System Design Procedure

Here, we describe the design procedure for a complete system step by step. In order to make this easier to understand, we have based this system design on a typical example.

A useful tool for the necessary calculations during system design is the Schmalz VacuCalculator, which you can download free of charge from the Schmalz website

The system design steps should be taken in the following order:

  1. Calculation of Forces
  2. Suction pad selection
  3. Mounting element selection
  4. Vacuum hose and distribution
  5. vacuum generator selection
  6. solenoid control valves
  7. vacuum switches and system monitoring
