Vacuum is used in many industrial applications to lifting and handling of parts as well as packaging applications such as removal of oxygen from packages in food applications.  There are several different methods of creating this vacuum.  For large volume requirements then this is typically done with electric regenerative blowers which can create both pressure and vacuum.    In cases where vacuum volumes are smaller, many applications utilize venturi vacuum generators which create vacuum using compressed air.  Venturi vacuum generators are a low cost solution for many packaging and manufacturing applications versus an electric vacuum pump.
One of the most common uses for vacuum in manufacturing is to operate vacuum cups.  These cups are used to pick up product such as semi-conductor chips, packaging materials, boxes, etc.  The amount of force that a vacuum cup can hold is determined by the diameter of the cup and the vacuum level that it is seeing.  Some applications, such as picking up porous materials like cardboard do not require high vacuum levels but they do require high flow because of the loss due to the porosity.
