Applications for sheet metal handling and metal processing

Product recommendations sheet metal handling and metal processing

 

Whether you want to move metal sheets automatically or manually, at FIPA you will find just the right handling products to meet your needs.

Oil-resistant and silicone-free vacuum suction cups ensure accurate position handling of sheet metal parts, even for high cycle times.

 

FIPA even has the fitting solution for the manual handling of sheet metal parts - the FIPALIFT tube lifter. It allows metal sheets of up to 290 kg to be gently, safely and accurately put into place and released by only one person in a short cycle time.

 

The wide range of vacuum cups and other accessories allows you to handle metal sheets without leaving any bumps, scratches or residues that could interfere with painting. In doing so, it does not matter whether the sheets are textured, smooth, oily, non-magnetic or hot.

 

Flat vacuum cups for dynamic sheet handling - SM-F

  • Exceptionally long lifetime - maximises number of cycles and thus significantly reduces the cost of operation
  • Reliable, non-slip handling of oily sheets thanks to “anti-slip” supporting ribs.
  • Good absorption of lateral forces
  • Supports help to prevent deep-drawing or deformation of thin sheets
  • Vulcanised connection thread ensures a secure fit
  • Leak-free suction even with slightly curved surfaces due to flexible sealing lip
  • Diameter: 30 - 125 mm

Bellows vacuum cups with 1.5 folds for dynamic sheet handling - SM-B

  • Exceptionally long lifetime - maximises number of cycles and thus significantly reduces the cost of operation
  • Reliable, non-slip handling of oily sheets thanks to “anti-slip” supporting ribs.
  • Good absorption of lateral forces
  • Internal supports help to prevent deep-drawing or deformation of thin sheets
  • Leak-free suction even with curved surfaces due to flexible sealing lip
  • Fold geometry allows handling of three dimensional shaped sheets
  • Secure fit due to vulcanised connection thread
  • Diameter: 30 - 125 mm

Oval vacuum cups for dynamic handling of oily and dry metal sheets - SM-O

  • Available as flat cups or with 1.5 bellows
  • Maximised number of cycles and significantly reduced cost of operation due to exceptionally long lifetime
  • Slip-free handling of oily and dry metal sheets due to anti-slip cleats
  • Shear forces are good absorped
  • Deep drawing or deformation of thin sheets is prevented by internal supports
  • Leak-free suction even with curved surfaces due to flexible sealing lip
  • Ideally suited for use in constricted spaces
  • Bellow geometry at Bellows cups allows handling of three dimensional shaped sheets and ensures good attenuation when placed on a work-piece

Non-slip flat vacuum cups - SM-P

  • Distinct, radially encircling supporting ribs increase holding force
  • The firmly bolted fittings (from a diameter of 20 mm) ensure good process security
  • Diameter: 10 - 50 mm

Flat vacuum cups with safety sealing lips - SFU-S

  • High process reliability through multiple sealing lip
  • Good stability due to vulcanised retainer plate, as well as support surfaces for the product
  • Diameter: 30 - 225 mm

Heavy-duty flat vacuum suction plates - SFPL-D

  • Vulcanised steel carrier plate allows lifting of very heavy loads
  • Secure gripping of uneven surfaces thanks to additional inner sealing lip
  • Diameter: 160 - 300 mm

Vacuum suction plate with foamed sealing lip - SP-PLM

  • Good sealing of heavily textured surfaces
  • Cost-effective replacement of worn seals
  • Diameter: 35 - 300 mm

Flat XXL suction rings - SFR

  • Large, flat suction seals vulcanised on steel ring for handling very large loads
  • Connection through circular, circumferentially placed thread holes
  • Diameter: 450 - 920 mm

Oval vacuum suction plates - SOPL-S and SOPL-A

  • High suction force on a small footprint
  • Rubberised support surfaces help prevent warping of the product
  • Individual machine connection
  • Dimensions: 110x40 - 580x180 mm

Varioflex® bellows cups, 1.5 and 2.5 folds for dry sheets - SP-BX

  • Special polyurethane in two degrees of hardness (60° Shore A black, 30° Shore A red)
  • Soft lip for optimal sealing
  • Good adaptation to uneven product surfaces
  • Long service life and low wear
  • Short cycle times and high process reliability

Bellows vacuum suction plates - SBPL-E

  • Gentle handling of heavy, sensitive products
  • Good adaptation to concave or convex surfaces
  • Rubberised support surfaces prevent deformation of workpieces
  • Diameter: 150 - 350 mm

Suction plates with leakage reduction - SPLT

  • Reliable suction with variable product shapes in systems with multiple vacuum cups
  • Combination of 4x4 or 6x6 bellows vacuum cups with 2.5 folds
  • Flow restrictions prevent the collapse of the vacuum when individual vacuum cups
  • are not in use

FIPALIFT tube lifter


  • No complicated slinging of the load is omitted when using tube lifters
  • Processes will be quicker and more efficient
  • Employees will not be as tired from lifting heavy loads and they will remain motivated by using innovative technology
  • Applications: e.g. Handling sacks, packages, crates, boxes and containers in shrink-wrap in warehousing and logistic

Ultra-flexible vacuum lifter FIPA Spider for sheet metal processing


  • Special versions can be produced to meet customer needs
  • Low weight through lightweight construction with aluminium
  • Easy to operate per manual slide valve

Magnetic grippers

  • Secure handling of sheet metal and ferromagnetic workpieces with and without recesses

MG series

  • Combination of electronic and permanent magnet
  • High cycle times for thin and/or alloyed metal sheets thanks to negligible residual magnetism
  • after switching off the magnetic force
  • Holding force up to 700 N
  • No piping required
  • Very energy-efficient, as a short electrical pulse is only required for product release

PMG series

  • Pneumatic dual-action with permanent magnet
  • Holding force up to 400 N
  • Extremely wear-resistant, quick-change friction rings made from low-marking NBR
  • (hardness 70° Shore) prevent scratching as a result of contact between the workpiece
  • and grippers
  • Part control by monitoring piston position
