SCHUNK ensures safe and profitable grippers,
for storage batteries for electric mobility as well.
Because handling technology is a critical issue.
Picking, stacking, feeding cells, forming packs
and module assembly – all these operations are
subject to the highest safety and quality require-
ments and short cycle times.
And what is essential here?
• Compactness: The goal is to keep the package
space in electric vehicles as small as possible.
As a consequence, during assembly, all com-
ponents must be precisely placed and joined.
SCHUNK helps.
• Safety and quality during the entire handling
process: The component ready for installation is
largely determined by the production process.
And the quality of the complete system depends
on the reliability of many highly sensitive com-
ponents. SCHUNK gripping technology promotes
these standards.
• Fast and profitable processes for mass produc-
tion: The entire process must meet the require-
ments of the automobile industry as regards
reliability, flexibility and cycle times. SCHUNK
has translated these requirements into products
– for more than 60 years. SCHUNK is a member
of the Elektromobilität Süd-West cluster and, to-
gether with partners from industry and research,
contributes to Germany’s e-mobile future in the
AutoSpEM project supported by the Federal
Ministry of Education and Research.
