• Lifting Cylinder

    Vacuum lifting cylinders can be connected to a vacuum
    generator (ejector or vacuum pump). With a 3 way value
    mounted close to the lift cylinder, the vacuum is
    turned on. The piston of the lifting cylinder immediately
    extends to the suction lip of the vacuum cup which seals
    onto the work piece to the be lifted and abruptly moves
    back to the starting position. The work piece is held
    until the vacuum is interrupted by the valve. Thereafter
    the work piece falls down

    Areas of application for the lifting cylinder

    • Stacking and unstacking of a wide variety of flat work
      pieces (e.g. cardboard, veneer, wood, glass and metal
    • Separation of paper sheets and plastic films
    • For the removal of parts from injection moulding tools
    • Best suited for use in the printing, packaging and
      CD/DVD industries

    Advantages in the application

    • The entire sequence of movements is controlled by
      turning the vacuum on and off.
    • No additional valves or cylinders are required.
    • Short cycle times, therefore no additional lifting
      cylinders are required.
    • High cycle time with no suction for porous parts.
    • Compensate for height differences on work pieces.
