The Oval Bellows Friction (OBF) design is suitable for oblong objects with domed and flat surfaces, such as those encountered with body parts in the automotive industry. OBF suction cups are specially designed for oily surfaces, such as sheets in metal forming processes. The suction cups can withstand high shear forces, typically 2–4 times more than corresponding conventional suction cups, and can handle objects with height differences. OBF suction cups are manufactured in DURAFLEX®, a specially developed material that features the elasticity of rubber and wear resistance of polyurethane. The material does not leave any marks on the objects handled. The new OBF40x80P suction cup comes with the same (five) fittings as the existing OBF35x90P.
