Marble or granite slabs to handle? No problem with Vuototecnica!


Vuototecnica has been a supplier for marble and granite manufacturing companies for several years.

Needless to mention how delicate it is to work with products of this value, especially because moving them often means shifting relevant weight blocks.

Vuototecnica, however, has a solution for everything.

In the first video, you can see an ABB robot moving marble slabs.

Notice how the grip is stable and there is no leakage due to the use of Maxigrip round flat suction cups..

These suction cups are able to adapt to flat, concave and convex surfaces without any risk of deforming or breaking the objects.

But the most surprising thing is that the inner support plate of the suction cups ensures a high coefficient of friction with the gripping surface and an unrivaled grip thanks to the easy drainage of oil and water.

This is a guarantee, among other things, of a very precise positioning of the load to be handled.

In this second video, you can see Vuototecnica’s ability to design solutions.

You can see in action another ABB robot that manipulates granite and marble slabs thanks to Octopus vacuum gripping system.

The movements are fluid and, even when there are jolts, the suction cups hold.

Also note that we often work in contact with liquids and powders that could potentially slip the plates or clog the vacuum systems; yet there are no accidents.

Everything is done with maximum safety and care for the materials. Only thanks to Vuototecnica.
