Piab BGX bag handling suction cup

Thursday, 16 June, 2022 | Supplied by: Pneumatic Products


Bags made of thin plastic film such as those used for salad leaves and fresh herbs, or the aluminium foil bags used for crisps and other snacks are flimsy and often just as fragile as their contents. New biodegradable and recyclable materials are becoming increasingly popular, and with this the challenges of bag handling increase.

Piab’s BGX bag handling suction cup has been developed to deal with the challenges of flimsy, thin and oversized bags. The lip of the bag cup is designed with good sealing capability even at low vacuum level.

Produced as a one-piece suction cup with two bellows, the suction cup can pick bags of different heights with a safe and stable hold of the product in the fast/semi-fast robot applications. It is configurable for applications in e-commerce, FMCG, secondary food picking, fashion and other industries.

The suction cup is made of FDA- and EU-approved blue silicone for direct contact with food and is suitable for both high and low temperature applications. It can be configured by choosing between three sizes of the lip diameters 34, 41 and 48 mm, and six different aluminium push-in fittings designed to attach safely to the robust neck of the cups.
