Requests for a vacuum unit with fast workpiece absorption and improved transfer application performance have now been answered with the launch of our new compact vacuum ejector and pump unit – Series ZB. Developed initially for wafer and chip transfer applications, Series ZB is around 25% smaller than our alternative vacuum units and it is also considerably lighter – at only 46g for a single unit without sensor. Thanks to these reductions in size and weight, the ZB unit can now be mounted directly onto a machine´s moving component and as close as possible to the transfer workpiece – dramatically improving the vacuum absorption performance. Series ZB has also been constructed with separate vacuum and pressure paths which effectively reduce the chance of dust collecting in the filter element being discharged into the surrounding atmosphere via the units exhaust. Additional ZB features and options include a supply valve with latching specifications, a digital vacuum switch, with copy function, where up to 10 switches can be set simultaneously thereby saving installation time and potentially annoying individual input setting mistakes and the use of simple one-touch-fittings to connect a suction filter and silencer.
