Piab (www.piab.com) has launched a new line-up of extra-large flat (XLF) suction cups that can handle various product sheets securely and safely in manufacturing environments.
The extra-large flat suction cups come in various diameter sizes namely 150 mm, 200 mm, 250 mm and 300 mm. All sizes are similarly designed, and sport an aluminum plate that is molded into a sturdy and long lasting 60° Shore Nitrile-PVC rubber.
As it is PWIS/Silicone-free, the strong material does not leave any stain or mark on the handled product so there is no need for extra cleaning. The cups are also suited for sensitive surfaces as its soft material will not damage nor chip the item being handled.
Moreover, the suction cups’ inner and outer parts feature a unique double lip design that improves safety in case of overload or tear due to cuts or damages from certain product sheets that have sharp corners or edges. This also reduces the chance of diminished lifting capacity as well as the possibility of products dropping.
Moreover, the extra-large flat suction cups can also be utilized in a customized lifting device or mounting frame, since the build-in dimension and height of the cups are identical.
Additional features such as quick product release and vacuum sensing can also be installed on the cups. Aside from that, these cups can handle up to 400 kg of shear force and weights of up to 500 kg.
