Selection by Workpiece

There follow some examples of applications to assist selection of the appropriate special grippers:

WorkpieceSchmalz Special Gripper
TypeProduct Properties
Solar components such as wafers and solar cellsFloating suction cups SBS 
  • Low-contact handling
  • Integrated vacuum generation
Wafer grippers SWGm 
  • Extremely fast and precise handling
  • Integrated vacuum generation with high suction rate
  • Product dimensions especially for wafer sizes 125x125 mm and 156x156 mm
Thin workpieces such as paper and foilsFloating suction cups SBS 
  • Low-contact handling
  • Integrated vacuum generation
  • Absorption of lateral forces by elastomer buffer on the underside
  • Separation function during destacking
Complex steel parts such as perforated sheets and laser cut metalMagnetic grippers SGM 
  • Handling by means of a permanent magnet
  • Absorption of lateral forces by friction ring
Delicate components such as printed circuit boardsFloating suction cups SBS 
  • Low-contact handling
  • Integrated vacuum generation
  • High leakage compensation
Battery components such as anodes, cathodes and separatorsComposite grippers SCG 
  • Integrated vacuum generation
  • Higher volume flow for a secure grip on even porous workpieces
  • Large contact surface for delicate handling
Unstable and porous workpieces such as foam and insulation materialsNeedle grippers SNG
  • Needle grippers with variable needle stroke that can be adjusted for individual workpiece geometries
Fabrics that are unstable or have a "suck through" effect such as compositesComposite grippers SCG 
  • Integrated vacuum generation
  • High volume flow for a secure grip on even porous workpieces
  • Large contact surface for delicate handling
