Vacuum generators provide the vacuum level that is required for the handling task. The vacuum is created either pneumatically or electrically. Pneumatic vacuum generators implement short cycle times and can be integrated directly into the system due to their compact and lightweight design. Electrical vacuum generators are used in applications when compressed air is not available or when very high suction capacities are required.

Electrical vacuum generators
The nominal suction rate of all vacuum generators is given in l/min or m3/h. The values are based on an ambient pressure of 1,013 mbar (sea level) and an ambient temperature of 20°C. The maximum suction rate therefore indicates the volume flow that the vacuum generator evacuates from the environment (free flow).
Our selection aid contains a graphic that illustrates suction rate, it also provides additional information that should be observed when selecting the right vacuum generator.
