In the Jumbo Low-Stack, Schmalz has developed a solution that lets the user pick up and put down workpieces near the ground while maintaining an upright posture. Its new operating concept is an application-specific special feature: The user controls upward and downward movement simply by turning a vertical handle, which glides through his or her hand during lifting. That gives the user complete control throughout the entire lifting process. Furthermore, Schmalz has equipped the Jumbo Low-Stack with a new release function that eliminates the residual vacuum between the gripper and the workpiece. With this new feature, the user can now release the suction cup from the workpiece without exerting any extra force.
Various suction cups for gripping different workpieces safely are available. The quick-change adapter makes it easy to adapt them to the application: Double suction cups, round vacuum grippers or four head suction cups – Schmalz offers the right suction cup for every size and level of workpiece stability.
The Jumbo family is characterized by its lift tube, which contracts and extends when lifting and lowering the load. For the Jumbo Low-Stack, Schmalz has developed a variable lifting unit. The stroke has a range of 1400 to 800 millimeters and can be freely selected in 100 millimeter increments. It allows users to adapt the new handling solution to their applications in the optimal way.
The Jumbo Low-Stack complements the current range of vacuum tube lifters, which provide ergonomic solutions for frequent and fast lifting and moving of workpieces during machine loading and in shipping and commissioning areas. The lifting unit, operator handle, suction cup and vacuum generator can be configured according to customer wishes.
