Vacuum Generators create industrial vacuum at the application's point of use utilizing the venturi effect and fluid flow from compressed air or gases. They are compact and light weight units designed for end-of-arm tooling (EOAT) on robotic arms or end effectors generating suction gripping force at the point of use while minimizing inertia. Vacuum levels as low as -27 inHG (-93 kPA) can be attained with multi-stage generators with suction flow greater than 7 SCFM (200 L/min). They can be configured into manifolds or mounted as individual units with options including: energy savings, compact, multi-stage, point-of-use, high speed release and integrated generator with suction cups.
The ZK2*A series is an energy-saving generator with 93% reduced air consumption. It has a 50% increase in suction flow compared to other single stage SMC generators. The ZK2*A also has various mounting options to choose from.
The ZZKJ is a Fieldbus-compatible vacuum manifold with built-in pressure sensor and generator units with energy saving functions. The ZZKJ manifold allows for remote control and monitoring of the pressure of individual generators in the manifold.
Vacuum Generator series ZL series is a multi-stage, high-efficiency vacuum generator, which operates at 150% efficiency (compared to about 40% for other units). For each scfm of compressed air it consumes, the ZL generates an incredible 1.587 scfm of suction flow. The ZL is available with a built-in vacuum switch with digital readout for design flexibility. Other features include built-in suction filter, exhaust silencer, and one-touch tube fittings. Its' compact design allows for mounting from three sides.
Vacuum Generator series ZH offers a compact and light weight point-of-use generator with standard flow and large flow capability. There are two types available: box type with a silencer exhaust and body ported type with individual exhaust. Also, these generators are often smaller and lighter than the bulky vacuum lines used in central vacuum systems. Available in various nozzle diameters and a number of port sizes.
Vacuum Generator and vacuum cup are integrated for space savings. The two-stage vacuum generator increases suction flow up to 50% and reduces air consumptions up to 30%. Design features allows for daisy-chain piping and the mounting with lock plates makes for easier maintenance.
Vacuum Generator series ZU combine design simplicity with high performance. Simply plug an air supply tube in one end, and vacuum is ready at the other end. Also, these generators are often smaller and lighter than the bulky vacuum lines used in central vacuum systems. The slim ZU generators are extra compact. A built-in exhaust silencer keeps generator noise to a minimum. Available in four nozzle diameters and a number of port sizes.
