VPI-90H Inline Venturi Vacuum Generators

Vaccon VPI-90H inline venturi vacuum generator
Unlike standard venturi vacuum generators where the vacuum port is 90° from the supply port, Vaccon’s air-powered VPI-90H in-line venturi vacuum generators feature an air-supply port and vacuum port on the same axis to consolidate space.

VPI-90H generators vertically mount to robotic arms to create single or densely populated arrays of generator/cup combinations to accommodate and lift products of any size, shape, or weight.

Internal threads on the vacuum port enable vacuum cups to connect directly to the generator while the external threads attach directly to the end of arm tool. VPI-90H’s feature an additional vacuum port for a vacuum switch/sensor to ensure accurate part detection or for a connection to an externally supplied blow-off.
