With Piab’s recent acquisition of both FEBA and SAS Automation, the company is expanding its already internationally recognised range, with the view to becoming the global leader in gripping and moving solutions.
In continuing it’s growth initiative the Piab product range now also includes:
Using suction cups is a lifting technique of many possibilities. You can, for example, handle board materials or concrete slabs, open bags, pick electronic components, label and hold objects. But different applications need different requirements. Piab offers one of the market’s widest ranges of suction cups so that each application will have its own solution.
Piab vacuum pumps/vacuum generators are predominately based on the patented COAX® technology. COAX® is an advanced solution for creating a vacuum with compressed air. Based on Piab’s multistage technology, COAX® cartridges are smaller, more efficient and more reliable than conventional vacuum ejectors, which allow for the design of a flexible, modular and efficient vacuum system. A vacuum system based on COAX® technology can provide you with three times more vacuum flow than conventional systems, allowing you to increase speed with high reliability while reducing energy consumption.
Kenos® vacuum gripping systems
Kenos® is a leading brand for large-area vacuum grippers. It is designed and optimised to be used in various applications, e.g. packaging, wood, food etc. The product group represents a flexible solution for the handling manipulation of several products with different shapes, dimensions and compactness. Most of the gripping systems can be equipped with integrated vacuum generation or suitable for separated vacuum generation (Pump or Side channel blower). The integrated vacuum generator is a modular multi-stage COAX® ejector of easy maintenance and the market’s most energy-efficient ejector technology. The number of ejectors can also very simply be increased even after the installation if necessary. The mat of the KVG gripping system is made of a technical foam (FDA mat approved available), with different pitch holes and thickness. As an alternative KVG120C can be equipped with suction cups, size 35-60 mm from the DURAFLEX® or Value Line® series.
Advanced gripping solutions for robot applications
Advanced gripping solutions are complete gripper systems for specific application areas. The ready-to-go grippers are designed to be installed directly on the robot arm or tool changer. Several mounting interface options, in accordance with ISO-9409-1, are available, making it easy to install on most robot brands. The grippers are made of lightweight materials but still durable. They have predefined components and functions which will suit the target application perfectly. Piab’s advanced gripping solutions will simplify and even eliminate engineering time for grippers, make installation easier and secure that state-of-the-art components are used and dimensioned correctly to achieve maximum performance and productivity for the customer. Some grippers are specially designed and approved by Universal Robots.
A cost-effective soft gripping tool that is developed especially with food industry automation in mind.
The unique piSOFTGRIP® has three gripping fingers and a vacuum cavity, all made in one piece, resulting in a simple and robust product. As it is vacuum-driven, the gripping force is easily adjusted and controlled by the applied vacuum level.
Ergonomic handling solutions
Ergonomic handling solutions are available to meet the demands of all kinds of applications and can lift almost any type of product; parcels, baggage, sacks/bags, boards, glass, kegs/barrels, bottles, food, stone, windows etc. Depending on its purpose it is available in a various number of combinations. With standard, as well as custom made suction feet with its high-quality suction cups, you can lift almost anything. As is proven to reduce strain injuries, being user-friendly as well as keeping top quality promises, it will increase the productivity of the application.
Vacuum conveyors for powder & bulk
A vacuum is used with great advantage in conveying dry powder products through dedicated pipe systems. Piab’s vacuum conveying systems are built of high-quality material. When producing food, pharmaceuticals and chemical products, there are demands on the highest possible degree of safety as to hygiene and operation. Piab’s piFLOW® conveyors have been developed as an answer to the severe requirements of operational safety and hygiene in the food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries. Piab conveyors are ATEX Dust certified. piFLOW®p and piFLOW®t are ATEX Gas certified. All conveyors are available with either an ejector driven vacuum pump or with a mechanical pump.
