Magnetic gripper for handling without vacuum
3rd Quarter 2018, Pneumatic systems & components


SMC has added to its gripper range with the launch of the MHM-X6400, which uses a magnet for the handling of steel plate, without the need for vacuum. Ideal for workpieces with uneven or irregular surfaces or featuring holes, this magnetic gripper provides reliable and safe handling at reduced cycle times for improved productivity. It is also ideal for many varied sheet metal handling applications including robotic systems. With a holding force of up to 120 N, the MHM-X6400 continues to hold a workpiece even when air supply is lost completely or pressure drops are experienced, offering peace of mind when it comes to reliable and safe movement of workpieces. Furthermore, with a residual holding force of only 0,3 N or less, cycle times are reduced and productivity output is improved.

Product manager, Brian Abbott explains that the MHM-X6400 fills a void and satisfies a need which vacuum could previously not accommodate. “The initial feedback has been really positive thanks to its clever design that offers flexibility, cost savings, reliability and most of all system safety.” Suitable for a range of transfer applications, the holding force of the MHM-X6400 can be adjusted by simply changing the height of the bumper being used. Made from Fluororubber, the bumper also prevents the workpiece from slipping and causing damage during operations, improving safety. Featuring three mountable surfaces and the option to mount auto switches, the MHM-X6400 offers flexibility and greater process control.
