FIPA's recommendations for the sheet metal handling industry.
Whether you want to move metal sheets automatically or manually, at FIPA you will find just the right handling products to meet your needs. Oil-resistant and silicone-free vacuum suction cups ensure accurate position handling of sheet metal parts, even for high cycle times.
FIPA even has the fitting solution for the manual handling of sheet metal parts - the FIPALIFT tube lifter. It allows metal sheets of up to 290 kg to be gently, safely and accurately put into place and released by only one person in a short cycle time.
The wide range of vacuum cups and other accessories allows you to handle metal sheets without leaving any bumps, scratches or residues that could interfere with painting. In doing so, it does not matter whether the sheets are textured, smooth, oily, non-magnetic or hot.
Our process optimization solutions are used in both press plants and car body construction. Robot-based automation increases cycle times while improving plant productivity significantly. Automobile manufacturers are therefore able to offer short delivery times and produce profitably. Large and heavy sheet metal parts are moved with efficient lifting technology.
Appliances that are referred to as white goods can be found in almost every household. They are usually made from very thin pieces of sheet metal with numerous shaped sections, which makes handling a challenge. As household appliances always have a large number of visible parts, low-marking handling that protects surfaces is an essential requirement of our vacuum cups. Our wide product range makes this possible.
