Extra-large, flat suction cups provide sheet handling flexibility - TheFabricator.com

Piab has introduced a new line of extra-large, flat suction cups designed to handle various product sheets securely in manufacturing environments.

The XLF line of suction cups is available in four different diameters: 150, 200, 250, and 300 mm. All sizes are similarly designed with an aluminum plate molded into 60-degree Shore nitrile-PVC rubber. The material, which is free of PWIS and silicone, does not leave behind any marks on the handled product, so no extra cleaning is required.

The cups feature a double-lip design to increase resistance to tearing or overload. They can be used in a customized mounting frame or lifting device. Vacuum sensing and quick product release features can be added. Built-in cleats provide maximum suction cup gripping. The cups can handle weight up to 1,100 lbs., as well as shear force of up to 800 lbs. during vertical handling.
