MODULA, Multi-stage & Function Vacuum Generators GVMM Series
Multi-stage, multi-function and modular vacuum generators, series GVMM – General description
Modular multi-function vacuum generators are true independent vacuum units that offer an entire vacuum control system.
They feature a reduced thickness and weight compared to their suction flow rate and they have been designed to be assembled with screws to one or more intermediate modules MI. The original internal connection system for the compressed air supply allows communication with no need for external manifolds.
This modular system allows increasing the number of independent vacuum units according to the requirements. In fact, you can order a multi-function vacuum generator and the intermediate modules with the desired capacities, already assembled, or you can assemble one or more intermediate modules to the GVMM generator that has already been installed on the machine, without having to make particular modifications. GVMM vacuum generators are composed of an anodised aluminium mono-block with lid, inside of which the silenced multiple ejectors are installed and the vacuum chamber and the compressed air supply connection are contained.
The following are instead installed on the outside:
- A micro solenoid valve for supplying compressed air to the generator.
- A micro solenoid valve for blowing the exhaust compressed air.
- An adjustable flow regulator for dosing the exhaust air.
- A digital vacuum switch provided with display and commutation LEDs, for managing the compressed air supply and for signalling the safety cycle start-up.
- An anodised aluminium or transparent Plexiglass manifold provided with vacuum connections with built-in suction filter, easy to inspect, and a check valve for maintaining the vacuum in case of electricity or compressed air failure.
By activating the compressed air power micro solenoid valve, the generator creates vacuum for use. As soon as the pre-set maximum value is reached, the digital vacuum switch acts on the electric coil of the micro solenoid valve and stops the air supply, reactivating it when the vacuum falls below the minimum level.
Besides maintaining the level of vacuum within set safety values (hysteresis), this modulation allows for considerable compressed air savings.
A second signal from the vacuum switch (also adjustable and independent with respect to the first) can be used to start the cycle when the level of vacuum reached is suitable for use. Once the work cycle is completed, the micro solenoid valve that supplies air to the generator is deactivated while, at the same time, the ejection solenoid valve is activated for quick restoration of the atmospheric pressure upon use.
GVMM multi-function vacuum generators can be installed in any position and are suited for interconnecting vacuum gripping systems for handling sheet steel, glass, marble, ceramic, plastic, cardboard, wood, etc., and, in particular, for the industrial robotics sector which requires equipment with excellent performance and several independent vacuum units for controlling several applications but with reduced size and weight.
