High temperature resistant vacuum cups (482°F)
Schmalz, Inc. Posted 05/11/2009Schmalz, the leader for Vacuum Components and Gripping Systems, presents a new range of high-temperature resistant vacuum cups. The special, silicone-free material HT2 can stand temperatures up to 482° F. The special design of the high temperature resistant vacuum cups allows for process-safe high-speed-handling.
The HT2 vacuum cups are therefore ideal for removal of sheet-metal parts after hot forming. With this new era of vacuum cups the total tooling weight can be reduced significantly by replacing the mechanical gripping system. The new tooling setup with HT2 vacuum cups not only reduces the weight and complexity of the gripping tool, but also boosts productivity: the operational costs slump and the hard-wearing vacuum cup material guarantees a long life.
Schmalz offers a wide range of the new HT2 vacuum cups for many different sizes and shapes of workpieces.
