Suction cup ideal for opening bags in bag filling machines

Piab (piab.com), a global leader in industrial vacuum technology, offers two new suction cups designed for opening bags in the consumer and food industry. The F26 and F33 suction cups provide a strong, secure grip while trying to handle this difficult to grip plastic film material.  Suited for horizontal and vertical form and fill and seal machines, the cup is ideal for the bag opening sequence.

The flat shape of the cups available in two diameters of 26 and 33 mm have a very thin conformable lip with an unique cleat design underneath that has been specially made to prevent the film/sheet from being sucked in, thus preventing damage while enhancing lifting force.

The sealing properties of the cup compensate for leakage, allowing users to avoid unopened bags, preventing machine slowdowns and designing a more efficient handling solution overall.  Other applications include handling and thin and sensitive sheets, such as paper and plastic films.

Made of silicone material that complies with FDA standards, Piab’s new suction cups have a wide temperature range of -40°F to 392°F.

 Available in a push-on style of mounting, the cups provide a quick and easy changeover thus increasing uptime and productivity.
