乐虎体育官网In the plastic processing industry, molded parts, fibers, plastic films or semi-finished products are produced using granulates or powder. Depending on the requirements, the plastics can be adapted to a wide variety of conditions. Their temperature resistance, elasticity and resistance to chemicals make plastics essential to industrial applications. Thanks to their versatility, plastics are now used in virtually all sectors. Whether as packaging materials and insulation, or for use in the automotive industry, plastics are an important component in all industrial applications.

Schmalz offers vacuum lifters for handling plastics. They relieve operators of the weight of the workpieces and offer ergonomics and efficiency during manual loading of machining tools.
