“Shaping change – digital, networked, innovative”: That’s the slogan that will lure specialists in the fields of distribution, material flow and information flow to Stuttgart, Germany, for the LogiMAT 2017, which will take place from March 14 to 16. J. Schmalz GmbH will use the trade show as a platform to present to the public its comprehensive range of efficient vacuum handling solutions for a multitude of intra-logistics applications.
GLATTEN, 10-Jan-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — Among the spectacles that Schmalz will be presenting in hall 6 at booth 6C05 is a crane system with a heavy-duty chain hoist as well as a responsive column-mounted jib crane. Both crane systems are particularly well suited for use in logistics centers. Various lifting devices can be attached, such as a JumboFlex35 vacuum tube lifter with SAOB-type bellows suction cups. These suction cups conform perfectly to many different geometries and can withstand high lateral forces. The operator of the tube lifter can move items (such as cardboard boxes) up to 35 kilograms in weight ergonomically and at a high cycle frequency. Schmalz also has the perfect lifting solution for loads up to 50 kilograms: the JumboFlex50.
Steady growth in the logistics sector and ever-shortening cycles are raising the demand for efficient, automated handling technology. In Stuttgart, Schmalz will show the FXP vacuum area gripping system. It works flexibly and reliably. A single gripper allows handling of workpieces of a variety of geometries. The vacuum is generated energy-efficiently and directly in the gripper. The FXP is light and thus ideally suited for attachment to a robot. Users can choose among a wide variety of valve types and sizes in order to gently transport even porous and smooth-surfaced workpieces.
Quickly palletizing and de-palletizing whole product layers is just what the SPZ-M layer gripping system with mechanical gripping support excels at. It can be used on pallets, cardboard boxes, crates and foil packaging. For securely gripping differing workpiece contours, Schmalz offers a special foam suction surface as well as single suction cups that conform perfectly to the surface. This increases the operator’s handling reliability and reduces the cycle time.
Schmalz will round out its appearance at the trade fair with vacuum components such as vacuum grippers, vacuum generators, and components for control and monitoring, especially for packaging. Operators can choose among them to assemble the ideal automation solutions to suit their requirements.
