Custom Vacuum Suction Cups for Glass Working

The vacuum specialist Schmalz has developed new suction cups for grinding glass workpieces on flat table machines produced by the Japanese manufacturer Bando Kiko.


Schmalz Suction Cup Balance SSCB

For gripping and clamping of 3D mold surfaces in the production Schmalz has developed the Suction Cup Balance SSCB. It is gripping and clamping system in one and therefore is very flexible.


Powerful Vacuum Blocks for Clamping Solid Wood Workpieces

J. Schmalz GmbH has produced a new range of aluminum vacuum blocks for machining structured solid wood workpieces. The hose-free vacuum clamping system for CNC machining centers with a console table ensures the workpiece is held securely in place, enabling high precision in the production process.


Aluminum Vacuum Blocks from Schmalz: A Strong Hold on Shear Forces

The machining of solid core plastic sheets and hardwood workpieces requires high cutting forces. This posed a challenge for the Eibl joinery firm, who found that workpieces kept slipping during the clamping process, thereby jeopardizing a safe machining process. Help finally came in the form of a solution provided by vacuum specialist Schmalz. Efficient aluminum vacuum blocks ensure the sheets are held securely in place and control the shear forces that are at play, allowing rapid and reliable processing.


Schmalz vacuum blocks for CNC woodworking machines from Biesse: The innovative alternative

The Dittus carpentry workshop manufactures high-quality wood shop fittings and interior furnishings. To meet its customers exacting demands for quality and delivery times, the company uses a 5-axis CNC woodworking machine from the Italian manufacturer Biesse, with vacuum blocks serving as the clamping solution. But instead of the factory-fitted vacuum blocks, Dittus employs an alternative product from the vacuum specialist Schmalz: The Schmalz blocks are extremely durable, with a modular design and convincing price-performance ratio. Workpieces of varying dimensions are clamped securely and without damage.


Schmalz Offers Cost-Effective Alternative to Original Replacement Blocks

Schmalz has developed new vacuum blocks to use with the CNC wood machining centers manufactured by the Italian company Biesse. The vacuum blocks represent a genuine alternative to original replacement blocks for a number of reasons: Not only are they extremely robust and able to hold the workpiece securely in the correct position, they also offer excellent value for money.
