Vacuum Layer Gripping System SPZ for Palletizing and Depalletizing Various Product Layers

POSTED 05/06/2015

The vacuum layer gripping system SPZ consists of modularly connected large-area grippers, which allow for easy adjustment of the gripper to meet individual requirements. The suction area consists of flexible sealing foam which adapts to fit the contours of each workpiece perfectly. The layer gripping system is equipped with check valves, which detect and seal off unused parts of the suction area. This technology enables you to lift small layers or layers with gaps.
