Schmalz Brings Its Efficient Handling Solutions to Modex 2016

Schmalz Inc. is set to showcase handling solutions for a multitude of intra-logistics applications at Modex, Atlanta (April 4 to 7), at booth 2662.

The box gripper for the Jumbo vacuum tube lifter, for instance, allows for the ergonomic handling of standard small load carriers. One of the areas in which it is put to use is in picking workplaces in the automotive industry. There, small load carriers have to be moved quickly and in large quantities. The integrated lifting slots in the crates are used to pick them up with maximum reliability. At an average weight of 20 kilograms per small load carrier and 50 picks an hour, the vacuum tube lifter transports a total load of 8 tons per shift, providing enormous support for the user in this heavy task.

As the logistics industry continues to see rapid growth, automated palletizing,  ommissioning and sorting solutions for cartons and other goods are becoming more and more important. This has also led to increased requirements for efficient, automated handling technology. At Modex, Schmalz will showcase the FXP vacuum area gripping system, which ensures maximum flexibility and reliability when handling workpieces of different shapes and sizes. Just one gripper can handle multiple workpieces with a width up to 20 mm simultaneously with speed and reliability. The vacuum generation occurs directly in the gripper, providing increased energy efficiency. Thanks to its low weight, the FXP area gripper is ideal for use on robots.

Furthermore, in intralogistics, whole product layers often have to be palletized and de-palletized. The SPZ-M layer gripping system with mechanical gripping support is perfectly suited to this task. This solution allows the user to handle intermediate layers, pallets, cardboard boxes, crates and film packaging with maximum efficiency. The suction area is available either as flexible foam or single suction pads and fully adapts to the structure of the workpiece and the task. By handling whole product layers rationally, the cycle time can be drastically reduced to a minimum.

A variety of vacuum components including suction pads, vacuum generators and control and monitoring components completes the range showcased at the booth. Schmalz offers users the chance to put together their own individual automation solutions from the range.
