You’ll find Schmalz used in a wide range of industries to achieve high-suction, mark-free gripping, from manufacturing to chemicals, automotive or solar industries, to warehousing and logistics.
We will work with you to design more efficient production processes that meet 100% of your operational requirements!
Intuitive and easy-to-use, Schmalz vacuum lifters help employees reduce the physical strain caused by repeated movements involved in production, assembly and logistics processes. The faster handling made possible by our solutions also accelerates material flows and leads to increased productivity.
Schmalz’s VacuMaster provides high vacuum to tackle even the heaviest goods weighing up to several tons, whether it is metal sheets, wooden boards, plastic sheets, barrels, windows or glass sheets. For applications where many hands would normally be required, the VacuMaster allows for effortless handling by a single operator while protecting the employee’s health.
Vacuum automation helps you create more efficient process flows. With vacuum technology, sensitive materials such as food products, display glass, electronic components, but also large-format sheet metal for car bodies, can be gently gripped and handled dynamically.
Schmalz aluminium crane systems are designed to work perfectly with vacuum lifters. The light series of crane can lift up to 1 200 kg and can also be used as a stand-alone system. Whether as a jib crane or a crane system, our modular system enables perfect integration into your industrial applications.
Each vacuum system we supply is completely customised to your specific requirements and objectives.
We offer full inspection and maintenance services (incl. leak testing and leak detection) in addition to service contracts.
We support your application with the complete and fast supply of Schmalz components.
