FIPA offers connectors for vacuum and compressed air circuits in automation and handling systems. The extensive product range includes vacuum manifolds and distributors, screw connections and plug-in connectors, quick couplings and various accessories.
Connectors by FIPA – We ensure the right connection!
To get the maximum performance and security out of your vacuum supply our standard fittings and plug-in connectors are suitable for vacuum and compressed air systems from -1 to 10 bar. Available with M-, G- and R-external and internal threads, you also have the choice between a straight model and a 90° angle model. The mini model is 40% smaller than the standard model. Various T- and Y-distributors as well as models with double and triple angle angle connectors enable you to achieve the simplest possible installations of your vacuum supply. And because we are open to all applications and industries, we also offer male stud connectors with ball bearing that allow for installation in high-speed machines. Even where it gets hot and sparking, we guarantee a safe vacuum supply with our self-extinguishing screw and plug-in connectors made of plastic or brass. With our vacuum manifolds made of aluminium or brass, you can build vacuum systems for complex automation systems and grippers. Combined with the FIPA gripper construction kit, these all-rounders make it easy to install screw connectors, plug-in connectors, quick couplings and more.
Screw connectors and plug-in connectors: Standard
FIPA standard screw connections and plug-in connectors are suited for vacuum and pressure ranging from -1 to 10 bar. Connecting elements for vacuum and pressure are available in straight or 90° angle models with M-, G-, and R-external and internal threads. T- and Y-distributors and models with double and triple angle connectors allow for complex vacuum and pressure feeds. Rotatable screw connections with ball bearings allow for installation in high speed machines. Plug fittings with locking connections, available as straight or angled models, prevent the loss of pressure/vacuum during installation.
Screw connectors and plug-in connectors: Self-extinguishing
Self-extinguishing screw connections and plug-in connectors are required for media such as vacuum and compressed air for welding systems, welding robots and other systems that produce flying sparks or weld spatter. FIPA offers a wide selection of screw connections and plug-in connectors made of self-extinguishing plastic or brass. A special anchoring of the release ring ensures high operational safety by preventing release ring malfunction when penetrated by scale or dirt.
Screw connectors and plug-in connectors: Mini
The mini-models of the FIPA screw connections and plug-in connectors for compressed air and vacuum in the range from -1 to 10 bar are 40 per cent smaller than the standard version. They are available with M-, R- or G-external or internal threads and as straight or 45° or 90° angled models. The elliptical mini-release ring makes installation and disassembly work easier.
FIPA vacuum manifolds and vacuum distributors can be used to build vacuum systems for complex automation systems and grippers. They are perfectly compatible with FIPA construction kit systems and allow for the simple installation of screw connections, plug-in connectors and quick couplings. The FIPA selection features vacuum manifolds made of aluminium or brass with inputs on one or both sides, up to six in/outputs and various external and internal threads.
Whether double nipples, thread adapters, reducing bushes, locking screws, angle connections or seal rings – FIPA offers a wide selection of small parts for building vacuum and compressed air systems.
