Dale Simmonds’ Product Focus

Today Dale Simmonds’ product focus is about Magic Grippers…

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 a project’s demands can be created from one line of products.

Magic Grippers only evacuate 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 perfected 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.

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

We hope you enjoyed Dale Simmonds’ product focus about Magic Grippers.
