Piab Suction Cups

The piGRIP® is a unique configurable suction cup concept with individually optimized parts for gripping, lifting and height compensation. Also a large selection of fittings makes it ready to fit new machines and easy to retrofit existing cups. The fittings available are both threaded and push on fittings.

Modular Suction Cups

A modular suction cup that fits most machines and that can be optimized for handling almost all materials. piGRIP’s different lip types, optimized for various products to lift, ensure the right hardness/softness and sealing capability for your material.

Combined with the firm bellows, piGRIP is stable enough to handle faster accelerations and more high speed lifts as compared to traditional cups.

Piab Suction Cups
Piab Suction Cup Lips

Standard Lip

The green standard lip is suitable for relatively even surfaces on sealed materials. It has extra wear resistance.

Piab Suction Cup Lips

Flexible Lip

For surface leaking materials (wrinkled or textured) and porous materials, such as corrugated paper.

Piab Suction Cup Lips

Bag Lip

For difficult bags such as pouches and heavy bags with e.g. liquids.

Piab Suction Cup Lips

Foam Lip

Suitable when conventional lips are not sealing enough. Can replace mechanical grippers.

Duraflex Suction Cups

Piab Suction Cup

Single Durometer

High wear resistance without compromising adherence to the object.

Applications

Smooth surfaces on objects such as plastic pieces, furniture parts, sheet metal (dry), glass, solar panels, etc.

Piab Suction Cup

Dual Durometer

Firm bellow, soft and flexible lip, very high sealing capacity and durability.

Applications

Textured, uneven and also very rough surfaces on objects such as plastic pieces, wood, sheet metal (dry), glass, corrugated cardboard, carton, tiles, etc.

Piab Suction Cup

Friction

Exceptional grip on oily surfaces.

Applications

Oily metal sheets and other lubricated surfaces.

Specialty Cups

Piab Suction Cup

Silicone

For extremely high temperature applications and or when handling food products.

Applications

Contact with food or FDA environments, packages, pre-colored plastic parts (high temperature), bakery (detectable), electronics/semiconductor (conductive/ antistatic).

Bags with fragile contents and food, bags with liquids, viscous contents and frozen food (low temperatures), open bags.

Piab Suction Cup

Nitrile-PVC and CR

NITRILE-PVC — Oil resistant, a traditionally designed cup. CR — Especially good for low temperature environments, a traditionally designed cup.

Applications

Conventional suction cup material for general purposes.

Piab Suction Cup

HNBR

Used in handling hot parts or where silicone or PWIS is not allowed. Mark free.

Applications

Removing hot plastic parts from injection moulding equipment, glass handling.
