The Schmalz modular system for vacuum end effectors (VEE) work with numerous configurations of grippers. Vacuum feed, zone combinations, connection elements, and suction cup connections are available to create a custom end effector for specific needs.
According to a Schmalz press release, highlights of the VEE include fast and cost-effective design for high-speed 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; and use in flexible packaging machines with frequent format changes.
Schmalz said the lightweight VEE promises benefits that include individual configuration, reduced construction and manufacturing effort, and outstanding hygiene properties.
