A Better Suction Cup
Piab (Hingham, MA) has launched its new piGRIP suction cup, which is the first modular suction cup, according to the company. The piGRIP allows companies to choose the ideal combination of lip and bellow so products can be handled at high speeds. The system is available with a range of independent lips, bellows, and fittings in sizes from 25-77mm, allowing it to be tailored to individual gripping, lifting, and height requirements to handle a variety of products. Other features include:
- A thin wall design, which ensures that faster compressions and returns are possible.
- The ability to buy the piGRIP in FDA-approved materials.
- A modular design that offers 20 to 50 percent more lifting force while reducing energy consumption.
