Piab adds smaller suction cups to DURAFLEX BX range

PBR Staff Writer Published 17 January 2011

Piab, a supplier of industrial vacuum technology, has expanded its range of DURAFLEX BX suction cups to include three new models in small diameters for use in applications such as carton erecting, case and bin packing, palletizing, de-palletizing and rotary feeding in the packaging, pharmaceutical, plastic and consumer goods industries.

The premium DURAFLEX BX range now includes the new 10 mm, 15 mm and 20 mm suction cup sizes (models BX10P, BX15P and BX20P).

Piab said the new suction cups offer improved sealing capabilities for products with porous, uneven or textured surfaces, such as medical products and plastic or metal parts, allowing manufacturers to increase line productivity and reduce energy consumption.

Piab VP of Marketing and Communication Josef Karbassi said to meet consumer demand for a variety of product sizes, manufacturers are looking for vacuum solutions that offer full flexibility while also helping to enhance productivity and reduce costs.
