Vacuum End Effectors VEE

Configuring Rather than Designing

Application:

  • Fast and cost-effective design of vacuum end effectors for highspeed packaging processes
  • Pick-and-place applications with Delta, SCARA and articulated robots
  • Fully automated filling of cardboard boxes in case packers
  • Use in primary and secondary packaging processes
  • Transporting products into top-loading machines as well as in cardboard box and tray aligners
  • Use in flexible packaging machines with frequent format changes
