Creating a vacuum without compressed air
4th Quarter 2018, Pneumatic systems & components


The ECBP electrical vacuum generator from Schmalz is ideal for handling airtight and slightly porous workpieces. It features an integrated speed control function, which regulates the power of the pump to suit the process or workpiece. Moving porous workpieces such as cardboard requires considerable suction capacity and thus considerable energy. Airtight materials, on the other hand, require less power, meaning the user can reduce the speed. This degree of flexibility makes the vacuum generator extremely energy efficient.

As the vacuum is generated without compressed air, the ECBP is particularly useful in mobile robotics, and its fully automated small parts handle just as well for stationary handling tasks. Different grippers from the Schmalz VEE modular system can be attached simply and easily via integrated flanges.

Via a data interface, the ECBP provides the user with energy and process data via IO-Link from the machine to the cloud. The condition monitoring function recognises deviations in the vacuum supply, thus reducing faults and downtimes. This considerably increases the reliability of the system. Furthermore, the user has various options for adapting the pump capacity to the handling process. The ECBP can be parameterised directly on the device, using an NFC-enabled mobile terminal or via IO-Link in the control centre.

The ECBP weighs just 700 grams and is designed so that there are no interfering contours. The electrical connection to the pump is established via an 8 pin M12 connector. The maximum suction capacity is up to 12 litres per minute at a maximum current strength of 0,7 amperes.
