National Cashew Day

November 23rd is National Cashew Day.

This week we’re celebrating National Cashew Day by highlighting VMECA’s compact vacuum solution, The Magic Gripper paired with Magic Vacuum Cup attachments, picking and placing prepacked cashew nuts and carton boxes. Here at Simmatic we will always help businesses choose the right product from our ranges.
If you are gripping, moving, holding, pushing, pulling, lifting or lowering Simmatic have the products and the knowledge to deliver a solution. Challenge us with your difficult to handle products. We can show you how to solve all your industrial vacuum handling applications.

VMECA’s Magic Gripper is unique to the vacuum handling market.

This clever innovation takes the already very successful configurable Magic Cup and offers it coupled directly to a carefully measured vacuum source, resulting in a tailored gripper, specific to the project’s demands. Handling: pre-packed items, bags, boxes, bottles, jars, films, foils, foods, glass, steel, wood or laminates.

The Magic Gripper only evacuates vacuum between the built-in vacuum cartridge to the cup face, giving an instant response once supplied with compressed air. The size of the gripper can be honed to the application so, 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.
Some systems need multiple points of contact and cups. Each Magic Gripper generates its own vacuum and works independently, so a cup failure or poor contact from one cup doesn’t compromise 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 and simplifying installation.

For all your pick and place applications, contact Simmatic Automation Specialists Ltd and ask us about VMECA’s Magic Grippers and Magic Cup technology. Follow this link to Simmatic’s YouTube channel and subscribe to watch our handling solutions videos.

Did you know?

November 23rd is National Cashew Day. The cashew is a boxing glove shape nut that grows at the end of the cashew apple. Unlike other nuts, cashews don’t grow within the fruit, they grow on the outside and hang from the bottom of the apple. The cashew apple is a fruit from the cashew tree which is native to North Eastern Brazil.
