The chemical and pharmaceutical industry works with substances that are processed further in other industrial sectors such as the plastics, food and beverage, and automotive industries. Organic and inorganic chemicals, fertilizers, plastics or pharmaceutical products are stored in barrels, sacks or jugs, and constantly present new challenges for handling in this sector.

In order to allow safe handling of hard-to-grip elements, Schmalz offers vacuum solutions for a wide variety of applications in the chemical and pharmaceutical sectors. Manual vacuum lifting devices ensure ergonomic, safe lifting when handling barrels and sacks. Even in explosion protection zones where special safety measures make handling even more difficult, vacuum lifting devices from Schmalz offer safety and reliability.

Gripping and Palletizing without Damage
When handling chemicals, operators must be particularly careful that no tears or holes form in the sacks, allowing substances to leak out. The tube lifter JumboSprint enables operators to lift loads safely, particularly when handling sacks made of sensitive materials like paper.

Resistance to Chemicals
Contact with salts, vapors and chemicals can make many materials porous and no longer usable. Schmalz suction cups made of specially developed materials are resistant to chemicals, meaning that they offer a far longer service life than other suction cups.

Handling multiple workpieces simultaneously
In order to achieve increasingly short cycle times, handling processes must be optimized and reduced to a minimum. Vacuum lifting devices from Schmalz can be adapted to the specific application to allow simultaneous handling of multiple workpieces.

Damage-free handling
When handling chemicals, operators must be particularly careful that no tears or holes form in the containers, allowing substances to leak out. Schmalz vacuum lifting devices offer safe, reliable handling of hard-to-grip containers such as jugs and buckets.

Resistance to chemicals
Contact with salts, vapors and chemicals can make many materials porous and no longer usable. Schmalz suction cups made of specially developed materials are resistant to chemicals, meaning that they offer a far longer service life than other suction cups.

Heavy and unwieldy
Vacuum lifting devices allow heavy, unwieldy barrels to be moved ergonomically. The barrels are lifted from above, but the gripper must not be on the bunghole.

Resistance to oils and chemicals
Contact with oils, vapors and chemicals can make many materials porous and no longer usable. Suction cups from Schmalz are made of specially developed materials that are resistant to chemicals to provide significantly longer service lives than other suction cup.
