Introduction

What is Vacuum? Vacuum is the term for air pressures which lie below normal atmospheric pressure. The vacuum values used depend on the specific application. For vacuum handling, relatively low vacuum values are sufficient. These values lie in the range between 1 mbar and atmospheric pressure (1013 mbar).

suction-pads

Suction Pads

Suction pads are used wherever objects (parts, packing materials etc.) need to be lifted, transported, turned over or handled in some other manner. They are the connecting element between the vacuum generator and the workpiece. Their technical and physical design is therefore of great importance.

special-grippers

Special Grippers

Special grippers are used in applications where it is not possible to generate a vacuum with suction pads. They act as the connecting element between the machine and the workpiece to be handled. Depending on the application, various special grippers are thus used.

Valve Technology

Vacuum valves are used to control the vacuum and to improve the process safety in vacuum-gripper systems.
A distinction is made between three groups of valves, according to their principle of operation:
• Solenoid valves for vacuum and compressed-air
• Manually actuated vacuum and compressed-air valves
• Check valves and flow resistors
