How to calculate the air consumption by vacuum suction cups has always puzzled many mechanical design engineers. how to calculate the air consumption of vacuum system is related to the selection of subsequent vacuum generators, solenoid valves, pipelines and so on.
This is mainly divided into two blocks, one of which is breathable products, such as cartons, etc. this need to be tested before gas consumption can be judged. Another part is gas-tight products, such as steel plates, which can theoretically provide empirical values with the size of suction cups. The following are some experience values provided by dingda letter vacuum chuck, and you can refer to the model selection when absorbing air-tight products.
The suction rate of the vacuum generating device depends on the diameter of the suction cups selected, and the larger the diameter of the vacuum suction cups, the higher the suction rate required by the vacuum generating device.
