Vacuum Technology for Automation

Schmalz offers a wide range of vacuum components for an even wider range of industries. From suction cups to mounting equipment to vacuum generation, customers can obtain all components needed for a vacuum system from a single source. Our product spectrum include:


App for Parameterizing NFC-Enabled Field Devices

With the Schmalz ControlRoom app, all Schmalz NFC-enabled field devices are now not only readable but also writable. This means that on the smartphone, the user can easily and quickly parameterize Schmalz field devices or transfer values from one device to another. This reduces set-up times by up to 75 percent.

With the app, the electric vacuum and pressure switch VSi , as well as the compact terminal SCTMi and the electrical vacuum generator ECBPi can be parameterized.

Ready-To-Connect Gripping Systems

Layer and area gripping systems as well as ready-to-connect suction spiders are used as end-of-arm tooling on portals and robots. The vacuum grippers can be adapted to almost any handling situation. A visit to the Schmalz stand is also worthwhile for visitors to the parallel Cemat.

Further product highlights

Vacuum Suction Cups

  • Our product range includes a variety of suction cups with various shapes, sizes and materials, providing the right suction cup for every application. Suction cups consist of a elastomer part and a connection nipple.

Compact Ejectors

  • Integrated suction and blow off valves
  • Integrated filter and vacuum switch
  • Optional air saving function and functions for energy and process control

Area Gripping Systems and End Effectors

  • Universal area gripping systems
  • Modular system for end effectors
  • Ready to connect to a huge range of robot applications

Special Grippers

  • Special grippers can be used for applications in which regular suction pads cannot generate a vacuum. Schmalz offers a variety of special grippers with various shapes, sizes and principles of operation.

Switches and System Monitoring

  • Devices for system monitoring are crucial to ensure the safe operation of a vacuum system. Schmalz offers a wide range of switches, measuring and control devices, as well as warning devices.

Valve Technology

  • Valves are used to control the vacuum as well as the compressed air. The right valves can increase both the process reliability and the cost-effectiveness of the vacuum system.

Vacuum Lifters and Crane Systems for Manual Processes

Vacuum lifters can help achieve ergonomic and efficient processes. The vacuum lifter relieves the user of the weight of the workpiece, which helps prevent injuries due to the continual lifting and moving of heavy loads. Our highlights at this year's trade show include:


Further product highlights


  • Workpieces up to 300 kg
  • Tube lifter JumboErgo for the dynamic handling of bulky workpieces.


  • Workpieces up to 50 kg
  • One-hand operation for rapid movement processes

Crane Systems and Jib Cranes

  • Aluminum crane systems and jib cranes for indoors
  • Optimally adjustable to the nominal lift capacity of the vacuum lifters
  • Outstanding low-friction operation and low moving mass

JumboSprint EX

  • Compact workpieces up to 250 kg
  • Rotating operator handle for precise operation
  • For use in areas where there is a risk of explosion
