Product modification permits faster release of workpieces
Until now, the rubber pads on the bottom of the floating suction pad SBS had a flat surface.
Depending on the workpiece, it sometime happened that a vacuum was generated between the rubber pad and the surface of the workpiece.
In such cases, the workpiece was released more slowly, i.e. with a delay, when the suction pad was switched off.
In order to prevent this, we have now changed the bottom surface of the rubber pad.
· The floating suction pad SBS now has a modified rubber pad.
· The bottom surface of the pad has an integrated slot 0.3 mm deep.
· No vacuum can now be formed between the pad and the workpiece surface.
· The technical properties of the suction pad remain unchanged.
Workpieces are always released reliably and quickly.
