PIAB Introduces Resilient LC30 Level Compensator
Flexible Design is Ideal for High Automation Material Handling
Hingham, MA - PIAB Vacuum Products, a leading manufacturer of industrial vacuum products and components, introduces the resilient LC30 level compensator, a new device that allows for extremely flexible material handling with suction cups. Designed to adjust level differences in lifting devices that are fitted with several suction cups, the LC30 decreases demand for exact vertical positioning. The LC30 is intended for material handling applications in a range of industries, including packaging, automotive, appliances, wood, HVAC, and other industries that require a high degree of automation.
PIAB's LC30 can be easily integrated into any of the company's vacuum products, especially the popular VGS(TM)3010 (Vacuum Gripper System), which is an advanced solution for decentralized vacuum systems that combines DURAFLEXÂ® suction cups and patented COAXÂ® multi-stage ejector technology. The LC30 can mount directly in the groove of an aluminum profile, and is easily fixed in place with a hexagonal screw and T-nut.
Featuring a 1.18" (30mm) stroke with low building height, PIAB's LC30 can be adjusted by 0.47", and can also be made non-rotational. The LC30's conical stainless steel spring rests in a polyurethane busing that ensures excellent damping characteristics and allows shock load at full stroke. The materials that comprise the level compensator have been chosen to minimize the weight of the mounting gripper, eliminating high shear forces and, thus, extending system life. The LC30 weighs just 7.76 ounces (excluding fixing screws) and has a maximum vertical load of 157 lbf.
PIAB Vacuum Products is a leader in developing innovative vacuum technology for use in automated material handling and factory automation processes. PIAB provides innovative solutions designed to help improve productivity and efficiency in manufacturing processes around the world.
