The new Value Line products, comprising of 21 suction cups and 2 small light-weight ejectors


The suction cups are available in flat-concave, bellows and long bellows shapes with diameters from 20-75 mm. The durable TPE-U material provides good wear resistance.


The small and lightweight vacuum ejectors can be installed directly on the hose very close to the point of vacuum. This feature provides the benefit of faster evacuation times to keep up with higher cycling machine speeds. The inline vacuum ejectors are also suitable for cleanroom environments and are ideal for applications in the range of 20-50% vacuum levels.


This product line is ideal for more basic applications, where machine speeds and surfaces to be gripped are less challenging, such as with case/carton erectors, loading/unloading or sorting sheets into metal forming machines and parts removal from injection molds.  All products are available globally with "off-the-shelf" delivery.
