Vacuum Technology for Nacelle Production
In nacelle production, vacuum technology is used for tasks such as removing the nacelles from the transport rack or positioning them for final assembly. The nacelle cladding weighs up to 4,000 kilograms and is made of complex structures which the suction cups must flexibly adapt to.
Schmalz’ extensive range of suction cups offers the right solution for any application. The suction cups are mounted on gimbals or spring-mounted to suspend them from the lifting device. Redundant vacuum systems, large vacuum reservoirs and additional mechanical safeguards ensure maximum safety. In addition, individual devices allow precise positioning of the components.
