Piab has launched a new suction end effector range for industrial robots.

The company says its MX suction cup family is exceptional for picking various objects primarily for the Logistics, warehousing, e-commerce, and re-cycling industries.

This multi-purpose, energy efficient suction cup boasts extreme gripping capabilities on many surfaces and materials. The MX suction cup has the ability to create a hard seal when using a low-vacuum flow, which contributes to a more sustainable energy output.

The MX suction cups are available in five sizes: 35, 42, 50, 57, and 65 mm in diameter and are compatible with our extensive piGRIP fitting program, allowing for fitting options tailored to your needs. For extra safety and robustness, opt for the aluminum clamp fittings.
