Vacuum Generators

Vacuum for lifting, clamping, mounting and placement!

What is The E-Vac?

EXAIR's compressed air powered E-Vac single stage vacuum generators are the low cost way to create a vacuum for:

  • Pick and place
  • Clamping
  • Lifting
  • Chucking
  • Alignment
  • Surface mounting
  • Vacuum forming

E-Vac compressed air powered vacuum pumps provide instantaneous response and are most commonly used for pick and place operations. They are available in variety of sizes and flows for a wide range of applications.

Why The E-Vac?

The E-Vac Vacuum Generators have been engineered for high efficiency to minimize air consumption. These sinle stag, all aluminum units provide consistent, steady vacuum, unlike mechanical vacuum pumps. Dust and small particulates easily pass through the vacuum generator and they have No Moving Parts, making them Maintenance Free.

EXAIR's E-Vac Vacuum Generator is available in 2 style:

  • In-Line E-Vac, these single stage, cylindrical units are compact and easy to mount at the point of use.
  • Adjustable E-Vac, this series of vacuum generators permits easy adjustment by simply looseing th elocknut and turning the exhaust to increase or decrease the level of vacuum and vacuum flow.

Vacuum Cups for In-Line or Adjustable E-Vac Vacuum Generator:

EXAIR Vacuum Cups are vinyl. They are ideal for general purpose applications and provide excellent resistance to wear. The Durometer rating (used to indicate the flexibility and stiffness of the cup) is A50. Temperature range is 0ºC to 52ºC.

Choosing A Suitable Vacuum Cup:

Round Cups are best suited to smooth, flat surfaces. They will grip and release quickly. These cups hold their shape with extended use and grip well to verticaal surfaces. Round Cups with cleats are better at lifting heavy loads. Cups without cleats can be used for high lifting.


Oval Cups provide the most vacuum due to the larger surface area. They provide more vacuum power than Round Cups and are suited to lifting heavy loads. They are designed to handle flat rigid sheet materials like wood, glass, cardboard boxes and composites.


Bellows Cups are best suited to textured, uneven surfaces. The folds, called convolutions, provide a collapsible area that allows the cup to quickly compress when it touchesthe flat surface. The attach and release time is greater due to significant volume of the cup.
