hello handling

A very pleasant companion

Today a good command of English is self-evident. How about your knowledge of technical terms? At regular intervals handling publishes interesting news and translates some vocabulary.

The new CiTi One is an innovative truck to transport goods weighing up to 500 kg easily. Its name stands for its main field of application: deliveries to companies located in inner cities and delivery zones with public traffic. Its silent operation is comfortable for the operator and also pleasant for residents living nearby retail outlets. The truck facilitates unloading of lorries parked at road sides or in pedestrian areas of the cities as well as on markets and fairs. And it literally takes goods to higher levels, because it can easily climb over obstacles such as rough pavement, potholes or lowered curb stones. It is also well suited for all internal transports on bumpy floors or to cover longer distances. The battery powered CiTi One is a very user-friendly truck and moves easily – with load at speeds up to 4,5 km/h and without load at speeds up to six km/h. A driving licence is not required for this truck. It can be operated at temperatures between minus 15 to plus 50 degrees Celsius. It weighs only about 100 kg. The hub drive in the wheel (0,3 kW) is capsulated and maintenance-free. With this drive the truck can move up slopes up to eight percent steep. pb

Holds up its end of the bargain

In automated packaging processes, the gripper used must meet high demands for process reliability and speed. This is especially the case when handling flexible-form packaging with liquid or powdery contents. Automated handling of flexible-form product packaging is one of the biggest challenges in handling technology. On one hand, this is due to the broad spectrum of different designs and materials for bag packaging. On the other hand, this is also due to the combination of non-rigid packaging and loose contents that must be separated and picked at high speeds. Schmalz is meeting this challenge with a pad solution containing four and a half corrugations and intelligent design details: The new SPB4 suction pad series allows the reliable handling of formable product packaging in very dynamic processes of up to 100 cycles per minute. The series uses food-safe SI silicone and conforms to FDA guidelines. The adaptable sealing lip of the suction pad with integrated flow vanes ensures optimal sealing and secure handling of the bag packaging. In dynamic handling processes, lateral forces are absorbed and slipping of the suction pad is avoided. pb
