Vacuum Technology for Robotics

Gripping Solutions from Schmalz for Cobots & Lightweight Robots

Small and light robots with payloads of up to 25 kilograms are becoming increasingly popular in numerous applications, even in small and medium-sized companies. After all, they are much cheaper than classic industrial robots, can be programmed without specialist knowledge and can work hand in hand with people as so-called cobots. Tailor-made gripper systems are the prerequisite for the robots being able to be flexibly adapted to almost any task.

Schmalz offers grippers and vacuum generators for all common cobots and lightweight robots on the market, providing individual and optimum solutions for a wide range of applications - easy to select, easy to integrate.

The Right Gripper for Every Task

In order to interact with their environment and perform the tasks, lightweight robots, like all industrial robots, depend on tools - and in many cases these are vacuum grippers. These form the interface to the workpiece and are therefore a decisive part of the overall system. With their help, the robots can pick up, move, position, process, sort, stack and deposit a wide variety of goods and components.

Vacuum gripping systems allow particularly gentle handling of workpieces, a compact and space-saving system design and gripping from above. Precisely because the object does not have to be gripped, the vacuum suction cupenables gapless positioning next to each other.
