Vacuum specialist Schmalz has unveiled numerous “clever” solutions for the automated handling of delicate electronic components. For example, gripping systems that reliably protect delicate components against electrostatic discharge. Electrostatic charges and the resulting uncontrolled electrostatic discharge (ESD) produce irreversible damage to electronic components such as chips or printed-circuit boards.
At the Hannover Messe 2019, J. Schmalz GmbH is presenting innovations for vacuum generation, gripping and smart handling. The solutions represent an important step forward in terms of efficient energy use and automation. As in the past, integration, digitisation and networking continue to be the main drivers for technological advancement. Integrated Automation, Motion & Drives…
