Note!

  • Depending on the application, vacuum cups are subject to mechanical and chemical stresses. The data serve therefore only as guidelines.
  • Special vacuum cups fitted with felt linings are extremely low-marking and can be deployed at temperatures up to a max. of 500 °C (932 °F)
  • Material colors may change, but the quality remains unaffected.
  • Material colors: bg = beige, bl = blue, br = brown, g = green, ge = yellow, gr = gray, or = orange, r = red, sw = black, tr = transparent, w = white
