Vacuum units

Compact design and reliable operation – FIPA central vacuum units offer a complete solution for vacuum generation. With a vacuum tank, one to three oil-lubricated pumps, and control devices, they provide central vacuum generation for multiple components.


The assortment also includes portable vacuum units that supply grippers, for example, with vacuum or that extract non-abrasive liquids, such as cooling lubricants, from machines.


FIPA vacuum stations with two or three vacuum pumps function as redundant vacuum systems and use a bypass system to enable maintenance while operating. The stationary vacuum stations are equipped with an electronic control system that switches on the pumps as required.


The integrated vacuum tank ensures a reliable vacuum supply during short-term power failures and spikes during vacuum demand.
