Another product that has been added to the Millsom Materials Handling hallmark range is the Schmalz FM gripper.
Many users in the materials handling field may already be familiar with the Schmalz’s Jumbo vacuum tube lifting system that allows easy vacuum lifting of loads. Now Schmalz has released their modular FM gripper that will increase the flexibility to the end user.
The JUMBO FM gripper permits handling of work-pieces and goods of many different types weighing up to 55 kg, even if the gripper is not fully covered by the work-piece. The special sealing mat ensures safe gripping without damage to the work-piece surface, thus opening new opportunities for handling with vacuum. Suitable vacuum tube lifters for use with the new gripper are the JUMBOERGO 45 or 65, equipped with the powerful vacuum blowers SB-L or SB-V.
The FM gripper can be used for handling any loads which are suitably rigid, do not weigh more than 55 kg and cover at least 50% of the lower surface of the vacuum gripper.
The vacuum tube lifter JUMBOERGO 45 or 65 equipped with a large-area gripper system FM can be used to handle many different work-pieces, such as wooden panels with holes, profiled sandwich panels, pallets or even complete layers of narrow strips of wood safely, precisely and economically.
The new FM Grippers have compact dimensions (400 x 120 x 50 mm or 600 x 12 x 50 mm per FM module), low intrinsic weight (10.9 kg or 16.5 kg), high lifting capacity (40 kg or 55 kg) and extremely simple handling, is ideal for use with a vacuum tube lifter.
