Suction Cup Shapes
Suction cups from Schmalz can be divided into universal suction cups and suction cups for special applications. Universal suction cups cover a wide range of requirements. Suction cups for special applications were developed to meet the requirements of individual industries. They may be characterized by special properties, such as the handling of thin-walled and greasy body panels in the sheet metal industry or of porous and structured workpieces in the wood industry.
The following shapes are generally distinguished:
- Flat suction cups
- Bellows suction cups
Each suction cup shape offers advantages that are reinforced and optimized by the combination with a suitable material. The available suction cup materials are described in detail in the section “Suction cup materials“.
