Latest innovation for Magic Grippers

Introducing VMECA’s latest innovation for Magic Grippers – a two-fold silencer. This latest technology from VMECA has transformed the MC20 and MC23 Magic Grippers, giving them both the option to fit a two-fold silencer for body types A, B, C and D

Key features:

  • Considerable noise reduction
    • New version: MC23SD (twofold silencer) 58dBa   –   Previously: MC23D (plug type) 70dBa
  • Significantly lighter than other Magic Gripper options
    • New version: MC20SD (twofold silencer) 60g     –     Previously: MC20D (plug type) 80g
  • This reduction in weight will make a robot’s payload lower, resulting in the capability to achieve a higher pick and place rate.

About VMECA’s Magic Grippers

The Magic Gripper is unique to the vacuum handling market. This latest innovation for Magic Grippers, takes the already very successful configurable Magic Cup and offers it coupled directly to a carefully measured vacuum source so, a tailored gripper specific to the project’s demands can be created from one line of products, the Magic Gripper.

The gripper only evacuates the vacuum between the built-in vacuum cartridge to the cup face, giving an instant response once supplied with compressed air. Because the size of the gripper can be honed to the application, it’s not wasteful with energy due to oversizing, equally, when large flows are required, the body allows full bore flow through it with no restrictions associated with pipework and fittings.

Handling bottles, jars, bags, boxes, films, foils, foods, glass, steel, wood or laminates, Simmatic Automation recommend VMECA’s Magic Gripper for pick and place. Where systems need multiple points of contact several cups, each magic gripper is generating its own vacuum and is working independently, so a cup failure or poor contact from one cup doesn’t compromise the other cups. For a complete end of arm solution, a dedicated aluminium extrusion not only presents the gripper, it also acts as an air distribution manifold, further reducing the requirement for fittings simplifying installation.

Here are VMECA’s Magic Grippers using XP suction lips and new softer grip silicon bellows to lift the product. A multi head collation gripper maximises the pick and place rate…

Eco-friendly Materials

The Magic Gripper can be redeployed onto different machinery rather than scrapped, though when that’s not possible, a recent study found that 95% of the materials used to produce the Magic Gripper are recyclable, so if a machine or robot reaches obsolescence you can be certain of the end-of-life impact of the gripper is minimal.
