piGRIP™ Modular Suction Cups
PIAB USA, Inc.Posted 09/13/2010
The new piGRIP allows companies to choose the ideal combination of lip and bellow so manufacturing lines can handle products at previously unprecedented speeds while realizing energy savings.
Available with a range of independent lips, bellows and fittings in sizes from 25-77mm, the new piGRIP suction cup can be customized for thousands of applications for full operational flexibility. Whereas traditional grippers can only be used for select applications, the piGRIP can be tailored to individual gripping, lifting and height requirements to handle a variety of products and fit with a number of machines. The piGRIP can be used with new machines as well as for retrofitting existing systems.
Overall line efficiency is enhanced with the piGRIP’s superior suction grip, which allows for higher machine speeds. This powerful grip is made possible through the variety of lip options available with the piGRIP, allowing manufacturers to choose the desired hardness or softness for optimum sealing. For example, flexible lips provide extra sealing capability for the handling of surface-leaking and porous materials, such as corrugated cardboard, while foam lips are ideal for difficult to handle products such as rigid packages or heavily textured surfaces.
