Food safe, lightweight and efficient are just a few of the key features of the new SFG floating vacuum gripper from our German partner Schmalz. Its design allows you to move quickly and safely fragile products with a structure, such as biscuits, waffles and other confectionery.
J. Schmalz GmbH has developed a modular, compact vacuum gripper for dry food. The suction cup is made from FDA approved silicone and can therefore be used in direct contact with food. The soft and flexible material of the suction cup ensures a delicate grip of the food with minimal pressure on the surface, which means that even textured surfaces covered with chocolate can be easily moved.
The SFG floating vacuum gripper from Schmaltz includes a base body with a compressed air connection used for flexible food handling. The body also has a connection for an exhaust valve, a suction cup and a flange for the robot. The compact and lightweight design of the gripper allows it to work at high speeds in the processes of sorting your confectionery products on conveyor belts or during product packaging. If necessary, the process of replacing the suction cup is very fast, without using of any tools. This allows you to run the system quickly and without stops!
