New Release: FIPA Heavy-Duty Suspensions Optimize Positioning Accuracy


Maintenance-free and robust: The new SZ-NIV-HD series of heavy-duty suspensions from FIPA GmbH offers innovative vacuum components for dynamic handling and short cycle times in rough production environments. “High-quality bearing material and design improvements ensure an exceptionally long service life,” says Rainer Mehrer, CEO of FIPA.

Spring plungers, also called spring loaded suction fingers, ensure that the attached suction cups handle sensitive products gently and protect the grippers from collision damage, “ says Rainer Mehrer, President of FIPA. “The new design of our SZ-NIV-HD series and the use of high-quality bearing material now ensure not only optimized product lifecycles but also maintenance-free service.”

One of the key reasons for the long service life of FIPA’s heavy-duty suspensions is the high-quality IGUS plain bearing, which offers high abrasion resistance and excellent sliding properties with minimum play. The lubricant embedded in the bushing material ensures smooth running and thus maintenance-free operation throughout the entire service life.

In addition, the lubricant mitigates the build-up of dust particles that could accumulate in the plain bearing. Stainless steel shafts and the optional rotation protection make this new product perfect for industrial production environments, significantly improving accuracy and durability.

Powerful, reliable, cutting-edge products that work for you - that’s FIPA.
