Matrix gripper for handling flexible and unstable workpieces

The area gripper is ideal for removing thin and porous workpieces from cutter tables. These applications often require selective removal of patterns. With the matrix gripper, you can very flexibly remove patterns of different sizes and shapes because the gripper’s individual suction points can be controlled separately. Gentle handling of workpieces with different shapes and properties by gripping across the workpiece surface offers advantages in terms of depositing precision, as well as maintaining the appropriate dimensions and shape.

Needle grippers SNG-V-S in slim design

The needle gripper SNG-V-S stands out with its slim design. The intersecting needles create a powerful holding force even with highly unstable workpieces. The gripper inserts several needles into the material in opposing directions, ensuring the workpiece is held securely in the correct position without being damaged. Minimized effective areas mean that even very small parts can be moved reliably.

3D Clamping Solutions

Workpieces with uneven, rounded or curved contours present a new challenge for clamping technology. With clamping solutions from Schmalz, complex components for CNC machining and measurement processes can be clamped without a problem.

Schmalz Suction Cup Balance SSCB

For more flexibility in automated production environments, Schmalz has developed the Suction Cup Balance SSCB: A gripping and clamping system with automated conversion capability for 3D mold surfaces. The Suction Cup Balance SSCB avoids expensive and lengthy conversion times: It adapts flexibly to different and complex shaped components. This allows for smaller lot sizes to be produced in an economical manner.
