Integrated vacuum gripper system

May 17, 2004

To improve efficiency in decentralized vacuum systems, the Vacuum Gripper System 3010 from PIAB uses Duraflex suction cups and COAX ejector technology. The suction cups feature molded fittings and can grip coarse, uneven or curved surfaces. According to PIAB, COAX integrates the internal components of a multi-stage vacuum pump into a vacuum cartridge that can be used in a modular system. The VGS 3010 can function at operating pressures below 45 psi.
