SCHUNK at the Hannover Messe 2018

Gripping system solutions for the automation of the future

Intelligent handling scenarios, autonomously working systems and collaborative applications have one thing in common: They require reliable, efficient and smart components that enable high-level communication.

From April 23 to 27 at the Hannover Messe, showed you solutions for smart gripping trends, Industry 4.0, the collaboration between humans and robots, and assembly automation.

SCHUNK EGP-C Co-act gripper

The first certified industrial gripper for collaborative operation.

With the SCHUNK gripper EGP-C Co-act, the competence leader for gripping systems and clamping technology presents an inherently safe industrial gripper that has been certified and approved by the DGUV for collaborative operation. This simplifies the safety observation for collaborative applications and in turn shortens the expenditure of time.

Product details

Digital Twin
Computer-aided, realistic simulation of
SCHUNK products in real time.

The Digital Twin in practice

A digital twin is the digital form of a real object. The basis is the 3D CAD model, to which all product features, functions and process parameters are assigned – from the material to the sensor system, to the movement and dynamics. As an intelligent 3D model, the Digital Twin facilitates a realistic simulation in a computer-aided simulation environment.
All aspects of the operation and processes can be tested in real time. This facilitates the programming and optimizing of the sequence and the testing of extreme situations before the availability of individual components and modules.

In short: virtual commissioning will be possible before the planning phase.

Virtual production: SCHUNK models digital gripper twins for high-performance assembly

The new standard in assembly automation

The new revolutionary 24V mechatronics range from SCHUNK.

With the new 24 V modular system, SCHUNK is defining a new benchmark in assembly automation. For the first time, complete assembly systems with linear axes, rotary modules and grippers can be implemented entirely using 24 V technology. The reduced maintenance costs, easy combination, high process reliability and the lower operating costs are revolutionary.

Components and systems for an intelligent future

Opportunities upon opportunities are appearing as a result of the digitalization of the working world. Be it in the office or in production – there are practically no spatial limits any more. Data is available worldwide, systems cooperate, applications are extremely flexible.

We're using these opportunities!

To do what? We'll show you from June 19-22 at the Automatica in Munich in hall A5 I booth 502.
