In this video you can see a palletizer robot in action, which uses the innovative SO 40 60 X Octopus by Vuototecnica.
Octopus is a range of vacuum gripping systems, with a wide assortment of accessories and components, designed as a practical response to the need for palletizing and de-palletizing in various sectors of industry.
As you can see, it is ideal to stack and un-stack cartons, sacks and boxes, ensuring the grip of the carton interlayers and of wooden pallets, too.
Thanks to Octopus, Vuototecnica is able to ensure the grip, in maximum safety, without having to replace suction cups every time: it is great, in fact, even when the surface of the objects to manipulate occupies only 5% of the suction plate.
All Octopus systems are composed of a vacuum generator powered by compressed air; a box in anodized aluminum; a stainless steel mesh microfine filter on the intake, easily inspectable, to protect the generator; and, finally, the suction plate, able to adapt perfectly to any surface to be taken, whether it is smooth, rough or irregular.
Octopus provides a very wide choice of suction plates in different materials and shapes, according to use.
The customer can choose between spongy gums or suction cups and additional components, such as shut-off valves, to open the suction only when in contact with the product to be handled, or suction plates with calibrated and self-cleaning micro holes, suitable for dusty environments.
Octopus vacuum gripping systems can operate vertically, horizontally, inclined and even upside down respect to objects gripping surface.
