Automated Handling of Warped Aluminium Sections with the FXC Large-Area Vacuum Gripping System

The video shows a gripping system that consists of four FXC large-area grippers with integrated vacuum generation. The compact and easy to install large-area grippers are equipped with numerous individual bellows suction pads. With their 2.5 corrugations, the suction pads fit flexibly to the structure of the warped sections. If individual suction pads are not applied, check valves prevent leackages in the system. 5 sections are taken up by a band and then transferred and palletised in each of two suction cycles. Narrow bars are used as separators between the individual pallet layers to prevent direct contact between the aluminium parts. The gripper system has a second vacuum circuit and four additional suction pads attached to the outside of the gripper system for this handling procedure. Two compact ejectors that are particularly energy-efficient thanks to an air-saving function generate the vacuum.
