VPI-90H pumps vertically mount to robotic arms to create single or densely populated arrays of pump/cup combinations to accommodate and lift products of any size, shape, or weight. Internal threads on the vacuum port enable vacuum cups to connect directly to the pump while the external threads attach directly to the end of arm tool. VPI-90H’s feature an additional vacuum port for a vacuum switch/sensor to ensure accurate part detection or for an externally supplied blow-off.
- High performance – powerful vacuum up to 28”Hg [948mbar]
- Push-to-connect air supply fitting
- Allows multi-populated boards – dense formations
- Fast response – installs close to vacuum point
- Easy to install – compact & lightweight, simple mounting, saves plumbing
- Safe operation – no electricity needed at the pump

How to Order
The model number for the VPI-90H Series Inline Venturi Vacuum Pumps consists of the base model acronym (VPI-90H) plus three alphanumeric clusters. These clusters designate the vacuum flow, operating pressure, jam nut option, and switch or sensor option. Refer to the chart below for an example of model number VPI-90H-60-JN-VSMP-QD-6. This is a VPI-90H pump with a maximum vacuum flow of 90 and maximum vacuum level of 28"Hg [948mbar] (both standard), operating pressure of 60 PSI, jam nut and a VSMP vacuum switch with 6" pigtail quick disconnect. (The Jam Nut option is used to secure the pump to an end-of-arm tool).
