New, silicone-free, treaded vacuum cups, developed in the company’s unique bright yellow color, are its newest iteration in cup design. The 80° Shore cups offer a larger gripping area, higher gripping forces and the flexibility to adjust to uneven formed parts or parts with edges in steel, aluminum or plastic materials.
Called the PFG Series, these cups are designed with an oil displacement lip on the outer edge and brake rib arrangement that ensures oil and dirt are properly dispersed for better gripping capability. Featuring a thin, hard shape, these cups also resist deformation and offer high stability and durability.
The series have a vertical stroke holding rate of 351 N and lateral force of 193 N, making them extremely well-suited for high speed application. They are suited for continuous use within temperature ranges from -30° to 100° C (86° – 212° F), and short term use up to 125°C (257° F).
Weighing only 75g with a one-part body design, the PFG cups are very easy to exchange. Additionally, single-body feature means less damage to metal sheets as compared to other designs. The cups are available in round or oval shapes and work with pin or ball connection adapters in various designs made of aluminum and steel.
With more wear-resistance and longer service life than an NBR cup, PFG cups show hardly any signs of wear after 4,000,000 strokes. Made of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), the PFG cups are recyclable.
