J. Schmalz - SCG-HSS

The SCG-HSS flow gripper is designed for gentle handling of highly structured, dimensionally stable workpieces with a height difference of up to 25 mm. The gripper consists of two core elements: the integrated vacuum generator and the flexibly adjustable gripping surface. This is realized by a pin curtain that gently adapts to the surface structure of the workpiece and is pneumatically fixed in position. This adaptation to individual workpiece contours eliminates the need for costly set-up times. Thus, handling of workpieces in batch size 1 can be realized with low operating costs. Thanks to the ESD-compliant design, there is protection against uncontrolled electrostatic discharge. This makes the gripper suitable for use in PCB handling as well as for unloading injection molding machines and for packaging processes.
