Jointed Mountings Flexolink FLK

Schmalz has developed the Flexolink for the handling of work pieces with sloping surfaces with the aid of large-size suction pads or suction plates.

This jointed mounting type is also able to handle large sheets of materials (such as wood or sheet metal) which may sag when lifted, the Flexolink prevents the sheet from being pulled off due to one-sided forces, and can also be used together with spring plungers to compensate for differing work piece heights and uneven surfaces.

  • Flexible mounting made of high-quality steel with a rubber buffer (vulcanised into position) as a joint
  • Maximum deflection angle limited by a screw-in stop
  • Force is transferred via a shaped metal connection within the joint
  • Flats on upper and lower halves for damage-free installation
  • Connection thread for top connection and in various sizes
  • Deflection (max.) 12°


  • Fully flexible mounting of suction pads and suction plates
  • Automatic reset function to neutral position
  • Reduced wear on suction pads when they are placed on sloping surfaces
  • Vacuum-tight design with integrated protection against damage
