Robot Arm cdr

I have a 5500 pounds 4 drive cdr duplicator with robot arm to load the cd drives and move the finished cds to the end spindle.
It uses a arm which moves up/down and left right + picks up cd using 3 rubber tubes and air suction on end of arm.
I am thinking of trying to make a single cd duplicator with arm.
using parts of the drive from a old printer i should be able to do most of the arm up/down , even turn left right.
but does anyone have any ideas about the suction bit to pickup the cd. Can you get a suction motor ?..
the duplicator is only for a works cd catalogue and it would be a GOOD thing to be able to make one which works. software is not a problem as it could be run under windows or linux.. Nick

A company called CPI makes a gizmo that converts shop air into suction.
Look for part # CPI-vsa-312-BO
or something similar.
And there's suction cups as well.
Far as I can make out, they are just little blocks of AL that are set to generate venturi suction.
I have some around the shop. Lemme know if your interested.
I dunno. Half price or something.
