SMC Pneumatic – XT661 Non-contact Cyclone Vacuum Pads

With the cyclone pad non-contact conveyance is possible.  Air from the supply port is ejected from a nozzle on the cylindrical side to generate a whirlwind flow inside the cylinder which creates a vacuum. Supply air is discharged to the atmosphere from between the suction surface and the workpiece. As a result, an air layer is generated between the cyclone pad and the workpiece, resulting in the workpiece being lifted without contact.
