VACCON Customers and Distributors,

VACCON, a 50-year-old family-owned vacuum business, has been absorbed by a large corporation that has killed the VACCON brand, extended delivery times, and increased prices by 18% in 2022 alone.

EDCO has many products comparable or interchangeable with VACCON products. Give us a call and we will be glad to assist you in converting from VACCON products. Additional VACCON interchanges will be added to our product offering as inquiries guide us.

Industrial Universal Vacuum Cups

Universal vacuum cups are like flat vacuum cups except they have no bottom cleats. As a result, deflection is higher than flat vacuum cups and the cup area exposed to vacuum becomes smaller as vacuum level deepens and the cup lips flatten out. Under a heavy pull, a universal vacuum cup will “tent” up and the effective vacuum area will increase until it equals that of a flat vacuum cup, at which point, it will have similar load capacity.
Thin workpiece materials can be drawn in toward the cup center and essentially seal of vacuum from the universal vacuum cup lips so that the effective area becomes so small that the cup cannot pick up the workpiece safely.
Universal vacuum cups have very little angular compensation ability so they should always pick up perpendicular to a flat workpiece surface.
