Vacuum technology

The world of RIEGLER vacuum technology

Vacuum ejectors, suction pads, system additions

Vacuum – what is it anyway? We know about it. We read about it. But the whole thing feels kind of flimsy. According to DIN 28400 a vacuum is defined as follows: “Vacuum is the state of a gas when the pressure of the gas, and thus the particle-number density, is lower within than it is outside of its container, or when the pressure of the gas is less than 300 mbar, i.e. lower than the smallest atmospheric pressure which occurs on the surface of the Earth”.

Vacuum generators (vacuum ejectors)

Our vacuum generators are exclusively pneumatically operated and are based on the Venturi principle. Compressed air is introduced into the ejector and flows through a nozzle. A vacuum is generated immediately behind the nozzle outlet. This results in air being drawn in through the vacuum inlet. This air and the compressed air are then released to the outside via the exhaust air duct, e.g. a silencer.

Suction pad

Vacuum suction pads are used wherever objects, parts and packaging are to be lifted, transported, rotated or similarly handled. Both smooth and slightly rough surfaces can be handled. Suction pads serve as connecting elements between the vacuum generator and part. The individual suction pad models are handled differently. Flat suction cups stick to parts almost instantly and handle them very dynamically. Oval flat suction cups offer the advantage that their suction power is significantly increased with narrow and longitudinal parts in particular. Bellows suction cups compensate for height differences and uneven surfaces. They are particularly suitable for handling sensitive parts.

Connecting parts

We offer the right connection nipples for all of our suction pads.

Vacuum sensor in mini design

Despite their small dimensions and low weight, miniature vacuum sensors offer high measurement accuracy. They measure vacuum values directly at the suction pad and evaluate them decentrally. They can process the output signals using a PLC, for example.

Flow valve

These ball seat valves close the vacuum line when the suction pads are not in use and maintain the vacuum system. The exchangeable sieve protects them against contamination.

Vacuum pressure switch

You can install our vacuum pressure switches universally to monitor all safety functions. Use them to optimise your cycle times or control circuits. Their compact design and low weight allow them to be installed directly at the point of application. The combined vacuum pressure switches can be used for all special vacuum and pressure applications. Their vacuum limit value can be adjusted and the vacuum continuously monitored. Our electronic vacuum switches are equipped with a digital display and two switching outputs. Adjust the switching point and hysteresis using an adjusting screw.
