ADVANTAGES

  • No additional controls are required
  • Short cycle times compared to traditional pick and place
  • Short cycle times means less leakage on porous product handling
  • Maintenance and lubrication free

FUNCTION

  • The vacuum cylinders are in a rest position with piston retracted in the up position (1)
  • When vacuum is applied, the piston moves downwards (extends) until the vacuum cup which is attached
  • to the piston via the connection thread, seals against the load to be lifted (2)
  • Both sides of the cylinder are now equalized and the internal spring retracts the cylinder rod to its
  • original position holding the part securely (3)
  • Once vacuum is turned off the part is released from the vacuum suction cup (4)
