Ready to connect set for many common robot types

In addition to the vacuum generator, the ECBPi handling sets also contain the matching flange as well as connection cables and grippers. This means that the system can be set up quickly and put into operation immediately.

Flexible exchange of the gripper

The suction unit is attached to the vacuum generator by a flange with a bayonet lock. This allows the suction unit to be changed without tools. The suction unit can be replaced by a preconfigured 2-piece or 4-piece unit. In addition, a starter set with 120 parts can be purchased for setting up a freely configurable suction unit.

An intelligent vacuum generator with IO-Link and NFC interface

The IO-Link interface is used to control, regulate, and monitor the handling process. The NFC interface allows the operator to directly transfer data to his or her smartphone for easy access to process information and device settings.

Vacuum generation right on the tool

Electric vacuum generation completely eliminates the need for the costly routing of cables and hoses.

Safe processes are the highest good in the automation of handling operations. Consequently, monitoring of the processes is essential. For these reasons, Schmalz offers the ECBPi intelligent electric vacuum generator. Using an NFC interface, data can be conveniently transferred from the device to an operator's smartphone and read out there.

Condition monitoring helps to reduce the potential for errors in the system and improves overall system availability. With the help of automatic suction power adjustment, the vacuum generator is particularly energy-efficient. This helps to reduce operating costs over total service life.
