Why Aerospace Clients Turn to Vi-Cas Mfg

Like most of our customers, our aerospace clients are often looking for better part availability, pricing, and functionality. Operating out of our facility in Cincinnati, Ohio, we have the capability to create our products per client specifications in the unique sizes and shapes their applications require, typically at a lower cost than our competitors.

To meet clients’ diverse needs, regardless of industry, we offer a wide selection of cups as part of our extensive catalog. Our products are available in varying shapes, heights, lip diameters, and mounting stem inner diameters, with and without threads. They also have varying lifting capacities to give clients versatile options to fit their applications. Our offerings include:

  • Round vacuum cups
  • Oval vacuum cups
  • Super grabber cups
  • Soap cups
  • Rubber cups
  • Plastic suction cups
  • Cup adapters

The aerospace sector specifically uses our vacuum cups to safely lift and move aircraft parts and other components. Such parts are typically quite expensive, and vacuum cups provide a non-destructive way to handle aerospace products without damaging them as compared to other clamping options. Components for this field can also be extremely heavy, and our vacuum cups have the lifting capacity to meet the industry’s weight demands.

Vi-Cas Mfg Solutions

When faced with a challenge, our team will first determine a way to make one of our cups work for a client’s specific application. To help one of our aerospace clients, our team built a mold necessary for creating custom cups. The company required a cup with edging of differing shapes. One edge had to be rounded, another beveled, and another angled. We can hand-pour cups as well as use an injection molding process to expedite production once the mold is ready. The custom cup received a new part number in our system, adding to our catalog of over 23,300 products and making the cup available for future orders.

As a result of the customized vacuum cups that we’ve created for clients in the aerospace sector, they were able to carry out operations more efficiently and cost-effectively, allowing for faster turn times as well.
