Corncobs and foam rubber: a recipe for the perfect grip


For the gripping of products with irregular surfaces, Vuototecnica offers its special foam rubber suction cups.

In this video you can see an application of these suction cups on food, such as corncobs, which have a grained surface, difficult to grip. The foam rubber of these suction cups in fact has a density that offers excellent grip even on rough or irregularly shaped products like sawn, flamed or bush hammered marbles; non-slip or corrugated textured sheets, cement raw products, outdoor tiles.

It is possible to use them within the temperature range from -40 ° C to +80 ° C for OF orange foam rubber, from -20 ° C to +80 ° C for NF neoprene foam rubber; they maintain their elasticity even after many work cycles.

Thanks to their self-adhesive side, the suction cups attach themselves quickly to anodized aluminum holders, provided with a central threaded hole for mounting on the automatic mechanism.

Bigger holders with two threaded holes, equidistant from the center, are also available, for the possible insertion of anti rotation guide pins.

To view the foam rubber suction cups and their specifications, please see the catalogue.
