Mink claw vacuum technology is increasingly used for vacuum clamping in CNC machining centers, and is supplied as standard equipment by leading woodworking machine manufacturers. End users appreciate the excellent reliability, minimal maintenance and low operating costs in comparison to conventional vacuum generators. In addition to vacuum clamping, Mink vacuum pumps are also used in the woodworking industry for:
- Molding and veneer presses
- Vacuum drying
Mink vacuum pumps are well established as the industry standard for pneumatic conveying of bulk materials. In the plastics industry they are mainly used to transport plastic granules from silos via dryers to extruders or injection molding machines. Mink vacuum pumps find applications in many other sectors. The food industry uses them to transport free flowing foodstuffs and ingredients. The constant pumping speeds allow conveying rates to be controlled precisely, and the operating fluid free working principle excludes contamination of the bulk material.
Mink claw vacuum pumps have many uses in the plastics processing industry. In addition to pneumatic conveying, important application areas for Mink claw vacuum technology include plastics degassing in extruders, evacuating injection molds, and plastic foil thermoforming.
Mink claw vacuum pumps are predestined for processes requiring operating fluid-free vacuum in the food manufacturing and processing industries. They are the ideal vacuum generators for handling cardboard boxes, packaging in cartons, and the filling of bottles, tubes and other containers. Mink vacuum pumps also provide operating fluid-free vacuum for blister and thermoforming packaging processes. Mink vacuum technology delivers vacuum to robots performing palletizing and order picking operations – a reliable vacuum supply to every suction cup for clamping or handling of packaged items. Mink vacuum pumps supply vacuum to the foil bag handling process of continuous operations to fill foodstuffs into tubular bags.
Mink claw vacuum pumps provide vacuum to the treatment rooms of hospitals and other medical facilities. They are mostly installed centrally, and supply vacuum to medical appliances in the treatment rooms by pipe network. The high availability of Mink vacuum pumps contributes to improved safety in this sensitive application sector.
