The automotive industry is one of the most important commercial sectors, with a densely networked supplier industry. Generally, the industry is separated into vehicle manufacturers, component suppliers and line builders. Due to the ever growing number of different variants and increased manufacturing capacities with plants in new markets such as China, vehicle manufacturers are increasingly focused on global platform strategies. As part of these strategies, plant concepts and parts can be reused, which then increases the numbers of parts produced.

Vacuum components from Schmalz are generally used in automated production lines, in particular in press shops body shops or durint the final assembly. In addition to automation technology, Schmalz also offers ergonomic vacuum lifting devices for manually handling heavy or unwieldy parts.
