Selection guide for Suction cups
Metric   Imperial

Food contact materials (FDA & EU), detectable

A broad program of suction cups to pick directly on different food objects. The material is approved by FDA (FDA 21 CFR 177.2600) and meets EU's regulation EU 1935/2004. All cups are blue and detectable, so small parts of cups that might come loose will be easily discovered by vision cameras and metal detectors. Fittings for cups are also metal detectable and available in acid proof stainless steel (316L) or Food-grade plastic material. Cups and fittings all have a hygienic design in accordance with food standards making them easy to clean. The cups have a “funnel” shape design with very thin lips, but, with a more stable body/bellows. That will allow for excellent grip on food parts with irregular surfaces.
