Mid Series Segmented Vacuum Manifolds - VMBV

The VMBV Mid Series Segmented Vacuum Manifolds are individual vacuum pump segments with a common air supply that provides independent vacuum to multiple locations. Segments can be individually configured or they can all be the same. All segments offer integral NC solenoid control for vacuum creation. For added functionality, specify a valve for blow-off and a vacuum switch/sensor for part present/vacuum achieved feedback.

  • Precise control – control both the vacuum and the blow-off duration time
  • Fast response – no delay due to long plumbing lines; installs close to vacuum point
  • Instantaneous vacuum as needed – minimal air consumption
  • High productivity – cycle rates up to 2700/min
  • Reliable – operates trouble-free: no moving parts to wear or clog
  • No maintenance, no downtime
