Joulin, the inventor of the foam vacuum gripper, manufactures innovative handling systems from the simple foam vacuum gripper integrated on your palletizing robots to the complete turnkey stacker for the wood industry.  Whether your products are light or heavy, wrapped or inside a carton, packaged by units or layers, on a pallet or conveyor, dry or wet, Joulin has either a standard or custom gripper that can handle it. 

Product Information

Foam Grippers

Foam grippers operate at a lower pressure but higher flow than suction cups.  The lifting capacity is generated by the larger surface that is in contact with the products and the higher flow allows the foam grippers to be less sensitive to contamination, porosity, and irregular product shapes than traditional suction cups.  Joulin’s foam gripper is a multi-functional tool that doesn’t require adjustments enabling it to replace several End of Arm Tools on the same gripping hand.

  • Significant air flow rate allows for the compensation of any residual leakage

  • Foam adapts to irregularities in the shape and thickness of the products

  • No need to change settings when changing products to be lifted
