Area Gripping System FX / FXP

As a unit that is ready for connection, the area gripping system FXP is equipped with a plug-in ejector for vacuum generation. It can be individually configured and quickly retooled in case of changing application conditions. The modular design ensures easy maintenance and enables the integration of additional functions for energy and process optimization directly in the gripper.

Modular Design with Integrated Vacuum Generation

Integrated Plug-in Ejector

  • Optimized ejector performance: with comparatively low maximum vacuum, the ejector generates a high

  • volume flow and thus provides high holding forces, especially for applications with porous workpieces

  • Fast evacuation and high suction flow even at low vacuum values

  • Control valves integrated into the end cover for controlling the suction and blow off functions (optional)

  • Silencer for reducing the sound level to 74 dB(A)

  • Ready to connect unit, easy to clean

Sealing foam and suction pads can be changed quickly and easily due to the optimized adhesive film and the push-in function

Sealing Foam with Quick-Change Adhesive Film

  • Optimal adjustment capabilities

  • Quick rebound for short cycle times

  • Replaceable without adhesive residue and without the need to clean the sheet

  • Intended for workpieces wider than 20 mm (in the design with 5 suction rows, on request)

  • With optional filter mat

Suction Pads with Push-in Function

  • Optimal height compensation and damping effect

  • Quick replacement due to the push-in mechanism

Automated Handling of Strongly Bent Aluminum Sections using the FXC Gripping System

Area Gripping System for handling aluminum sections

A pre-configured vacuum gripper system from Schmalz, mounted on a robot, is used to automatically handle the sections between the individual work stages. The gripper system comprises four FXC large-area grippers with integrated vacuum generation.


Large-area gripping system FXC for use with tabletop saw

Large-area gripping system FXC for use with tabletop saw

Sawing of wood panels is a dangerous and accurate work. The Warsaw Machinery company integrates into their automated saw systems, the large-area gripping system FXC. It enabled the handling for various workpieces in undefined positions.


Door handling with vacuum gripping system FXC

Door handling with vacuum gripping system FXC

The large-area vacuum gripping system FXC is often used for the handling of doors. The FXC enabled the gripping of doors without damage and marking. The gripping system put down the doors on an exact position.
