Bellows vacuum cups SB

Bellows vacuum cups, by handling specialists also referred to as bellows suction pads, are mainly used for the gentle handling of delicate products. They are available with varying numbers of bellows as well as in various materials and designs, and are thus able to compensate for small to medium height and angle differences between the vacuum cup and the workpiece.

In addition to compensating for uneven product surfaces, an excellent adaptation to products with curvatures is also possible. Thanks to their flexible and particularly soft sealing lips, they maintain a stable vacuum and enable fully-automated processes with high cycle rates and constant performance – from small components in injection molding production to picking up large metal parts or oily sheets.

The FIPA assortment ranges from universal bellows vacuum cups to temperature-resistant models and highly specialized series, such as vacuum cups for eggs or baked goods. Bellows vacuum cups made of low-marking Thermalon® or HNBR are suitable for demolding hot plastic parts from injection molding machines. FIPA bellows vacuum cups score here, for example, with their low-marking surface, which makes coating or painting your products a high-quality and error-free process. It also speaks to the quality of our bellows vacuum cups that they grip products with residue, such as oil, just as precisely and firmly as clean surfaces or products with abrasive properties. Our robust Varioflex® bellows vacuum cups, made from a special polyurethane and combining two material hardnesses, are designed for automation applications where a strong holding force and a long cycle life are a must in addition to short cycle times.

Bellows vacuum cups, universal – SBU

Bellows vacuum cups, universal – SBU

The FIPA universal bellows vacuum cup series – SBU – is available in models with 1.5, 2.5 and 3.5 bellows and diameters of 4 to 88 mm as well as lifts of 2 – 36 mm.

Thanks to a large lift, universal bellows vacuum cups cautiously grip sensitive goods and products with curved surfaces.

Bellows vacuum cups with 1.5 folds for dynamic handling of oily metal sheets – SM-B

Bellows vacuum cups with 1.5 folds for dynamic handling of oily metal sheets – SM-B

FIPA SM-B series bellows vacuum cups are specially optimised for the dynamic handling of oily sheet metal. Robust anti-slip support ribs ensure an extraordinarily high retention force for the sheet metal cups. High shear forces that occur, for example, when tipping oily metal sheets are reliably accommodated. Thanks to inner supports within the bellows body, thin-walled sheet metal like that used in car body construction, can be gripped without deformation – and without unwanted deep drawing. The 1.5 bellows enable the compensation of height and angle differences.

With its soft sealing lip, the vacuum cup for sheet metal handling also adapts to curved structures, thus ensuring a low leakage. A vulcanised connection thread guarantees a tight fit in the fitting even during the most dynamic gripping processes.

Temperature-resistant bellows vacuum cups

Temperature-resistant bellows vacuum cups

With the aid of temperature-resistant bellows vacuum cups, robots are able to extract hot plastic parts from the injection mould. Since most of these parts are still painted or coated, only bellows vacuum cups that are low-marking, free of paint wetting impairment substances (PMS) or mould release, and made of materials such as Thermalon® or HNBR may be used.

FIPA bellows vacuum cups made of Thermalon® (series SKT-B1 with 1.5 bellows, series SKT-B2 with 2.5 bellows) and HNBR (series SKH-B1 with 1.5 bellows , series SKH-B2 with 2.5 bellows) are heat-resistant up to 160° C. The bellow is able to compensate height and angle differences between the vacuum cup and plastic part – perfect for gripping uneven or slightly curved injection moulded plastic parts.

Bellows vacuum cups made from Varioflex® – SP-BX

Bellows vacuum cups made from Varioflex® – SP-BX

Long life time and an outstanding holding capacity – FIPA bellows vacuum cups made of oil- and ozone-resistant Varioflex® composite material consist of a dimensionally stable body (60° Shore) and soft sealing lip (30° Shore). The body prevents lateral buckling over a broad range of shear force. The soft sealing lip ensures minimum leakage, even on uneven product surfaces. The outstanding recovery force of the body allows for the use of this bellows vacuum cup in systems with short cycle times. FIPA offers a selection of Varioflex® bellows vacuum cups with 1.5 bellows (SP-BX1 series) and 2.5 bellows (SP-BX2 series) with diameters ranging from 15 to 75 mm. FIPA Varioflex® bellows vacuum cups with 1.5 bellows can be used as vacuum cups for gripping dry sheet metal. Supports prevent deep drawing effects when working with thin-walled sheet metal. FIPA Varioflex® bellows vacuum cups with 2.5 bellows are designed for applications that require good height and angle compensation, for example, the demoulding of injection moulding parts.
