EXAIR’s Modular E-Vac vacuum generators offer low cost, compressed air powered vacuums for lifting, “pick and place,” clamping, chucking, and surface mounting applications. The vacuum pumps provide instantaneous response and are available in many sizes that offer a variety of vacuum levels and flowrates. They are maintenance free and have no moving parts. The vacuum generators have a high efficiency, single-stage design that minimizes air consumption, provides increased cycle speeds, and eliminates fluctuations in vacuum. The lightweight, aluminum construction is compact and easy to install at the point of use, which is a good fit for lifting applications where fast attach and release times are needed. Mounting holes are provided. Seven low-vacuum units are available up to 21″ Hg (71 kPa) to generate more airflow to overcome porosity and leakage when used with porous materials such as cardboard. Seven high-vacuum units are available up to 27″ Hg (91 kPa) for non-porous materials such as glass, steel sheet, and plastic. Kit configurations include vacuum cups, fittings, tubing and a mounting clip.
