Lightweight Layer Grippers ZLW

max. 20 kg
max. 850 x 650 mm


Layer gripping system for automated EOL palletizing processes with lightweight robots
Feeding workpiece layers into production
Pick-and-place in the production process
Handling of various workpieces such as packages, packaging, pouches, jars, cans and buckets
Low gripper weight
Increased process efficiency and reduced initial costs through the use of robots with lower lift capacity
Variable suction area
Gripper design based on the workpiece layer
High energy efficiency
Minimized vacuum generation power due to suction grid design optimized for particular workpieces
Ready-to-connect palletizing solution
Optimally coordinated gripping system incl. vacuum generation and controllable valves
  • Rigid flange (1) for connection to common robots and portals
  • Optional: Spring-mounted flange to compensate for height differences in the workpiece layer (2)
  • Venting valve (3) to protect the gripper from overpressure
  • Gripper with sealing element made of plug-in suction cups (4) or sealing foam (5)
