Spring Loaded Suspension Assemblies for ANVER Vacuum Cups, 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 assemblies designed for high-speed automation applications. The suspension assemblies have adjustable bulkhead fittings that mount to almost any lifting frame, and a variety of tube fittings are available to connect the spring-loaded assembly with the vacuum generating system. These unique mounting systems act as extensions while providing support when handling loads.

 

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-2 Series connects to a vacuum system via G 1/8″ NPS (fits into 1/8″ NPT) male thread.
For 5 mm, 10-32 UNF threads, use the SLSA-1 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 our technical sales department for assistance.
