Piab Suction Cups

The first modular suction cup on the market

cup diagram

A modular suction cup that fits most machines and that can be optimized for handling almost all materials. piGRIP’s six 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.

Your choices are endless, piGRIP is available as a flat, one, three or as a six bellow cup. The availability of more than 40 different fittings, six different types of lips, and also a low micron filter disc for the bellow and a mesh filter for the fitting makes the variations of this modular suction cup endless. You can configure more than thousands and thousands of different types of cups to meet your exact need.


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

cups family

Standard Lip

standard lip

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

The blue standard lip is recommended if the surface is more uneven or rough, e.g. textured plastic parts.

Flexible Lip

flexible lip

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

Bag Lip


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

Foam Lip

foam lip

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

Duraflex Suction Cups

Single durometer

High wear resistance without compromising adherence to the object.



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

Dual durometer

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



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


Exceptional grip on oily surfaces.



Oily metal sheets and other lubricated surfaces.

Specialty Cups


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



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.

Nitrile-PVC and CR

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



Conventional suction cup material for general purposes.


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



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