Vacuum accessories

Article-Vacuum accessories

A wide variety of accessories is available, including vacuum valves, swivel joints and level compensators that can make their replacement vacuum cups more productive and energy efficient. When used with lifters, manipulators, pick-and-place systems, label applicators and other vacuum equipment, applicable vacuum-cup accessories can speed material-handling operations while saving energy. The vacuum valves open to create suction only when they contact the work-piece, saving energy over the constant-vacuum usually encountered with traditional, non-valved cups, which provides both a quieter work environment and energy savings.
