Schmalz FXCB Area Gripping System - Suction Cups


The FXCB Area Gripping System is suitable for a wide variety of internal logistics applications – especially in collaboration with cobots. Common areas of application include Pick & Place tasks and end-of-line packaging. This version of the FXCB gripper comes with suction cups, which serve as an ideal sealing element for use with uneven workpieces. Versions with sealing foam are also available. Pneumatic vacuum generation is integrated into the Area Gripping System and is driven by energy-efficient Schmalz SEP ejector modules.

Low dead weight

Increased effective robot payload thanks to a lightweight, dynamic design and 3D-printed housing.

Integrated pneumatic vacuum generation

The vacuum generator is integrated into the housing in the form of energy-efficient ejector modules.

Integrated into Industry 4.0

The integrated, electronic vacuum and pressure switch measures and monitors the negative pressure in the system. The corresponding process data can be read out via an IO-Link interface.

Choice between different sealing elements

The FXCB offers the right sealing element for almost any workpiece - for different surfaces and geometries, porous or airtight workpieces, and for workpieces in undefined positions.

The paletization of cartons and boxes is often the starting point for automating processes in a given factory. In combination with collaborative robots, Schmalz offers the FXCB Area Gripping System specifically for palletizing applications. A key feature of the gripper is its advanced 3D-printed housing, which contributes significantly the surprisingly low weight of the entire gripping system. The FXCB System weights in at just around 2 kg, thereby increasing the effective payload of the attached robot.

In order to achieve an optimal seal, Schmalz offers a choice between a high-performance sealing foam with adhesive film or suction cups. The vacuum itself is generated by the SEP ejector modules integrated into the housing. For maximum reliability, an electronic vacuum and pressure switch for measuring and monitoring negative and positive pressure is integrated into the system. In combination with the NFC interface for easy and direct access to device data via smartphone, the FXCB can be perfectly integrated into the modern Industry 4.0 environment.
