Modular System for Quick and Cost-Effective Designing of Vacuum End Effectors

  • Flexible system design with perfectly coordinated parts
  • Variable number of suction pads and variable suction pad distances
  • Hose-free vacuum distribution
  • FDA-compliant polyphenylsulfon material (PPSU)
  • Designed for high-speed applications with accelerations up to 10g (100 m/s²)
  • Minimizes configuration and production time by more than 80%
  • Reduces manufacturing costs by up to 75%


Applications

  • 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
  • Use in flexible packaging machines with frequent format changes
