THE Jumbo multi-gripper is another recent innovation in materials handling solutions by German company J.Schmalz GmbH.
It permits the handling of products with soft and flexible surfaces and is available from Millsom Materials Handling.
The special feature of this gripper is the design of the vacuum gripper system, which allows it to adapt itself to the shape of the object to be lifted. This ensures a high degree of safety and flexibility during handling.
Applications include the handling of non-rigid and oddly shaped products such as cardboard boxes.
Technical data includes:
* Maximum unit capacity is up to 65kg
* Weight of the gripper (without quick-change adapter) is 6kg
* Gripper dimensions 350mm x 280mm x 190 mm (gripper of other sizes can also be supplied).
A quick-change adapter to change gripping heads for other products is available as an option.
Due to the variety of product surfaces, lifting tests should be carried out by Millsom's with the product before purchase of the multi-gripper.
