The following list covers just a small sample of the applications using vacuum or blower technology to hold or move. The images below the list show a few examples.
Air Beds (Medical)
Food Processing Machines
|Modified Atmosphere Packing
Pick & Place
Centralised Vacuum Systems
Screen Printing Machines
Vacuum Hold Down
Air knives offer a more efficient way to blow, clean, dry or cool parts, webs, conveyors and other surfaces.
Air is delivered to a plating tank via pipework, where it is blown through a pipe with small diameter holes. The air agitates the plating solution helping to ensure a consistent strength of solution is in touch with the items being plated.
Small intermittent use unit is used to give air to welded seamed inflatable structures
Air is passed through diffuser stones or pads to give oxygenation to aquatic life in pond or hatcheries.
Air assisted turner bars provide a convenient and reliable method of turning a web (usually through 90 degrees), via the necessary ‘lead-in’ and ‘lead-out’ path rollers, along with air blower motors.
Labels are blown from small bellows directly onto product when air is diverted from vacuum to pressure.
Waste anaesthetic gas is removed to filter units from operating theatres and waste is removed to collection vessels in dental practices.
Vacuum is applied via a plenum chamber beneath a perforated bed in order to hold a product in place for restoration or laser cutting/shaping.
Air is drawn through a set of filters then tested to analyse the enzyme levels in the local environment.
Small nozzles or pipes are positioned around the table/ conveyor and vacuum is applied and de-applied to pick then place the product in a variety of positions for either packing or processing.
A centralised vacuum comprises a series of interconnected hose connection points, located in optimum positions throughout the workplace. The operator simply connects carefully selected tools to the intake points, allowing rapid cleaning of surfaces or extraction from spillages to a centralised collection point. The vacuum cleaning systems can be designed to extract from any number of points simultaneously, improving feasibility when compared to individual mobile units for each area.
