Piab’s new ECX36 egg suction cup, with its stable design and multistage actuation, provides easy control over the product release. It impressively reduces the risk of damaging eggs in the process, thus enabling high speed applications in egg handling.
Thanks to the low vacuum required in the operation, energy is saved — a growing necessity to lower cost and ensure environmentally friendly production. As a result of this firm but gentle (and yet safe) gripping process, egg cracking can be reduced during the handling process. This lowers the necessity of cleaning and hence machine downtimes.
Should the cleaning of the egg suction cup be needed after all, this can be done easily in situ. Furthermore, the ECX36 is long-term resistant to detergents and ultrasonic cleaning as well as FDA 21 CFR 177.2600, EU 1935/2004 and EU 2023/2006 regulations compliant.
Main customer benefits include:
• Enables high speed applications based on its stable design with multistage actuation.
• Allows energy efficient processes as only a low vacuum level is needed.
• Easy in situ cleaning paired with and long-term resistant to detergents and ultrasonic cleaning.
