You can see our Octopus vacuum gripping system with a PJ suction plate in action, in this video. It is perfect for handling bulk products packs containing liquids, such as in the case of these mozzarella packs. As you can imagine, this is a very delicate process, because the gripping surface is not uniform in weight and shape.
And yet Octopus perfectly adapts to robots operating speed, it is gentle on the packs, thus avoiding unwanted operating stops and losses. The package is not deformed because the plates gasket and their gripping surface allow to limit the deformation of the pack, thus reducing the loss of vacuum to the minimum.
PJ plates are made of anodized aluminum, are very durable, and have a rubber sponge gasket. They are also suitable for the gripping of plastic bags containing in powdered and granulated products. The lifting force is calculated considering a vacuum level of at least -75 Kpa. In addition, they are available in different sizes depending on the load to be lifted. And if you wish to repurpose your robots for other applications, you can replace them in a very simple and straightforward way.
