Suction cups working principle
Basics about vacuum end effectors
- Vacuum suction cups are usually manufactured of nitrile, silicone, and polyurethanes.
- Suction cup does not actually attach itself to the product’s surface, instead it holds against it.
- Vacuum pressure is generated at the moment suction cup contacts with product, by drawing out the air from its interior and creating difference in pressure levels inside and outside of the cup.
- Force of hold is determined by difference in atmospheric and inside the cup pressure.
- Selection of suction cup should be based on at least three criteria:
- Workpiece surface, size, and weight features.
- Material it is made of.
- Operating conditions.
