National Apple Day

National Apple Day is 21st October. So, it’s time to celebrate everything to do with apples!
Simmatic are demonstrating VMECA’s Magic Gripper fitted with the X25 magic cup. Our video highlights the versatility of the MC10D Magic Gripper; not only can it pick and place individual pieces – an apple and a pear, the gripper is also capable of vacuum handling pre-packed cartons of fruit…

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.

Magic Gripper Key Points:

  • Cost efficient
  • Easy to build vacuum systems
  • Variety of suction cups/lips
  • Fast response & excellent performance
  • 73% less energy consumption
  • VMECA multi-stage vacuum cartridge integrated
