These powerful vacuum cups – with and without bellows – are particularly suitable for the precise and safe handling of elongated and cylindrical goods. The special design of the sealing lip makes holding your pipes or cylinders just as safe as holding large flat metal sheets. Process reliability is also the highest priority when it comes to filigree parts, when these must be removed delicately from the injection molding process – even under the influence of high temperatures and completely residue-free, thanks to our materials Thermalon® and HNBR. No less challenging is the performance of oval vacuum cups when handling large metal sheets, even with oily or curved parts. Due to their highly flexible sealing lips, the oval vacuum cups even succeed virtually leak-free. The oval vacuum cups made of NBR are oil- and wear-resistant, non-slip as well as silicone-free and free of paint wetting impairment substances (PWIS) or mold release. We place starkly different emphasis on oval vacuum cups for the handling of packaged goods. Whether sealed in foil or encased in cardboard: wear-resistant vinyl on the vacuum cups makes your process virtually maintenance-free. Thanks to the highly flexible and yet highly resilient oval vacuum cups, picking-up, moving and depositing your foil-wrapped products or cardboard boxes becomes a breeze. The packaging as well as the food industry need sturdy rectangular vacuum cups for the gentle handling of flexible, foil-wrapped products and filled bags. Our vacuum cups are made of FDA-compliant silicone and are allowed to come into contact with food. When the job becomes dynamic, high cycle rates demand the maximum from oval vacuum cups. Our special design therefore makes the vacuum cups torsion-resistant and ensures that the forces only act within the suction process. Radial and axial loads are safely and skillfully buffered and thus help your extrusions, bars, tubes or bolts to be handled even more dynamic and flexible. Basically, there is nothing a FIPA oval vacuum cup cannot do: We look forward to your task!"
Series SO-FU & SO-BU: Universal oval vacuum cups
The handling of hot, extremely delicate injection moulding parts poses a special challenge for vacuum cups. In order to maintain production tolerances and allow for future painting or coating, the removal of parts from the injection moulding machine must be deformation-free and low-marking. The vacuum cup material must, therefore, be free of paint wetting impairment substances (PWIS) or mould release. Since parts often have a narrow width and complex shape, oval vacuum cups need to be small enough to gently touch down even in ribbing. All of these requirements of the plastics industry are best fulfilled with temperature-resistant Thermalon® oval vacuum cups of the SKT-O series. These oval vacuum cups can be used with temperatures up to 160 °C. Our range covers common sizes ranging from 4x2 mm to 45x115 mm.
Series SKT-O: Temperature-resistant oval vacuum cups made of Thermalon®
The handling of hot injection moulding parts poses a special challenge for vacuum grippers. Injection moulding parts are often extremely delicate. In order to maintain production tolerances and allow for future painting or coating, the removal of parts from the injection moulding machine must be deformation-free and low-marking. The gripper material must, therefore, be free of PWIS and mould release. Since parts often have a narrow width and complex shape, oval vacuum cups need to be small enough to gently touch down even in ribbing. All of these requirements of the plastics industry are best fulfilled with FIPA SKT-O / SKH-O series temperature-resistant Thermalon® or HNBR oval vacuum cups. These oval suction cups can be used in temperatures up to 160 °C. The FIPA range covers common sizes ranging from 4x2 mm to 45x115 mm.
Series SM-O: Oval vacuum cups for dynamic handling of oily and dry metal sheets
FIPA offers durable oval vacuum cups for handling elongated or cylindrical sheet metal workpieces. Oil resistant NBR vacuum cups can handle oily and dry metal sheets. They are highly wear resistant, non-slip and free of paint wetting and impairment substances (PWIS) silicone free. Constructive measures such as cleats on the underside of the oval vacuum cups allow them to withstand very high lateral forces that occur in the dynamic handling of metal sheets. This prevents undesired deformations due to deep-drawing effects. The highly flexible sealing lip also ensures leak-free holding of arched curved sheet metal parts.
Series SO-BV: Oval bellows vacuum cups made of Vinyl
Bellows vacuum cups made of resilient, yet flexible material are required for handling foil-wrapped goods and abrasive packaging, e.g., cardboard packaging. FIPA SO-BV series oval bellows vacuum cups made of vinyl fulfil the requirements of the packaging industry. The wear-resistant vinyl ensures long service life of the oval suction cups. You benefit from long maintenance cycles and reliable operation.
Series SV-RB: Rectangle bellows vacuum cups made from Silicone
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 achieve large vacuum grippers capable of reliable handling of product layers, even in foil secondary packaging. FIPA 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 accessory wire bracket reinforcements for insertion in the bellows.
Series SO-E: Flat oval vacuum cups
With an oval, extremely thin design with numerous gradations, these flat vacuum cups can securely pick up elongated objects. The antistatic models are especially suited for applications in the electrical engineering and electronics industries, e.g. semiconductor handling and automated handling of circuit boards with electronic components. Their use in highly dynamic handling systems with rapid cycle times is facilitated by interlocking, clip-in fittings with high torsional strength and resistance against twisting. FIPA SO-E series flat oval vacuum cups are available in dimensions ranging from 10x4 mm to 30x8 mm.
Series SO-C: Flat oval vacuum cups
Oval vacuum cups generate high forces for the highly dynamic gripping of elongated products. With vacuum cup housings made of anodised aluminium, FIPA SO-C series flat oval vacuum cups are able to pick up high radial and axial loads without deformation. Torsion-resistant suction cups are designed for handling extrusions, moulding, bolts and other goods with small, elongated designs in systems with rapid cycle times. The FIPA SO-C series of oval vacuum cups provides torsion-resistant suction cups with dimensions ranging from 30x12 mm to 190x90 mm.
Series SO-Z: Oval vacuum cups for cylindrical products
Vacuum grippers for cylindrical/tubular products require a three-dimensional sealing lip contour that partially covers the handling goods, thus allowing a tight hold with low leakage. FIPA SO-Z series oval vacuum cups for cylindrical products with optimised sealing lip contour deliver higher suction power than standard oval vacuum cups. Round rods, bolts, needles and other cylindrical objects with diameters of 2 to 18 mm can be gripped with the oval vacuum cups of the SO-Z series.
Series SOPL-R: Oval vacuum suction plates for textured surfaces
For the handling of elongated, heavy products with difficult surfaces such as rough sawn wooden planks, oval suction plates with extremely flexible sealing lips made of wear-resistant materials provide the required high retention force with minimal leakage and long service life. FIPA oval suction plates for structured surfaces are especially suited to the requirements of the timber industry. The vulcanised aluminium support plate achieves a high load capacity. Supports on the contact surface prevent the deformation of the product, for example, when handling thin-walled panels.
Series SOPL-S & SOPL-A: Oval vacuum suction plates
The timber and glass industries require vacuum cups made of resilient, low-marking materials. FIPA SOPL-A series oval suction plates are specially designed for handling elongated and narrow products made of glass and wood. Vulcanised aluminium support plates guarantee the tight hold and high bending strength that is required. Rubber supports prevent the deformation of the workpiece and increase lateral stability. Oval vacuum cup plates made of wear-resistant natural rubber (NR) are designed for handling wood products. Oval suction plates made of low-marking nitrile rubber (NBR) are preferred for handling glass. Our Technical Sales Department is ready to assist you with special requirements.
