Bag Lips for Suction Cups

Bag Lips for Suction Cups

The next generation of piGRIP bag lips, known as BGI, includes an internal retainer piece and three additional diameter sizes. Six diameter sizes are available — 25, 34, 41, 48, 63, and 80 mm.

The original piGRIP bag lips (BG) handled most types of bags and pouches. The special lip design, along with the rigid and strong piGRIP bellows/body allows for bag-handling speeds and accelerations never attained before in automation equipment for bags/pouches.

The new retainer piece prevents thin bags or films from being drawn into the cup, thus improving grip performance and eliminating marks on the thin-bag materials. Both the lip and retainer piece are made of FDA-approved materials.

A new stronger bonding solution between the lip and bellows prevent lips from coming off during working cycles. A new locking sleeve, (retainer) guarantees the lip stays in position.
