned by Schmalz. In this way, customers profit from the company’s extensive knowledge. The complete systems are ready for connection and provide for maximum flexibility when used in robotic applications.

Solutions for manual handling

Vacuum handling systems that are operated manually simplify production processes through easy and efficient handling of workpieces. The load-bearing devices lighten the weight of the workpiece for the operator and enable ergonomic work without endangering the employees’ health. The vacuum tube lifter Jumbo is particularly suitable for quick lifting tasks. The vacuum lifting device VacuMaster can lift loads weighing several tons safely and reliably.
The handling systems are completed with crane systems and slewing cranes. The crane solutions from Schmalz are especially 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

Vacuum clamping systems for CNC machining centers make set-up times short and enable efficient all-round machining of workpieces. Schmalz offers clamping solutions for CNC machining centers whether they are being equipped for the first time or existing machines are being updated.
The matrix plate is the ideal precision clamping technology for metal and plastic processing. Flat workpieces can be clamped precisely and in a process-safe manner with the matrix plate.
With the Multi-Clamp series, Schmalz offers a clamping solution for manual machining tasks. Using special suction cups, smaller and medium-sized workpieces can be machined on five sides without causing any damage. The clamping solutions are attached directly to the workbench or the machining table.
