The main feature of the cup holders described in these pages is their reduced size, which results in a reduced weight and bulk.
They allow using even very small cups, guaranteeing, given the same diameter, the same performance as the larger series.
They are composed of:
- A brass stem for fastening the cup;
- A threaded sleeve equipped with nuts, for mounting the cup holder on the machine;
- A spring to cushion the impact of the cup and to keep, at the same time, a constant pressure with the load to be lifted;
- A quick coupling for connection with the suction hose.

The cup holders described in these pages share the same features as the previously described ones, but differ for their brass stem, which has 1/8” and 1/4” gas threaded female connection, for the exclusive installation of cups with male threaded support and for the vacuum connection, which can either be radial or axial.

For a further bulk and weight reduction, as well as to meet the requirements of discharge machines for plastic moulding presses manufacturers, these cup holders are made with an in-built spring and an anodised aluminium cup fixing stem.
Also these cup holders allow the installation of cups with male threaded support only.
The particular shape of the brass drive bush for fastening the cup holder to the machine prevents any rotation of the stem and, therefore, of the cup.
The vacuum connection is radial.
Product codes: 208015 208020
The shorter stroke and their particular shape allow for a further bulk and weight reduction of these cup holders.
The components are practically the same, only the vacuum fittings are different, since in these cup holders they are a radial standard hose-end fitting (two upon request).
They are particularly suited for small cups to be manually assembled with diameters ranging between 10 and 30 mm.

The reduced size and the particular shape of these cup holders allow them to be directly assembled to the vacuum manifold, saving time and eliminating pipes and fittings.
The hexagonal bush, for the cup holder assembly with the vacuum manifold, is equipped with a seal.
It’s function is to guide and seal the brass cup fixing stem.

They share the same mechanical features at the other mini cup holders.
Their distinctive feature is the plunger valve solidly connected to a conical spear valve, which activates suction, and therefore creates vacuum, only when the cup comes into contact with the load to be lifted.

Mini cup holders with plunger valve and built-in bush
The technical and mechanical features are the same as for the mini cup holders with plunger valve.
Their distinctive feature is their threaded hexagonal bush, which allows them to be directly assembled to the vacuum manifold, thus saving time and eliminating pipes and fittings.

Mini cup holders with plunger valve, with no springing
They have the same function as the mini cup holders with plunger valve but, for further bulk reduction, the cushioning spring, the threaded pipe with nuts for fixing to the machine and the quick coupler have been removed.
This type of cup holders is to be directly assembled to the vacuum manifold.
To allow a quick assembly, its end is provided with a threaded male shank.

The distinctive feature of these cup holders, that share all the technical features of the other mini cup holders, is the built-in shut-off valve.
Its function is to deactivate suction when the cup is not on the surface of the load to be lifted, in case of a defective grip or in presence of a considerable transpiration, thus preventing reduction of the vacuum level on the other cups of the plant that are regularly gripping a load.
All this results in a great advantage, since, with this system, the placement or the exclusion of the non-gripping cups is no longer binding.
Cups with diameters ranging from 10 mm to 50 mm can be assembled onto these cup holders, as long as they are equipped with a 1/8” gas threaded male support.

These cup holders share the same technical features of the other mini cup holders.
Their distinctive feature is a magnetic sensor which provides an electric signal to the machine every time the vacuum cup grips the load to be handled.
This is the reason why they are recommended to be used on piece counter handlers, boxing machines and in all those cases in which the presence of the gripped object is to be guaranteed.
These cup holders have been designed for gripping chocolate bars, snacks, and similar products and they are currently made in the version represented in this page.
However, they can be made with different vacuum cups upon request.
Product code: 209902
They are simply nickel-plated brass threaded bushes with screwing nuts for height adjustment and with threaded ends, one to assemble the vacuum cup with support and the other for the quick coupling connecting the suction hose.
