Any­thing is pos­si­ble – The eT-Grip­per suc­tion box­es by Eu­rotech can lift loads with any type of sur­face, from smooth to rough sawn

Wood, met­al, ce­ram­ics and oth­er ma­te­ri­als can be dif­fi­cult to pro­cess. Boards and pan­els are fre­quent­ly un­even, warped or un­du­lat­ing; they can have cracks, holes, bores, gaps or knot­holes. Their sur­face can be cov­ered in dust, saw­dust, pack­ag­ing sup­ports or bark residues. Eu­rotech suc­tion box­es stand in wher­ev­er suc­tion plates fall short. The vac­u­um suc­tion box­es in the eT-Grip­per se­ries ef­fort­less­ly han­dle a wide range of ma­te­ri­als, di­men­sions and sur­faces.



The eT-Grip­per suc­tion box­es by Eu­rotech are pre­des­tined for han­dling loads with var­i­ous sur­faces, di­men­sions and / or un­de­fined load­ing po­si­tions. They al­low you to lift loads with wide­ly dif­fer­ent char­ac­ter­is­tics – in­clud­ing rough-sawn and dusty items – one af­ter an­oth­er with­out mod­i­fy­ing your equip­ment. This makes the eT-Grip­per de­vices par­tic­u­lar­ly suit­able for use in sawmills and the tim­ber and fur­ni­ture in­dus­try.


“An eT-Grip­per can even lift mul­ti­ple dif­fer­ent pieces si­­mul­­ta­ne­ous­­ly,”


Michael Renger, Head of Sales, ex­plains.


“A line of cans, for in­stance, loose­ly ad­joined boards, or items of dif­fer­ent shapes and sizes.”



“De­pend­ing on the task at hand, you equip your suc­tion box with a suc­tion mat or mul­ti­ple bel­low suc­tion cups in or­der to adapt to the load per­fect­ly,”


Renger con­tin­ues. Whether an eT-Grip­per is equipped with a suc­tion mat or bel­low suc­tion cups de­pends on the re­quire­ments of the task. If the loads to be lift­ed are heav­i­ly struc­tured, rough­ly sawn or porous, a suc­tion mat is used. It cre­ates a vac­u­um-tight con­nec­tion be­tween the load and the suc­tion box by seal­ing the rough sur­face of the load while off­set­ting its lev­el dif­fer­ences. Dif­fer­ent hole pat­terns in the suc­tion mats and thick­ness lev­els be­tween 10 and 30 mil­lime­tres en­able the suc­tion box­es to adapt to in­di­vid­u­al tasks even more ef­fec­tive­ly. The suc­tion mats, which are made of EPDM (ethy­lene propy­lene di­ene rub­ber), are avail­able in dif­fer­ent grades with open, half-closed or closed cells. They are fit­ted with eas­i­ly de­tach­able, ad­he­sive foil to fa­cil­i­tate the easy re­place­ment of worn-out mats.


For lift­ing un­struc­tured, thin or un­sta­ble loads, the suc­tion box­es are usu­al­ly equipped with small bel­low suc­tion cups, which es­tab­lish the nec­es­sary sta­bil­i­ty even for thin and frag­ile boards. The suc­tion car­pet in the bel­low suc­tion cups suf­fers from less wear than a suc­tion mat. In ad­di­tion, a sin­gle worn-out suc­tion cup is eas­i­er to re­place than an en­tire mat: this saves not on­ly time but al­so mon­ey, mak­ing the pro­cess more sus­tain­able and low-main­te­nance.


Eu­rotech suc­tion box­es can sim­pli­fy many tasks in the in­dus­try, craft sec­tors and lo­gis­tics. They can be used for robots, por­tals and lift­ing de­vices, which saves a lot of time at var­i­ous stages of the pro­cess: pack­ing, load­ing, pal­letis­ing, pick­ing, sort­ing, etc.


Thanks to the mod­u­lar de­sign of the low-main­te­nance eT-Grip­pers, all com­po­nents are eas­i­ly ac­ces­si­ble: the suc­tion box­es, which are built from ma­te­ri­al-ef­fi­cient light met­al pro­files, can be opened and cleaned with lit­tle ef­fort. This in­creas­es their ser­vice life and en­sures hy­gien­ic, clean lift­ing. The mod­u­lar struc­ture fur­ther al­lows you to switch ef­fort­less­ly from suc­tion car­pets to suc­tion mats and vice ver­sa.


Our high-qual­i­ty ma­te­ri­al, ex­cel­lent work­man­ship and so­phis­ti­cat­ed tech­nol­o­gy en­sure re­li­a­bil­i­ty and a long ser­vice life. Vac­u­um suc­tion box­es by Eu­rotech have a clear, mod­u­lar struc­ture with low wear rates and on­ly a small num­ber of in­di­vid­u­al com­po­nents, which makes them par­tic­u­lar­ly ef­fi­cient han­dling tools.


Eu­rotech of­fers a wide range of vac­u­um-gen­er­at­ing de­vices such as fans, pumps and ejec­tors. By choos­ing the right vac­u­um gen­er­a­tor, you can en­sure suf­fi­cient hold­ing pow­er at all times.
