Here at Simmatic we know ALL the challenges encountered when picking up objects of different shapes and sizes. Every industry has their own unique material handling requirements but one thing they all have in common is the demand for efficiency, speed, and a safe working environment.

So why choose V-Grips / Vacuum Gripping Systems?

V-Grips are capable of handling multiple processes, whether it’s white goods, pallets, a pattern of products, a layer sheet or jars in the box. This makes an industrial robot multipurpose and capable of numerous disciplines.
The V-Grip does not need to be completely covered; it will pick up by being partially covered. By reducing contact between materials and moving parts, you reduce the wear and tear of the system, thus prolonging the lifespan of the machinery and therefore your investment. Using the right handling solutions increases the productivity and efficiency of a business which in turn, alleviates pressure from the team and reduces energy costs.
