Vacuum Area Gripping System FXP/FMP

Universal grippers for handling different workpieces

The vacuum area gripping systems FXP and FMP guarantee maximum flexibility during automated handling processes. This universal gripper makes automated palletizing, depalletizing, order picking and sorting of the most varied goods in varying dimensions with only one gripper possible. Workpieces made from the most varied materials, such as carton, wood, metal sheets (dry) and plastic, both with and without cut-outs, can be handled.


Universal gripper for handling workpieces regardless of size, geometry, material and surface
Handling of workpieces made from various materials, such as wood (coated or rough sawn), packaging (boxes, bags or cans), metal sheets, glass, plastics, CFRP, etc.
Suitable for swiveling operations and high accelerations
For rigid workpieces with rough and structured surface
Minimal operating costs (because of the option of electrical vacuum generation), especially for applications with multiple grippers
Ideal for use on robots due to its low weight
Superior power
The FXP/FMP series from Schmalz generates an average of 86 % more suction force than comparable grippers on the market
Unique flexibility
Handling of workpieces from 20 mm width, regardless of material, geometry, surface and position
High energy efficiency
Flow optimization makes more efficient use of the energy employed, which sustainably reduces operating costs
Dynamic handling
Maximum process acceleration and minimum system costs through the use of smaller robots
Low sound level
Low-noise operation with a sound level of only 74 dB(A)
  • Aluminum basic profile (1) with side T-slots for sensors and an integrated air supply for separation
  • Vacuum booster (2) for quicker evacuation; valve film (3) for the quick change of valve type and size
  • Sealing element (4): suction cup with push-in function or sealing foam with adhesive film
  • Optional integrated slide-in vacuum valve (5) for fast evacuation and high suction volume
  • End cover with function integration (6): compressed air connection, vacuum manometer; vacuum switch and control valves optional
  • Type FXP with integrated multistage ejector; type FMP with connection piece (7) for external vacuum generation
