The AQR 02 has been developed mainly as an accessory to the PIAB Vacuum Gripper System (VGS™) but can also be used in any application where quick release of the product is required. This new valve combines the use of atmospheric pressure and a boost of accumulated compressed air to release the object.
This is especially important when using big internal-volume suction cups in fast cycles or when handling very light objects.
The air consumption is kept at a minimum by accumulating a small volume of compressed air right next to the suction cup. The AQR 02 requires no additional controls and is simple to install.
