      Suction cup FC100P Polyurethane 40, 3/8" NPSF female, 0108798


      Item no. 0108798

      • Suitable for slightly domed and flat and oily surfaces, e.g., such as those encountered when handling steel sheets in press processes.
      • Thanks to the high friction of the rubber material, the suction cups can withstand high forces at rapid accelerations in horizontal directions, even on oily surfaces.
      • The suction cups have cleats that prevent thin objects from being disfigured.
      • DURAFLEX® suction cups manufactured in a specially developed material that features the elasticity of rubber and wear resistance of polyurethane. The material does not leave any marks on the objects handled.

        • Suction cups

          • How do I know which lifting forces I need?
            • It depends on the weight of the product that should be lifted and how many suction cups that can be used for the object. Calculate the weight to be lifted per suction cup and then take the weight multiplied with the gravity force (g=9.81) and you have the lifting force needed in Newton (N)

          • How do I know which suction cup to choose?
            • Our recommendation is to start at the application listing to find the products we recommend to different applications. If you have questions please do not hesitate to contact our partners to find the optimum solution.

          • How should Piab suction cups be stored?
          • I have a variation of number of objects to be lifted- how can I make sure to not drop them or to use too much energy? How to optimize this type of system?
            • All suction cups not in contact with an object (open) will draw in a lot of air and demand a larger pump than actually necessary. By using different valves, such as piSAVE sense, in the suction cups, the suction cups will be normally closed until they come in contact with the handled object. Only the cups needed in the specific lifting cycle will be open and flow air. Please see the video piSAVE sense.

          • What is DURAFLEX®?
            • DURAFLEX® is a patented material specially developed to feature the elasticity of rubber and the wear resistance of polyurethane. The DURAFLEX® material is mark-free.
