The piGRIP® is a unique configurable suction cup concept with individually optimized parts for gripping, lifting and height compensation. Also a large selection of fittings makes it ready to fit new machines and easy to retrofit existing cups. The fittings available are both threaded and push on fittings.
Several short bellows cups in one lifting device can handle objects with height differences and varying shapes. The bellows also provide a slight lifting movement to separate thin items. Materials used are silicone, conductive silicone, semi-conductive EPDM, chloroprene, HNBR and nitrile-PVC.
The same applications as for short bellows. Also suitable for smooth objects requiring a very clean surface. Only light weight objects should be handled when the lifting force is parallel to the surface.
Suitable for uneven and porous surfaces such as cardboard, etc. DURAFLEX® suction cups are manufactured in a specially developed material that features the elasticity of rubber and wear resistance of polyurethane. The material of the DURAFLEX® is mark-free.
The BFFT design is the best choice for very thin metal sheets (0.6–0.8 mm/0.02–0.03") to avoid risk for dents. The cups work great on flat and uneven/curved surfaces or if level compensation is needed, for example in de-stacking applications.
