J. Schmalz GmbH becomes the first company on the market to develop a new series of vacuum and pressure switches that open up completely new communication possibilities and make processes much more transparent. The VSi version is easy to integrate into systems and makes vital process data visible. The switch communicates with all conventional field-bus systems via IO link and also allows you to readout information using a smartphone.
No trade show without Industry 4.0, no company not preaching the benefits of the intelligent factory, no paper that doesn't aim to bridge the gaps in the network of production and IT processes: Industry 4.0 is the hot topic everywhere in Germany – and it runs the risk of overheating before it really heats up on the user end. Many German companies are finding it hard to come up with concrete applications, while the USA, for instance, is taking a much more pragmatic approach. The vacuum specialist from Schmalz in the Black Forest also left the theoretical discussions behind some time ago, and has been supplying products that provide a whole range of useful data in the field for a number of years now. This has allowed them to satisfy one of the key requirements in making Industry 4.0 a reality.
For constructors and users, the vacuum components catalog from Schmalz has almost become a standard reference work. The company based in the Black Forest has now added more than 700 pages to its main work: Schmalz is now presenting “Vacuum Components – Innovations and Additions 2015” on an additional 120 pages.
Vacuum Gripping Systems
When a customer request arrives at the vacuum specialists Schmalz, a process involving multiple precisely coordinated steps is triggered at headquarters in Glatten. From concept development to engineering and then on to commencement of operations on site, the vacuum experts work hand in hand with the customer. From their perspective, gripping means understanding the customer requests and requirements, grasping the ideas at an abstract level and then implementing them in a customized system solution.
Kömmerling represents the top brand for window profiles and PVC products. The company based in Pirmasens is among the world leaders in the production of plastic sheets and its innovations have been a feature of the sector for a long time. Kömmerling uses suction spiders from the vacuum specialist Schmalz in order to stack the finished sheets from the production line on to pallets. These ensure increased process reliability, protective transport and higher throughput.
Develey Senf & Feinkost GmbH is currently a hive of activity. June to September is gherkin season and up to ten production lines are running in parallel at the Pfarrkirchen plant in Lower Bavaria. Each day between 200 and 250 tons of cucumbers are processed to make pickled gherkins, which then have to be palletized and shipped. For the past year, Develey has been using the vacuum layer gripping system SPZ Forklift from J. Schmalz GmbH together with a pallet truck to carefully handle the jars. This method has enabled the gourmet food specialist to optimize its material flow and make work stations more ergonomic.
Vacuum Handling Systems
For some time now, the market for cranes has been dominated by the established manufacturers of steel crane systems for transporting heavy loads ranging up to several tons. Over the last few years, however, the sector for smaller load capacities of under a ton has been experiencing some extremely dynamic development. What this sector requires are manually controlled systems that are responsive and ergonomic. The vacuum and handling technology specialist J. Schmalz GmbH was one of the first manufacturers to launch a fully developed system of lightweight aluminum crane systems back in 2006. The company has experienced continuous growth in the sector.
The automotive industry has felt the effect of changing demographics. The average age in manufacturing plants is constantly rising, and ergonomic workspaces are therefore becoming more and more important. Vacuum handling systems from J. Schmalz GmbH improve health and safety protection in the sector. The company offers a wide range of solutions that can be used to move a variety of loads such as front windshields, hoods or starter batteries ergonomically and with health and safety in mind.
MEDIKOMP, based in Rastatt, Germany specializes in the production and assembly of complete medical products, with a focus on metalwork. At its Ötigheim site, it produces state-of-the-art, variable operating theaters. To transport the doors and wall panels ergonomically and efficiently, MEDIKOMP uses several handling solutions produced by vacuum specialist Schmalz. The following practical example shows just how successful this partnership is.
Vacuum Clamping Systems
The Dittus carpentry workshop manufactures high-quality wood shop fittings and interior furnishings. To meet its customers exacting demands for quality and delivery times, the company uses a 5-axis CNC woodworking machine from the Italian manufacturer Biesse, with vacuum blocks serving as the clamping solution. But instead of the factory-fitted vacuum blocks, Dittus employs an alternative product from the vacuum specialist Schmalz: The Schmalz blocks are extremely durable, with a modular design and convincing price-performance ratio. Workpieces of varying dimensions are clamped securely and without damage.
Schmalz has developed new vacuum blocks to use with the CNC wood machining centers manufactured by the Italian company Biesse. The vacuum blocks represent a genuine alternative to original replacement blocks for a number of reasons: Not only are they extremely robust and able to hold the workpiece securely in the correct position, they also offer excellent value for money.
In the company's latest brochure, J. Schmalz GmbH informs readers about its innovative vacuum clamping systems for CNC machining. On 32 pages, the clearly organized, richly illustrated brochure provides a comprehensive overview of the options for designing more efficient production processes with the help of a vacuum system.
