Bag Grippers feature integrated ejectors.
Material Handling & Storage

Bag Grippers feature integrated ejectors.

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....

Air-Saving Ejectors will not compromise cycle times.
Fluid & Gas Flow Equipment

Air-Saving Ejectors will not compromise cycle times.

EKPP, EKP, and EMM Series integrate pressure regulation to reduce consumption of compressed air and energy withoutÂ- 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...
