Edition December 2018
An eventful year has drawn to a close. In this newsletter, we want to review the highlights together with you.
New products as the Area Gripper FXCB enable the collaboration of humans and robots and support stationary tasks, for example in intralogistics.
In times of Industry 4.0, we are of course thinking digital. And even more: we offer specific solutions for the smart factory. We are now summarizing our activities under our new Schmalz Connect product line. For easy selection and fast delivery of standard components, we have launched the Schmalz Select line. This way, you will always find exactly the right product for your application.
Enjoy reading this month’s newsletter. We wish you a relaxing Christmas season and a Happy New Year!

PRODUCTS AND SERVICES
The Cobot Gripper is designed for numerous applications in intralogistics such as end-of-line packaging or pick-and-place applications. With flexible foam as a gripping surface, it can keep for example cardboard boxes or components with structured surfaces and cut-outs as well as three-dimensional exterior shapes of up to eight kilograms safely.
The preferred product range Schmalz Select suits about 80 percent of all standard applications and is available worldwide. Schmalz Select components are on stock at our main warehouse in Germany and are ready to ship. The product range Schmalz Connect makes status data transparent and enables consistent process monitoring.
Working hand in hand with 18 partner companies, Siemens AG has founded “MindSphere World”, a worldwide user organization for the cloud-based open IoT operating system MindSphere. Its aim is to expand the global reach of the ecosystem based on MindSphere. The organization is also designed to afford support to its individual members in developing and improving IoT solutions on the MindSphere platform and in tapping new markets in the digital economy.
We continue to expand our production and logistics capacity at our headquarters in Glatten (Black Forest) and thereby create 200 new jobs. Production, technology and logistics are arranged in our new value stream factory in such a way that as little time as possible passes from order to delivery. As a result, you benefit from shorter order processing and delivery times. The new building will be in use in summer 2019.
