Spring Loaded Suspension Assemblies for ANVER Vacuum Suction Cups, P-Series Vacuum Suction Cups

ANVER Vacuum Suction Cups can be mounted to most vacuum systems using Spring Loaded Suspension Assemblies. These are high quality, well finished and designed for high speed automation applications. Adjustable bulkhead fittings mount to almost any lifting frame while a variety of tube fittings are available to connect to the vacuum generating system. These unique mounting systems act as extensions while providing support while handling a load.ANVER Vacuum Suction Cups can be mounted to most vacuum systems using spring-loaded suspension assemblies.

Advantages of Suspension Assemblies

  • Reduce machine indexing when picking up material from a stack
  • Compensate for variations in object height and offer a soft touch attach
  • Minimize shock and noise to an object and machine
  • Provide consistent cup pressure on each pick-up, which increases cup life
  • Easy way for vacuum cup and vacuum lines to interface with machine tooling

ANVER’s SLSA-1 Series connects to a vacuum system via 5 mm, 10-32 UNF female threads. For G 1/8″ male threads, use the SLSA-2 Series.

ANVER can adapt these vacuum cup suspensions to your particular needs with tube fittings, mini-vacuum generators, sensing valves, and custom adapters. Please contact the technical sales department at ANVER for assistance.
