Too Hot to Handle

In honour of St George’s Day, be the saviour of the production line and slay all your “too hot to handle” problems with Simmatic’s vacuum solutions

Too Hot to Handle

Viton Vacuum Cups

Our specifically designed vacuum suction cups, moulded with a blend of high temperature Viton*, can withstand temperatures whilst safely manoeuvring products.

Viton* is a synthetic rubber polymer and commonly used in o-ring applications for aircraft engines, automotive fuel handling systems and other applications requiring high temperatures and low compression set.

Temperatures up to 400° Celsius!

In some manufacturing processes, sheet metal panels emerge from the production line at temperatures of up to 400° Celsius! Thanks to these high-quality suction cups from VMECA, this would be no battle for you or your kingdom. Our VF Series vacuum cups are capable of handling blanks as well as formed sheet metal parts and even convex surfaces. With metal panels, such as those used in the manufacture of vehicle bodies, the weight and therefore the thickness of the metal must, in almost all cases, be kept to a minimum. This means the panels distort easily, especially when hot. As well as dealing with high temperatures, Simmatic’s vacuum solution eliminates the risk of distortion, allowing the panels to be handled easily, reliably and with total confidence.
Our vacuum cups are silicone and PWIS-free. They are manufactured from advanced fluorocarbon-based materials so can resist very high temperatures for short periods. In addition, they leave no residue and produce virtually no marking of the panels, which means that subsequent finishing processes, such as painting, are entirely problem free.
