Vacuum Control Products by Numatics

The Numatics vacuum control product line consists of the following components:

  • Vacuum generators that include single-stage ejectors for non-porous materials such as metal, glass or plastic; multi-stage ejectors to handle porous materials such as wood or cardboard; and compact ejectors that integrate a sensor, valve, filter, I-O link, and compressed air intelligence into one compact assembly.
  • Electric vacuum pumps to handle applications where there is not enough compressed air available or when the application requires its own vacuum source.
  • Suction cups, including flat and bellows-style, for a wide range of applications and materials – porous, non-porous, corrugated, fabrics, and food-related products.
  • For automotive applications such as press room/stamping and body assembly, Numatics’ automotive style suction cups are optimized to handle sheet metal with oily surfaces at maximum cycle rates without slippage.

“Numatics now offers the industry’s widest range of vacuum components that allow customers to select cost-effective solutions for their specific material handling applications,” said Robert W. Kemple, Jr., executive vice president, sales and marketing — Americas, ASCO Numatics. “With our deep application expertise, we size components to the customers’ vacuum requirements and provide a total solution — where vacuum generators and suction cups are optimized for the longest life, greatest reliability, and highest throughput.”

For automotive applications such as press room/stamping and body assembly, Numatics’ automotive style suction cups are optimized to handle sheet metal with oily surfaces at maximum cycle rates without slippage.

For packaging lines, Numatics solutions generate high production rates through the use of a specially formulated cup material. These cups last four to eight times longer than conventional components, providing a highly cost-effective vacuum gripping system.

“All of our customer’s solutions are tested to ensure they get the best vacuum cup fit for their application,” said Kemple., electric vacuum pumps, suction cups
