FIPA GmbH’s new Varioflex suction cups are dual-durometer cups, improved units that are used by automotive supplier Tanne Kunststofftechnik.

Tanne makes automotive interior parts, and the company was having problems with its suction cups that did not create the necessary suction force when removing the curved injection molded part from the mold undercut.

The solution: the very soft sealing lip of the Varioflex, linked to dimensionally stable bellows, which prevent lateral bending within wide limits, and on uneven surfaces.

FIOPA is based in Ismaning, Germany.
