Sack Suction Gripper SG for Handling of Sacks

POSTED 05/06/2015

The Schmalz SG sack suction pad picks up the sack from the surface of the workpiece and grips it securely. The suction pad is suitable for all sack types and can handle sacks with both stable and unstable contents. The sack suction pad is equipped with a special sealing foam, which allows it to precisely conform to the shape of the workpiece. A support grid within the suction pad prevents the sack from tearing or being sucked in.
