The Schmalz vacuum generator ECBPi is suitable for external and electrical vacuum generation for the lightweight gripping systems SLG.

The use of cutting-edge additive manufacturing processes and materials ensures that the gripper is especially lightweight and robust. The product can handle complex geometries and allows for a fully integrated air supply. That means interfering edges such as vacuum hoses can be avoided and makes the design of the grippers particularly energy-efficient. In addition, the grippers are ideal for operation with lightweight robots and cobots due to their low weight and compact dimensions. The maximum dimensions of the SLG are (LxWxH): 350 x 350 x 250 mm; the maximum workpiece weight is 10 kg.

Schmalz lightweight gripping systems SLG are compatible with all the conventional lightweight robots and cobots available on the market.

They have also been tested and certified by Universal Robots, making them ideal for use with UR robots.
