Vacuum Relief Design


Carbide Vacuum Relief Tips are designed to avoid profiles or protrusions on your dies and devices, with a high degree of customization available. The design of our Carbide Vacuum Relief Tips features a pocketed opening on the surface of the tip, which creates a reservoir of air to enhance the vacuum suction force during application.

Oricus manufactures a wide range of vacuum relief tips sizes for different applications and die sizes. Customized tip sizes with thin-walled designs featuring central, offset and spherical relief configurations can be designed and manufactured for your specific application.


  • Reduced contact surface area between the tip and the die while not sacrificing suction force
  • Can be made in Round, Square, Rectangular and Custom outer profiles with different pocket designs
  • Options available between Box Reliefs or Spherical Reliefs depending on the level of rigidity required for the tip structure
  • Harder than Rubber, Engineering Plastics and Steel Vacuum Relief Tips
  • Highest wear resistance amongst Rubber, Engineering Plastics and Alloy Steel Vacuum Relief Tips
  • Highest temperature resistance amongst Rubber, Engineering Plastics and  Alloy Steel Vacuum Relief Tips


  • Compared to the Flat Tip design, Vacuum Relief Tip design allows for stronger vacuum force to be applied to the die or device
  • Reduced level of die or device rotation due to insufficient suction
  • Reduced sticky die effect for swift Pick and Place motion
  • Tailor made pocket sizes for the avoidance of sensitive bumps, profiles or protrusions of your die and device
  • Longest tool life compared to Rubber, Engineering Plastics and Alloy Steel Vacuum Relief Tips
