Vacuum pump suction cups play an essential role in the design of every vacuum-handling system, linking the vacuum generator and the workpiece.
Benefits of vacuum pump suction cups:
- Wide selection
- Variety of materials for different use
- Various temperature resistance levels
- Perfect adherence even in the presence of edges and angles
Vacuum Pump Suction Cup Function
A suction pad is a gripper that can be used to handle all sorts of objects of different weights, surfaces, shapes, and dimensions.
When selected correctly, vacuum suction cups can hold and manipulate a wide range of objects in many shapes, sizes, and materials.
Vacuum pump suction cups can hold, lift, or turn virtually any kind of material in the production process. The contact between a suction cup and the object to be handled is soft and light, and the technique is simple and safe.
Main types of vacuum pump suction cups include:
Flat suction pads without cleats
Used for handling flat or slightly rounded, rigid, smooth objects. They withstand lateral forces and can be used for vertical handling.
Flat suction pads with cleats
Used for handling thin, flexible, deformable objects. They increase resistance to lateral forces and horizontal handling.
Suction pads with bellows
Used to handle spherical, cylindrical, or egg-shaped objects. The effect of the technical characteristics increases with the number of bellows. They can be used for gripping objects with height differences, for a ball-joint effect, to lift, and to grip corners or edges.
