Highly efficient working ejectors with powerful suction performance are available for integrated vacuum generation. Alternatively, the vacuum can be supplied externally via a regenerative blower. The flexible setup also allows for quick connection to vacuum generation provided by the customer.

The patented valve technology makes it possible to accurately adjust the suction air requirement to the handled part's properties. Regardless whether wooden planks, cartons, construction materials or tinned food: a constantly high gripping power saves energy and costs and guarantees the foam rubber foam mat's long life.

The intelligent vacuum control guarantees high cycle times and maximum flexibility. The FIPA vacuum gripper's foam mats, which are also available for special materials with sharp edges or irregular surfaces, deserve special attention. They are very robust and age-resistant and can be quickly assembled to any application. Thanks to the innovative adhesion technology they can be quickly swapped without leaving any residue and with no pre-treatment, requiring no additional tools and effort. The positive effects are at the same time high availability and very low setup and maintenance costs.
