As in the past, integration, digitization and networking continue to be the main drivers for technological advancement. The leading trade show Integrated Automation, Motion & Drives (IAMD) will present components and system solutions for the factory of the future at the Hannover Messe from April 1 to 5. This show will focus on a single topic, industrial intelligence, which is the main theme of this year’s Hannover Messe. For Schmalz, the trade show is the ideal setting for introducing its new developments for vacuum automation and handling, which it will present in Hall 17, Booth E26.
These developments include the new compact ejector family SCPM, which is exceptionally small yet remarkably powerful. This ejector represents an additional vacuum component in Schmalz’s modular system. It consists of a main body that is available in three versions. Depending on the requirements, the user can choose between a Basic, Controlled or Intelligent version. These versions offer various functions, for example to save compressed air or to monitor the process, as well as interfaces such as IO-Link and NFC (near field communication) for reading out and parameterizing the devices. In addition, up to 16 ejectors can be blocked to one terminal with a single connection.
