Vacuum Cups are shaped to securely grip oval products.
June 9, 2011 -
Available in oil-resistant NBR (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Rubber) or FDA-compliant, temperature-resistant silicone, oval vacuum cups feature sealing face with three-dimensional (3D) shape designed for optimal grip. Contour of suction lip partially grips cylindrical workpiece and can securely accommodate very small diameter items such as pipettes, pencils, bolts, and needles.

Oval Vacuum Cups for Cylindrical Products
The right solution for any handling task: FIPA (www.fipa.com) has extended its range of vacuum cups by adding oval vacuum cups for cylindrical workpieces.
While classic oval vacuum cups are flat and offer only a small attachment area for cylindrical parts, the new vacuum cups feature a sealing face with a three-dimensional, oval shape.
The contour of the suction lip partially grips the workpiece resulting in significantly better suction than classic oval vacuum cups. The advantage is that very small diameter workpieces can be securely gripped even at high speeds. Reliable handling solutions for pipettes, pencils, bolts, needles and the like can thus be realized efficiently. The new oval vacuum cups for cylindrical workpieces are available in oil-resistant NBR (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Rubber) or FDA-compliant, temperature-resistant silicone.
