New fitting for easy positioning

PIAB upgrades the fitting style for our oval DURAFLEX® suction cup, OF25x70P. A male G3/8” fitting insert with a swivel function prior to the actual locking sequence is now available for both the red (PU40) and green (PU60) cups

The fitting insert is made of brass and uses a rotating function until the suction cup is completely locked/tightened. This will facilitate the exact positioning of the suction cup, which is very important when an oval cup is used on an oblong and narrow surface. A mesh filter on the fitting insert keeps coarse particles out of the vacuum system and the fitting insert has a female hexagon key handle on the inside.


  • Suitable for flat and rough surfaces.
  • Fair stability and little inherent movement.
  • Recommended when the lifting force is parallel to the surface of the object.
  • Cleats prevent thin, sensitive objects from being deformed and give extra friction when the lifting force is parallel to the surface of the object.
  • DURAFLEX® are suction cups manufactured in a specially developed material that features the elasticity of rubber and wear resistance of polyurethane. The material does not leave any marks on the objects handled.
  • Swivel option, prior to the locking operation, for easy positioning of the oval cup.
