FIPA offers durable oval vacuum cups for handling elongated or cylindrical sheet metal workpieces. SM-O series vacuum cups are made of oil-resistant NBR and can handle oily as well as dry metal sheets. They are highly wear-resistant, non-slip and free of paint wetting impairment substances (PWIS) and silicone. 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. FIPA offers oval flat vacuum cups from the SM-OF series as well as oval bellows vacuum cups from the SM-OB series.
