Two strong partners


The new MATCH platform from Zimmer Group and Schmalz combines the best of two gripper worlds. This collaboration created something unique: a modular system that the customer can use to meet various requirements and handle diverse applications in robotics. Furthermore, in addition to their accumulated problem-solving expertise, both companies offer a global sales network for support and service.

Applications as varied as the system

Whether mobile and collaborative robotics or fully automated applications, just one flexible system gives the user access to a nearly unlimited range of uses from production and assembly to warehouse logistics, shipping and even laboratory automation.

Typical tasks for the system include pick-and-place, order picking, packaging and palletizing, checking and testing. Various mechanical and vacuum grippers can be selected corresponding to the workpiece and handling task. If the requirements change, the system can be quickly and easily adapted.

Standardized connection and communication

Appropriate for all common lightweight robots – an ideal system for cobots and conventional 6-axis robots.


Any robot, any gripper, any end effector. High flexibility thanks to an extensive portfolio.

Simple installation

Mechanical connection by quick-changer and configuration using a setup assistant.

Full process control

Collect, evaluate and visualize added-value data, including cloud connection.

Compatibility with all common robots

The MATCH portfolio opens up countless application possibilities in all industries. No matter which modular solution you choose, we promise: It‘s a MATCH.
Smooth interaction between robot and gripper is guaranteed by the smart connection concept.
