When, in the industrial field, there is the need to move large sheets or long wooden panels, in general we use several suction cups, which can also be outside the sheets in the case of products of different shapes and surfaces.
Considering the point of origin and the length of the sheet/plate to be taken, the suction cups are activated only if they are entirety inside the sheet or the panel with an intelligent use of vacuum.
The special probe valve (code 190230), on the outside diameter of the suction cup lip, activates vacuum only when it is completely on the plate.
In this way it is possible, among other things, to avoid the use of vacuum solenoid valves, able to select or deselect the suction cups – certainly effective but more complex and expensive.
Vuototecnica valves are made of anodized aluminum and last over time.

In the automated making of cardboard boxes, a lot of dust is created inside the machines.
As end users, you know very well what it means to have clogged ejectors: downtime for cleaning and maintenance and consequent loss of time and money.
In the video below you can see Vuototecnica 150210 ejector in action, able to solve the main problems resulting from the use of cartoning machines – including clogging.
As you can see, a customer replaced the ejectors already fitted as standard on the machine with Vuototecnica ejectors.
Advantages were evident from the beginning. First of all, as regards the cleaning of the suction circuit (the integrated automatic counter-blow of Vuototecnica ejectors would be enough to persuade the skeptics).
Secondly, because the suction cups showed greater grip and release reactivity and greater durability. The counter-blow avoids that the cardboard smears on the lip of the suction cups.
150210 ejectors you can see in the video were equipped with Vuototecnica Free Flow SSX1/4″ gas exhaust silencers, with high soundproofing power and able to completely solve the risk of clogging which we can have with the compressed air silencers (generally closed) on the market and often mounted on the venturimeters of cartoning machines.
The cardboard dust and the eventual condensation of the compressed air supply are two elements that together form a sort of plug on the drain of the generally closed compressed air silencers.
Vuototecnica SSXs, on the contrary, always offer free air passage and an outlet for aspirated dust and air mist.

The quality of a product depends on the guarantees that the brand is able to give over time to customers, on the effectiveness of the solutions.
For this reason Vuototecnica is keen to mark each product, including suction cups, with the logo and the identification code. Vuototecnica makes a promise to the customer through this identification.
It is a mark of recognizability that allows customers to immediately identify potential false or imitation, which are not Vuototecnica manufacturing.
If you were standing in front of a fake, the quality would not be the same. It would be like purchasing a fake Rolex: it might work but, before our eyes, day after day, we would see the difference in features and functionality, and above all the lifetime is not guaranteed.
Always check the logo and identification code are carried on each product!
