Robotic Suction Cups – SofTouch Solution

industrial vacuum suction cups

Food grade suction cups for reliable and safe handling

Our vacuum suction cups constitute 4 series of soft vacuum pads, which are developed for fast and reliable handling in various areas of food processing and manufacturing industry.

These vacuum suction cups provide gentle and safe handling of nearly all food products. Each series has a distinct design and load capacity, making it possible to select the most optimal gripping solution for a concrete workpiece. Whether we talk small and delicate products or large and awkward to lift/move ones, the SofTouch Suction Solution can easily manage it all.  

The core principle of this lifting solution is to move workpieces through utilization of vacuum technology. The pick and place handling is performed by initiation of difference in atmospheric pressure inside and outside of suction cup, right at the moment of contact with workpiece. The firmness of grip is usually regulated by vacuum flow and suction cup design. 

This vacuum handling solution is ideal for both first and second-hand applications, meaning that excellent performance is guaranteed at the beginning as well as at the end of line.  

Moreover, based on our follow up data, we can proudly say that this gripping solution continues to deliver great results in different sectors of food processing industry. To name a few, we have observed significant improvements in automated handling of raw products (ex. meat, poultry, fish) and countless packaging operations.

The SofTouch Suction Solution enables to enhance performance of robotic arm without compromising on safety, speed, nor quality. At all times operational environment and workpiece specifications are taken into consideration to insure both optimal performance as well as safety of operation.
