The Vacuum System and its Components

Vacuum systems are used as grippers in automated applications. Customers benefit from the comprehensive component program of Schmalz, the vacuum specialist, when designing a vacuum system.


Vacuum suction cups or Special grippers
Interface between vacuum system and workpiece


Mounting elements
Fast and flexible connection of vacuum components to tooling systems


Vacuum generators
Centralized or decentralized vacuum generation by meand of ejectors, pumps or blowers


Switches and system monitoring
Measuring and control components ensure safe operation of the vacuum system


Filters and connectors
Filters protect the vacuum generator; hoses and connectors connect the components

Valve technology
Valves are used to control the vacuum as well as the compressed air (decentralized or centralized)
