Compact Ejector provides fast, cautious, precise placement.FIPA, Inc. Atlanta, GA 30318
May 14, 2013 Intended for pick and place robotics applications, vacuum generator uses suction cups for dynamic handling tasks. Blow-off flow is supplied via compressed air line as well as from ambient air, and blow-off boost enables precise and cautious deposit of workpieces in milliseconds. Rate of vacuum build up and dissipation accelerate gripping and placing, and each suction cup can be supplied with its own ejector. Solenoid valve withstands 100+ million switching operations.
PWIS-Free Suction Cups suit confined-space applications.FIPA, Inc. Atlanta, GA 30318
Mar 14, 2013 Made of HNBR, Short-Stroke Suction Cups designed for special handling tasks with flat surfaces. Paint-wetting impairment substance (PWIS)- and silicone-free, low-marking suction cups are not subject to lateral sliding movements due to vertical suction lips, which minimizes abrasion and help extend cycle life. To develop suction even on rough or grained surfaces, products feature dovetailed double sealing lips.
Wear Resistant Bellows Suction Cups handle abrasive products.FIPA, Inc. Atlanta, GA 30318
Mar 01, 2013 Made from special polyurethane material, Varioflex Bellows Suction Cups offer solution for automating and handling abrasive products with rough surfaces. With 60° Shore hardness, body resets itself automatically and provides resistance to lateral bending, while soft sealing lip with 30° Shore hardness guarantees maximum flexibility when handling abrasive products such as cardboard. Resistant to oil and weathering, polymer blend optimizes elasticity on exposure to UV.
Sprue Gripper removes workpieces during injection molding.FIPA, Inc. Atlanta, GA 30318
Feb 13, 2013 With high gripping force of 22 N, Sprue Gripper GR04.101A provides large area sprue control for detection of sprue in gripper regardless of position. Large jaw opening and compact construction allow for flexible integration into gripper systems, while Hartcoat® treated surfaces ensure wear resistance.
Magnetic Grippers have pneumatically controlled design.FIPA, Inc. Atlanta, GA 30318
Dec 14, 2012 Pneumatically controlled magnetic gripper is suited for integration within electronics-free environments, often found in sheet forming plant, and is compatible with FIPA gripper construction kit. Product keeps work piece in place, even when compressed air supply is lost, and design ensure secure handling of flat, ferromagnetic work pieces with and without boreholes or cutouts. Optional PNP and NPN magnetic sensors are available to monitor piston position.
Parallel and Angular Grippers feature customizable design.FIPA, Inc. Atlanta, GA 30318
Nov 20, 2012 Featuring Hardcoat® coated adapter jaws, 2-Finger Parallel and Angular Grippers provide opening and closing force of 16–320 N and 11–470 N, respectively. For 2-finger angular gripper, repeat accuracy is up to ±0.01 mm. Sensors with PNP or NPN output are optionally available for part monitoring. Grippers meet needs of applications in automotive, food, medical, packaging, and plastics processing industries.
Bag Grippers feature integrated ejectors.FIPA, Inc. Atlanta, GA 30318
Oct 18, 2012 Designed to handle unstable, bag-type containers and shrink-wrapped packages, Bag Grippers offer optimal suction power due to integrated ejectors. Even in case of low suction power due to handling extremely porous goods, side channel blower is available to generate vacuum. Diameter of suction channels allows dust particles to pass through unhindered, eliminating downtime due to clogging. Customized handling solutions can be created by splitting vacuum chambers and adjusting chamber depths.
Air-Saving Ejectors will not compromise cycle times.FIPA, Inc. Atlanta, GA 30318
Oct 01, 2012 EKPP, EKP, and EMM Series integrate pressure regulation to reduce consumption of compressed air and energy without impacting cycle times. Equipped with automatic pressure regulation, they reduce compressed air usage by up to 50% per work piece, regardless of porosity. In addition, EMA and EKP-LSE Series can achieve savings of up to 97%, for airtight work pieces, via electronic air-saving function. All systems use 50.8 psi internally, reaching max vacuum level at feed pressure of 58 psi.
Insert-Grippers are tailored to shape of handled material.FIPA, Inc. Atlanta, GA 30318
Aug 24, 2012 Available in vacuum- and air-powered models, Customized Insert-Grippers are designed specifically for handling inserts in plastic injection-molded parts. Housing materials include high-strength aluminum compound or polyamide-based plastic, which is safe for use with food products. With quick-action couplings, gripper heads can be replaced without dismantling gripper system.
Parallel and 3-Finger Grippers handle strong duty applications.FIPA, Inc. Atlanta, GA 30318
Aug 31, 2011 Suited for cylindrical workpieces, 3-finger parallel grippers bring workpiece to defined position via self-centering gripper fingers and provide secure grip. Stroke spectrum ranges from 2-10 mm, and gripping forces range from 20-720 N. Parallel grippers for especially long strokes cover range from 20-200 mm and gripping forces from 20 to ~500 N. They are used, for example, in systems for handling of plane injection molded parts. Both grippers accommodate sensors for detecting piston position.
