Intelligent and mobile gripping technology as a key component in autonomous warehouses

Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize such handling processes – from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated fully electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence, that deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production orders at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of vacuum end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.

In traditional warehouses gripping systems are limited to a defined handling task. Electricity and compressed air supply as well as the exchange of data are bound to a certain place. In autonomous warehouses with constantly changing structure of goods, a robot picks the product independently with integrated electrical vacuum generation and wireless data exchange. The complete process is much more flexible and efficient.
