Gimatic expands product range with launch of vacuum product offering
New offering enables customers greater flexibility in designing optimal automation systems that aim to increase efficiency & productivity.
Suction cups, vacuum pumps, sensors, and related accessories allow Gimatic’s customers to handle different objects in various industrial sectors with low energy consumption and reduced downtime. Gimatic is a business within Barnes Group’s Automation strategic business unit.
The Gimatic VG range of suction cups consists of about 900 products and includes high-quality materials such as double-hardness polyurethane, silicone (available in the FDA-compliant version for direct handling of unpackaged food), hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber (HNBR), and nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR). These synthetic rubbers are free of paint-wetting impairment substances (PWIS), making them ideal in applications where any contamination of the material must be avoided. Thanks to suction cup models suitable for the most demanding applications, we can guarantee a secure grip on uneven surfaces such as those of snacks and packaged bars. Gimatic suction cups are divided into 18 product families, each with specific characteristics that make them suitable for the packaging, food, pharma, plastic, metal sheet, wood, glass, and automotive
The EJ range of cartridges and vacuum pumps consists of approximately 150 different items divided into 8 product families. Gimatic cartridges are available in 3 sizes, each offered in 3 different versions. They are extremely efficient, compact, and lightweight and allow integration onboard the machine – right where the vacuum is required – thus maximizing the gripping system’s performance and reducing its energy consumption. Gimatic vacuum pumps include manifolds in aluminum or POM and are capable of integrating additional functions such as the automatic release of the object being handled without additional solenoid valves. In addition to suspensions, ball joints, and vacuum actuators, the range of vacuum products includes release systems, vacuum switches of different types that can be easily integrated on Gimatic vacuum pumps, and accessories such as vacuum filters.
