Sealing Foams for Area Gripping Systems

Universal sealing element for handling different workpieces

Schmalz sealing foams are used on vacuum gripping systems from Schmalz such as the area gripping system FXP/FMP and the area gripping system SBX-C as well as on grippers from other manufacturers. The advantage of sealing foams is that you can handle different workpieces with minimum leaks using the same gripper. This allows you to move workpieces with unevenness, roughness and gaps dynamically and efficiently.

Features at a glance:

  • Long service life, up to 10 times longer than competitive foams
  • Quick rising behavior
  • Little variation in the quality of technical properties throughout the service life
  • Easy to replace with no cleaning required for time savings of up to 90 percent
