Point of Use

Edco USA provides a wide variety of Vacuum cups. Most cups are round because that is a strong shape that resists collapse under vacuum pressure and it efficiently distributes load forces through the cup walls to the fitting. A circular shape also provides the greatest area for the amount of space it occupies. Industrial cups usually employ a metal fitting for mounting the cup and for connecting a vacuum source to allow the inner volume to be evacuated.

Suction cups are made of rubber and include a flared lip to form a flexible seal against a work piece to allow the cup to be evacuated with a vacuum pump. Several cups can be connected to a central pump, or, a small vacuum pump can be used for each cup.

EDCO USA vacuum cup rubber is specially formulated to be non-marking and no mold release agent is used in the manufacturing process to eliminate surface residue.
