Transair Air System

Jointed Mountings

Ball joints and Flexolinks permit the suction pads to adapt themselves better to uneven workpieces.

Basic Data
  • Connection: G1/4” and G1/2” Deflection: max. 12° Rubber buffer (vulcanised into position) as a joint

    Application Areas
  • Polydirectional joint mounting made from high-quality steel with vulcanise-bonded rubber buffer for adjusting the suction pad to uneven surfaces; automatic resetting.
  • Application

  • Flexolink for handling of workpieces with sloping surfaces with the aid of large-size suction pads or suction plates.
  • Handling of large sheets of materials (such as wood or sheet metal) which may sag when lifted (Flexolink prevents the sheet from being pulled off due to one-sided forces).
  • Can be used together with spring plungers to compensate for differing workpiece heights and uneven surfaces.
  • Automatic resetting..
  • Construction

  • Flexible mounting made of high-quality steel with a rubber.
  • Maximum deflection angle limited by a screw-in stop buffer (vulcanized into position) as a joint (2).
  • Force is transferred via a shaped metal connection within the joint.
  • Flats on upper and lower halves for damage-free installation (4).
  • Connection thread for top connection (1) and (3) in various sizes.
  • Deflection (max.) 12°.
  • Your advantages

  • Very good adaptation to sloping workpiece surfaces.
  • Automatic reset function to neutral position.
  • Reduced wear on suction pads when they are placed on sloping surfaces.
  • Vacuum-tight design with integrated protection against damage.
  • Highlights

  • Fully flexible mounting of suction pads and suction plates.
  • Joint made of rubber and metal.
  • Low center of flexure.
  • High-strength connection between rubber and metal parts.
