Versatile Vacuum Technology
Schmalz manufactures highly efficient vacuum cups, pumps, and ejectors that can be precisely customized for their specific applications. Flotronics is proud to carry a wide variety of Schmalz products to provide our customers with quality solutions for their automation system needs.
Each suction cup comes with an elastomer part and connection nipple. Suction cups are available for handling sheet metal, wood, packaging, plastic films and papers, glass, high-temperature applications, composites, and more.
Generator products can be enabled pneumatically or electrically. These components are lightweight and compact for implementing short cycle times and direct system integration. Components include ejectors, terminals, and complete vacuum units.
Mounting possibilities are endless for integrating suction pads or special grippers into a vacuum system. Mounting components include jointed mountings, spring plungers, suspension rigid/flexible set, suspension fixable FST-C, holders for suction cups and spring plungers, and aluminum sections and connectors.
Vacuum Gripping System
Gripping systems such as area gripping and end effectors can be attached directly to your robot. These systems work particularly well in the packaging industry. Systems are available for automated palletizing, commissioning, and sorting, as well as for packaging, pick and place, and woodworking applications.
Needle & Magnetic Grippers
These special grippers can be used for applications in which regular suction pads cannot generate a vacuum. Magnetic grippers are available for handling of ferromagnetic workpieces. Needle grippers are for gripping through insertion of needles for handling workpieces that are especially difficult to pick up via suction.
Vacuum Sensing Technology
Schmalz offers vacuum and pressure sensors, mechanic vacuum switches, electronic vacuum pressure switches, measuring and control devices, warning devices, and connectors and adapters for vacuum switches for monitoring your vacuum system.
Vacuum Valve & Control Technology
Valves and compressed air are used to control the vacuum. The right valve components can increase the process reliability and the cost-effectiveness of the system. Components available include solenoid valves, check valves and flow restrictors, touch valves, non-return valves, and manually actuated valves.
Vacuum Pumps & Blowers
Pumps are available for a very high level of vacuum and low flow rate for packaging machines, manual handling steam, or for central vacuum generation in gantry style systems. Vacuum blowers are for high flow rate and low vacuum levels for handling of porous workpieces like cardboard boxes, insulation materials, particle board, or sacks.
