We handle it all !


joulin vacuum gripper principle
  • Foam grippers operate at a lower pressure, but higher flow than suction cups. The lifting capacity is generated by the larger surface in contact with the products.


  • Suction cups generally require higher vacuum pressure with lower flow.


  • The higher flow allows foam grippers to be less sensitive to contamination, porosity and irregular product geometry, than conventional suction cups.

The Advantages

  • A significant air flow rate allows for the compensation of any residual leakage
  • The foam adapts to irregularities in the thickness and shape of the products
  • There is no need to change the settings when changing the configuration of the products to be lifted (number, shape, pallet, spacer, ...).


The foam gripper a multi-functional tool without adjustments, replacing several single-function EOATs on the same gripping hand.
