Prepacked Mushrooms & Radish

Simmatic were recently challenged to find a pick and place solution for prepacked mushrooms & radish.
We trialled VMECA’s MC25 Magic Grippers fitted with food grade XP40 Magic Cups.
Here are the results…

The Magic Gripper is unique to the vacuum handling market. This clever innovation from VMECA 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.
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 films, foils, foods, bottles, jars, bags, boxes, glass, steel, wood or laminates…
Ask Simmatic about VMECA’s Magic Gripper pick and place solutions.

Where systems need multiple points of contact with several 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 simplifying installation.

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.
