The packaging and food industries require robust rectangular vacuum cups for the gentle handling of flexible, foil-wrapped products and filled bags. Rectangular vacuum cups can be mounted side by side on a base plate to realise large vacuum grippers capable to reliably handle product layers, even in secondary packaging with film. FIPA’s SV-RB series rectangular bellows vacuum cups are made of FDA-compliant silicone, making them suitable for contact with food. Models are available with 2.5 and 3.5 bellows in dimensions ranging from 52x25 mm to 80x50 mm. To prevent collapse of the bellows under a high vacuum level, FIPA provides wire bracket reinforcements for insertion in the bellows.
