This multi-purpose, energy efficient suction cup, from vacuum solutions manufacturer Piab, boasts extreme gripping capabilities on many surfaces and materials. The MX suction cup has the ability to create a hard seal when using a low-vacuum flow that contributes to a more sustainable energy output. Cups are available in five sizes: 35, 42, 50, 57, and 65 mm in diameter and are compatible with our extensive piGRIP® fitting program, allowing for fitting options tailored to your needs. For extra safety and robustness, opt for the aluminum clamp fittings.
The MX suction cup is optimal for handling pouches, cardboard boxes, recycled objects, and difficult to grasp bags such a thin bags, plus much more.
The vacuum sealing performance allows for up to 50% less vacuum flow, allowing for a reduction of the compressed air used by downsizing the vacuum pump.
The low vacuum level design (ideally at 30-40 -kPa / 9-12 -inHg for best grip) helps avoid denting/wrinkling surfaces and to have the best possibility to recycle/re-use packages, which allows for a more sustainable output on packaging.
The MX suction cup is designed with DURAFLEX® Piab’s extreme longevity material which has tested positively for over 750,000 cycles.
Piab’s smart suction cup design means that the MX suction cup has an exceptional sealing capability especially at lower vacuum levels. The MX cup is also able to handle different object types with various geometries and surface textures. Up to 50% less vacuum flow is required on difficult to pick objects while still offering a safe and sturdy grip.
The MX suction cup is the perfect fit for small capacity vacuum systems such as piCOBOT® or for vacuum systems with capacity issues, for example due to fluctuations in compressed air pressure or great variations in system leakage because of product variations.
