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 for the packaging industry include:


New Materials: Silicone SI-MD and SI-HD

Schmalz will also present new materials developed specially for the food and beverage industry: Bellows suction cups made from SI-MD silicone can be picked up by metal detectors. If suction cups are not replaced in time and tear, any undesired material in the food can be immediately detected. Suction cups made from SI-HD (heavy-duty silicone) are also suitable for the food and beverage sector. They are extremely wear resistant and can be used when particularly high durability is required. Both materials are FDA compliant

Suction Cups for Packaging

Layer gripping system SPZ

The layer gripping system SPZ-M can reliably grip layers of cans and glass of different sizes and shapes without damaging them. Users thus achieve high throughput and save time because the system does not need to be retooled when products are changed.

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:


Gripper for small load carriers

At picking workstations, small load carriers have to be moved quickly and in large quantities. For these areas, the flexible box gripper for the vacuum tube lifter Jumbo is particularly effective. It significantly improves the ergonomics of the workstation and boosts efficiency.
