Overview of highlights

Modular system

  • Standard holders as a simple and quick solution for a wide range of applications
  • Holder configuration with G, M or NPT threads according to customer requirements
  • Combinations with various vacuum suction cups, spring plungers and decentralized vacuum generators as well as the vacuum switch VSi-HD from the Schmalz product portfolio

Lightweight and slim gripper design

  • Up to 45 percent lighter than other holder systems in use in the automotive industry
  • For highly dynamic processes with maximum output
  • No disruptive contours thanks to functional integration

Flexible use in automotive manufacturing

  • Compatible with all current tooling and quick-change systems for press shops and car body construction
  • Holder HT-SG E for combining vacuum suction cups and decentralized vacuum generation with Schmalz ejector SEAC 10
  • Holder HT-SG I with integrated vacuum generation as a compact, low-maintenance unit
