VP20-AS Mid Series Venturi Vacuum Generator with Air Saver Technology

VP20-AS Series
Vaccon’s Air Saver Generators are an all-pneumatic systems that minimizes compressed air usage by creating, monitoring and maintaining vacuum for safe energy efficient operations.

For pick and place applications handling non-porous materials, the Air Saver generators will maintain a strong holding force, conserve compressed air, and hold the part even if the compressed air supply is interrupted providing an extra level of safety when handling large loads.

For vessel evacuation applications such as wood and composite clamping, Air Saver generators maintain vacuum for long periods of time and only consume compressed air to overcome system leaks resulting in 90% air savings.
