Piab’s MX Suction Cup Works in Numerous Applications

The MX suction cup can work across an array of applications, including bin picking, order fulfillment, box depalletizing, and parcel sorting. 

The multipurpose, energy-efficient suction cups are available in five sizes: 35, 42, 50, 57, and 65 mm in diameter and are compatible with Piab’s piGRIP fitting program, allowing for fitting options tailored to your needs. For extra safety and robustness, opt for the aluminum clamp fittings. The MX suction cup is optimal for handling pouches, cardboard boxes, recycled objects, and difficult-to-grasp bags. The vacuum-sealing performance allows for up to 50% less vacuum flow. The low vacuum level design (ideally at 30-40 -kPa / 9-12 -inHg for best grip) avoids denting/wrinkling surfaces and offers the best possibility to recycle and reuse packages.

The MX suction cup is designed with DURAFLEX, Piab’s extreme longevity material that has tested positively for over 750,000 cycles. This material features the elasticity of rubber and the outstanding wear resistance of polyurethane, as well as fantastic elastic memory and “mark free” capabilities. The MX suction cup is perfect for small-capacity vacuum systems such as piCOBOT or for vacuum systems with capacity issues, such as fluctuations in compressed air pressure or great variations in system leakage because of product variations.
