Taby, Sweden – Piab’s Kenos® KVG series of vacuum grippers is extended to include the option of using suction cups rather than of the technical foam pads offered as standard. The trendy vacuum grippers can now be put together with suction cups from Piab’s flexible and durable suction cup series DURAFLEX® BX as well as the generic Value Line® series.
“This unique suction cup option for Kenos® KVG vacuum grippers will help our customers to better address certain materials or items that might be particularly overwhelming to grip. It is designed as an alternative to the foam grip used in standard models, and will extend the range of applications that can be served by Kenos® KVG vacuum grippers,” says Josef Karbassi, Vice President of Piab’s Automation Division.
Using Piab’s proprietary air-driven multi-stage COAX® technology to give highly productive vacuum generation, the Kenos® KVG gripper series is designed to safely grip, lift and handle objects, with focus on packaging and furniture industries. Standard models use an easily replaceable technical foam pad that molds itself around objects to give a strong grip regardless of shape or dimensions. FDA approved foam pads are available, and the number of pitch holes and the thickness of the foam can be varied to suit different applications.
