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.

1

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

2

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

3

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

4

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

5

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)
