Industrial vacuum technology specialist Piab has expanded its range of Duraflex BX suction cups to include three new models in small diameters for the pharmaceutical and consumer goods industries.

The suction cups are said to offer improved sealing capabilities for products with porous, uneven or textured surfaces, such as medical products and plastic or metal parts, allowing manufacturers to increase line productivity and reduce energy consumption.

The Duraflex BX range now includes the 10mm, 15mm and 20mm suction cup sizes (models BX10P, BX15P and BX20P).

The range is now available in eight diameters from 10mm to 110mm to handle a wider range of products and applications.

Piab’s Duraflex BX suction cups are said to offer increased flexibility for product handling.

They are more pliable to different materials than conventional suction cups, making them suitable for use in applications such as carton erecting, case and bin packing, palletising, de-palletising and rotary feeding in the packaging, pharmaceutical, plastic and consumer goods industries.

To further enhance manufacturing flexibility, the suction cups are available in single-hardness or dual-hardness versions.

The dual-hardness suction cup combines a strong and stable bellow with a soft and flexible lip.

This reduces downtime caused by dropped parts and allows manufacturers to run their machines at higher speeds, increasing production capacity.

The Duraflex BX range also features a strong, wear-resistant and elastic polyurethane material, ensuring durability.

The small Duraflex BX suction cups are environmentally friendly and feature a separate fitting and recyclable rubber.

In addition, increased sealing capability reduces energy consumption as a smaller vacuum system with lower feed pressure is required compared with traditional suction cups.
