Suction cups that hold fast to sheet metal

In many sectors that require sheet metal handling, vacuum suction cups have become an essential element of safety, reliabilityand productivity. With the company’s new CTC high-performance bell-type suction cups, Covalsays it is bringing manufacturers the best of both flat and bellows suction cups to enhance system efficiency.

The main feature of new CTC suction cups is the bell shape. This design has the strength and anti-slip qualities of flat suction cups, with the added abilities of bellows suction cups to grip complex or angular shapes.The CTC cup series has large deflection capability, adapting easily to gripping a variety of workpiece shapes.Furthermore, anti-slip cleats make it easy to move heavy, oily sheets quickly and efficiently, while their central stops ensure the tight gripping of thin sheets without deformation.

Typical applications include feeding machines such as folders and cutters, or picking up sheet metal or parts for transfer to stamping presses and storage. CTC suction cups are particularly suitable for use in the automotive sector, in processes that include stamping, fitting and assembly, for example. The company says it has long-standing partnerships with major car manufacturers, supplying them with products that meet their quality and productivity expectations.

CTC bell-type suction cups are available in four diameters from 40 to 100 mm and various mounting configurations (3/8G male or female and 32 mm square), to suit all types of application. Coval makes all of them from TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) for resistance to wear and oil.
