Softens the Attach and Increases the Vacuum Cup Life

ANVER vacuum cups can be mounted to most vacuum systems using spring-loaded suspension assemblies. These high-quality, well-finished assemblies are 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 a load.

  • Reduces machine indexing when picking up material from a stack
  • Compensates for variations in object height and offers a soft touch attach
  • Minimizes shock and noise to an object and machine
  • Provides consistent cup pressure on each pick cup, which increases cups life
  • Offers an easy way for the vacuum cup and vacuum lines to interface with machine tooling

ANVER can adapt the SLSA-3 & 4 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.
