Silicone suction cups

Silicone suction cups
The F26 and F33 silicone suction cups are designed for opening bags in the consumer and food industry. The cups provide a strong, secure grip when handling difficult to grip plastic-film material.

The flat shape of the cups — in 26 and 33-mm diameters — has a very thin conformable lip with a cleat design underneath, specially made to prevent the film/sheet from being sucked in, thus preventing damage while enhancing lifting force.

The cup’s sealing properties compensate for leakage, letting users avoid unopened bags, preventing machine slowdowns, and designing a more-efficient handling solution. Operating temperature range is -40 to 392°F.
