Vacuum Cups

Vacuum Cups

Vaccon offers a wide range of vacuum cup styles, materials, sizes and capabilities. Fittings in multiple styles are available individually or as a cup assembly for each cup group. The dual durometer and non-marking cups have their own fitting groups. Please consult the downloadable product data sheets below for the correct fitting for the cup(s) you are looking to purchase. As is true in most vacuum applications, there is more than one correct answer. In order to successfully find the best cups and pumps for a specific task, it is helpful to review our Vacuum Cup reference manterials:
 
Visual Vacuum Cup Application Page Images of vacuum cup applications with customer supplied samples
Vacuum Cup Selection Guide Guidance for determining the correct cup size and type for your applications
Vacuum Cup Specifications Materials specifications for Vaccon Cups, including temperature ranges, wear and oil resistance and typical applications

Unsure exactly what type of vacuum cup is needed for your application? Contact our Technical Support Team for support on finding the right cup. Often times, finding the right cup takes trial and error. Short on time or resources to test your products and cups yourself? Take advantage of our free in-house testing services. Send us samples and we will size and test the correct cup and/or pump for you and send a video of the results.

Cup Type Product Image Description Features and Benefits Downloads
Bellows Bellows cups have a pliable outer rim that will conform to curved or uneven surfaces while the bellows sections compensate for inconsistent stack heights. Under vacuum the accordion-style bellows cup will collapse on contact. The collapsing action simulates a short cylinder stroke lifting the product for a short distance, possibly saving the need for a separate lifting mechanism.
  • Single and multi bellows models
  • Vinyl, silicone, ntirile, and chloroprene materials
  • Optional oil resistant vinyl and polyurenthane material

Dual Durometer Dual Durometer Cups are a durable combination of polyurethane with 30 and 60 durometers (stiffness), offering long wear and excellent sealing capability for uneven and porous surfaces. Available in single and double bellows models.

Egg Egg Cups safely handle delicate, round objects such as eggs and ceramics and can be used in the food processing and fiber optic testing industries.
  • Available in 34 mm diameter models in 
    red and translucent silicone, 2.5 bellows
  • 37 mm red silicone model with 5.5 bellows

Flat and Universal Flat cups without cleats are strong and flexible and work well in applications that do not require lifting heavy loads. Flat cups with cleats are strong with a rigid, low profile that will lift heavy loads vertically. Well suited for smooth, flat, heavy objects such as steel, glass (television picture tubes) and coated corrugated. 

Universal cups can handle flat or slightly curved surfaces.
  • Flat cups with cleats lift without “peeling” away from the product surface or deforming the object

Metal Detectable Metal Detectable Cups have bits of metal embedded into the cup silicone material, used where contamination is a concern, such as in food processing. If pieces break off, they can be found with in-line metal detection equipment.
  • 40/42 mm in red or blue silicone, 4.5 bellows
  • 30 mm flat model with cleats
  • FDA approved material for use in food processing

Oval Like cleated cups, Oval cups have heavy load capabilities due to their rigid design and large vacuum work area. Oval cups have the largest lifting force because they provide the most surface area for a given footprint.
  • Include aluminum insert with 1 or 2 NPT female fittings
  • Standard vinyl material with optional oil resistant vinyl grey silicone and polyurenthane

Ultra Miniature Ultra-Miniature Cups are ideal for use in picking up extremely small parts such as computer chips, Ultra-miniature cups may be used in laboratory and food processing environments.
  • 0.09" to 0.75" (2.4 to 19.1 mm) outer diameter
  • Available in high temperature silicone and ESD-safe silicone or BUNA-N
