Lifting cylinders - operated by compressed air

FIPA lifting cylinders – operated with compressed air – are equipped with integrated ejectors for vacuum generation. They are optimised for stacking and destacking products of all kinds.

In models for flat and high suction picking, the lifting cylinders extend outward when depressurised. The cycle times of these series of lifting cylinders operated with compressed air are influenced neither by the lift, nor the weight.

The lifting cylinder series with blow-off function achieves extremely short cycle times when depositing as a result of the compressed air impulse. They are suited to stacking and destacking thin and fragile products, such as labels and veneer.

For flat suction picking, e.g. for suction cup series SFU-F Ø 4 - 15 mm

  • Stacking and destacking of workpieces
  • Vacuum generation by compressed air using an integrated ejector
  • Lifting cylinder extended during idle state
  • Cycle time independent of lift and weight

+Notes

  • For release of workpiece in defined position compressed air line needs to be shut and ventilated by means of a 3/2-way valve. Otherwise the piston will not extend and the workpiece will fall down.

Process:

1. Initial position: Compressed air off, piston drawn in, magnetic sensor in operation

2. Compressed air switched on, piston moves out, workpiece is pulled in, piston retracts with the workpiece to the initial position

3. Workpiece sucked in and lifted, compressed air on, magnetic field sensor in operation

4. Transport movement

5. Switch off compressed air, piston moves out with the workpiece, places the workpiece and retracts to the initial position

6. Initial position: Compressed air off, piston drawn in, magnetic sensor in operation
