Suction Cups for Oily and Wet Surfaces

Back to Safety articles

 

Tuesday, October 17, 2017
 

At FABTECH, Piab will show its polyurethane DuraFlex friction cups for gripping oily and wet surfaces. The suction cups’ grip pattern enables operators to safely and reliably move slippery metal goods in automotive and white-goods plants, thereby reducing product drops while lowering scrap rates and without slowing production lines. The cups feature a rough cleat surface and sharp cleat edges and channels, resulting in greater friction and a strong hold that is maintained on heavy and slippery sheets during accelerations and de-accelerations, including emergency stoppages. The cups also maintain their elastic memory and original shape for an expanded life cycle.
