Needs of Vigo Importing 

Learn More about Vigo Importing


Vigo Importing is a 3rd generation Italian company which were created 75 years ago. They import olive oil from Greece. They also import Vinegar. Then, they bottle it and seel it in national retail chains such as Walmart, Publix, etc. Finally, they filter and press it. In addition, they sell peppers, olives, pesto sauce and all other kinds of product. 
This company is based on “amazing, strong family values and great workmanship”, according to Paul Robert (Warehouse Manager). They have an excelent quality control department that insures the premium quality of their products.   

Why the need of pneumatic bottle grippers? 

Vigo Importing has 2 departments which need pneumatic bottle grippers: olive oil and vinegar. 
 The olive oil line runs 3 different size bottles for the Italian de-palletizer and the Vinegar runs 2 different size bootle. Therefore, they use 5 to 6 grippers on each run to move the bottles into the unloading station. 

What did they use before? 

They had to change their grippers which were tooold, dry rotted and had multiples holes.” Therefore, the bottles were not properly gripped and broke on the floor.They were loosing money and time because of the clean up. That is why they needed an improvement  

Our solution: pneumatic bottle grippers

Our pneumatic bottle gripper 

Our pneumatic bottle grippers are manufactured in our workshops from NPVC coated fabric and assembled by hot vulcanization in an autoclave.

For all of our inflatable gripper ranges, a food-safe coating can be added on demand. Depending on your installation, the grippers will be adapted with reinforcing, a dual air supply, a threaded ring height, etc.
