SCHUNK – Hannover Messe

Hannover Messe 2024

Shaping the future together: sustainable and efficient
Visit us in hall 6, booth A26 from April 22nd to 26th. Entrance is free for you.

Shaping the future together: sustainable and efficient

Responsibility and technical progress go hand in hand – in the form of resource-saving and efficient processes in a healthy working environment. We will be presenting automated solutions at the Hannover Messe 2024 that pave the way for this transformation.

Automation is the key for creating a healthy, efficient and responsible industry. Therefore, we are focusing on two main topics this year: "The healthy factory" and "Innovation through Collaboration." The aim is to design a production process that is healthy and economically successful for people and the environment. Innovative automation and digitalization modules play a central role here which SCHUNK aims to collectively advance through the expansion of its expert network and an open culture of exchange."

We are looking forward to personally exchanging ideas with you!

Simple operating concept – EGU and EGK

Application image – EGK

The electric gripper series EGU and EGK enable safe handling processes in a variety of production environments due to individual parameterization capability and different gripping modes. They are based on a standardized, user-friendly functional concept and are future-proof as a result of regular software updates. With their performance data, they can cover a wide range of applications and are therefore the ideal companion for a mechatronic machine concept.

Intelligently automated – 2D grasping kit

The vision-based Application kit from SCHUNK consists of an application-specific selected gripper such as the EGU, a camera system and an industrial PC with pre-installed AI software. All components in the kit are precisely matched to each other and are process reliable. SCHUNK has developed the intelligent kit for a faster entry into autonomous handling of non-position-oriented objects. No prior knowledge of programming or image processing is required to use it. It frees skilled workers from repetitive tasks, creating a healthier and more attractive working environment.

Synergy – sensory clamping force blocks


Through its synergy and expertise in automated machine loading, SCHUNK offers all components for a networked machine in its broad portfolio. Especially for Industry 4.0, the existing 3rd generation TANDEM clamping force blocks are being supplemented with sensory variants that enable automated clamping processes for workpieces in the machine room. The clamping modules provide a perfect basis for automation due to the integrated monitoring of the jaw position and the actuation pressure or clamping status. Control via IO-Link enables simple integration into all common fieldbus systems.

Networking – sensory toolholders iTENDO2

With innovative sensor systems and data transmission, our intelligent clamping devices provide information in real-time and take process reliability to the next level. Another example includes the smart toolholder iTENDO² . It provides real-time data directly from the tool and detects wear at an early stage. In addition to process-reliable machining, the intelligent toolholder ensures a longer tool service life and less waste. With "easy connect" and "easy monitor", SCHUNK provides two enhanced digitalization stages. The extension package iTENDO² easy connect enables simple connection to the machine and to the existing process monitoring system. iTENDO² easy monitor, on the other hand, offers machine operators a straightforward introduction to simple process monitoring.

SCHUNK – a partner with industry expertise

SCHUNK – round cell handling

For the industries of the future, E-Mobility and Electronics SCHUNK designs advanced automation solutions. A highlight in Hannover is the new RCG round cell gripper for the flexible handling of battery cells with a diameter of 46 mm. The gripper can be expanded as required to form multiple gripping units and, in combination with the dynamic linear direct axes, enables reliable high-speed applications.

Hand in hand for a successful tomorrow

"We are convinced that collaboration and openness lead to groundbreaking innovations that sustainable develop the industry." explains Timo Gessmann. This is why we are committed to working together as partners on many levels and pursues an open, approach with a focus on the user. SCHUNK uses platforms such as NVIDIA, the worldwide leading provider of AI computing, to make its products available as digital twins for system simulation. In the innovation ecosystem for artificial intelligence (AI) Ipai, SCHUNK is working on new practical solutions with the key technology. We also want to contribute to the design of a shared digital data space as part of the Manufacturing X initiative, with experts working together to ensure that the digitalization of the industry significantly picks up speed in the coming years.
