Anyone who has been missing an individual gripper solution for the manual vacuum tube lifter Jumbo will now find one: Schmalz combines the proven elements of its Tooling System SXT with a new connection, thus introducing the flexible modular component system in the Handling Systems business unit.
Where cases, cartons or sheets have to be ergonomically moved, stacked or deposited, lifting aids such as the vacuum tube lifter Jumbo are often in use. However, any vacuum lifter would only be half as useful without an important system: the crane system. Schmalz proves that the right crane solution plays more than a supporting role.
The digital product file is a new function for the Schmalz ControlRoom app that provides transparency in manual handling. Schmalz is equipping its vacuum lifters and crane systems with identification tags that can be read by your smartphone using a QR code or NFC technology (near-field communication). They gives you immediate access to device-specific information and important servicing and contact data.
Schmalz has added an oval suction plate with a size of 180x90 to its SAOF series. Up to this point, the only gripper solutions available were for the JumboFlex series 20 and 35, with a maximum lift capacity of 20 and 35 kg respectively. The new size means it can also now be combined with the vacuum tube lifters JumboFlex and JumboFlex High-Stack for workpieces weighing up to 50 kg. This new arrival adds another gripper to Schmalz’s JumboFlex modular system. In combination with the new beams, it allows the user to configure double or even four-head suction grippers to optimally meet his or her requirements.
Black Week, Cyber Monday, and the end-of-year rush present a challenge to online retailers. Parcel delivery services rely on additional staff to process the high volume of orders on time. However, hygiene regulations are making workflows even more difficult this year. Fortunately, the JumboFlex provides a remedy. With the vacuum tube lifter, heavy parcels can be sorted, stacked, and loaded quickly, ergonomically, and at the required distance since moving them no longer requires two people.
Schmalz has developed a new silencer box for the vacuum pumps in its EVE 25-50 series. The box is not only more compact than its predecessor, it also protects the vacuum generator from external contamination. The user can now lower the sound level by up to nine decibels, dissipate operating noises in a targeted way and further reduce noise pollution as a result.
J. Schmalz GmbH has expanded its proven VacuMaster Light series. In addition to two pre-configured vacuum lifting devices, a new version with a beam system is now also available to users. Based on a comprehensive modular system, it allows individual product configurations and thus even more areas of application for the vacuum lifting device.
Duravit not only attaches great importance to visual perfection, but also to ergonomic handling solutions during production. Duravit relies on vacuum tube lifters from vacuum specialist Schmalz to pack its beautifully designed ceramic sinks, which weigh up to 35 kilograms, into cardboard boxes after production. This reduces physically strenuous work as well as illness-related absences.
Schmalz has designed a new multi-gripper for the vacuum tube lifters in the JumboFlex series. Thanks to additive production technology, it is particularly light and compact. The multi-gripper is now available in two different formats.
Schmalz is introducing a new generation of area grippers for its vacuum tube lifters in the JumboErgo series. The FMP is hugely versatile and reliably grips heavy workpieces weighing up to 140 kilograms even when only part of the suction area is covered. It replaces the FM gripper. Thanks to its modular design, the FMP also provides a basis for extending the area gripper portfolio for the vacuum tube lifter Jumbo in the future.
