Further broadening its already extensive application range, Piab expands its line of Bellows Polyurethane suction cups to include cups measuring 150 mm and 200 mm in diameter.
With their short bellows, these Bellow Polyurethane (BP) suction cups are ideally suited to handle objects of different height when joined in one lifting device – an important feature when handling wooden parts for furniture production. The suction cups are available being made out of 60 shore material completely or with a 60 shore bellow and a 30 shore lip. While the latter is ideal for handling rough or structured surfaces of for instance unworked wood, the 60/60 shore version is perfect for handling smooth, non-leaking flat surfaces like those of glass, metal sheets, painted or coated wood panels such as finished furniture parts. Thanks to their capability of handling leakage prone materials such as cartons these Bellow Polyurethane suction cups are also suitable for handling large boxes in packaging and palletizing applications.
The suction cups are equipped with a plug for connection of a sensor to allow measuring the vacuum level reaching the respective suction cup. For rigidity considerations, an aluminum plate for direct attachment to the tool flange or EOAT profile is integrated, preventing the fitting to be affected by bending forces.
The suction cups are made of DURAFLEX®, a unique material made especially by Piab, which features the elasticity of rubber and the wear resistance of polyurethane. DURAFLEX® suction cups allow for stability and good grip independent of the orientation. Furthermore, they offer a long-lasting elastic memory, further enhancing their longevity.
