Elesa's components function through a vacuum generator that that creates a depression within the vacuum suction cup, allowing it to adhere to the surface of the item to be moved. The grip on the load is sustained so long as the vacuum remains in the system.
Elesa's vacuum suction cups, available in various shapes (classic cup, flat, elliptical, bellows, or multi-bellows) and dimensions ranging from 4 mm to 125 mm, showcase versatility. They find applications across different sectors, including food packaging (especially in flow pack packaging with plastic films), electronics, paper converting (labels and sheets of paper or cardboard), automotive (handling metal parts or glass windshields), and medical/pharmaceutical. These suction cups also are suitable for handling various objects such as ceramic or clay tiles, marble or glass slabs, items made from concrete, wood, and plastic components.
The vacuum suction cups, available in different compounds (oil-proof rubber, silicone, natural or para-natural rubber) are compatible with all products, including those with irregular, rough surfaces or in the presence of oil or liquids.
The presence of grooves and the contoured shape of the vacuum suction cup support surface ensures a strong grip with the load surface, particularly on oiled sheets, glass, or marble sheets, facilitating the drainage of any liquids.
The vacuum cup holders allow the vacuum suction cups to be fixed to the automation device gripper and are made up of:
• A brass or stainless-steel threaded stem
• A spring (external or built-in) to cushion the impact of the vacuum suction cup while maintaining a constant pressure with the load to be lifted
• A quick fitting, for connection to the suction hose.
They are available in different configurations, sizes (mini and micro), and different materials, allowing them to be used in all industrial sectors.
