Vacuum PumpsPiab vacuum pump

Piab vacuum pumps/vacuum generators are predominately based on the patented COAX® technology. COAX® is an advanced solution for creating 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.

Value Line®Piab value line

The entire Value Line® program consists of suction cups and vacuum ejectors. Value Line® suction cups are developed for standard/basic applications. The suction cups have a long thin lip and provide good sealing on slightly corrugated surfaces (such as corrugated cardboard). The Value Line® vacuum ejectors are available in three different designs: the traditional inline that can be installed directly on the hose close to the point of suction, the T-design that allows exhaust air to be piped away, and the aluminum block version.

Piab Modular Automation Tooling PMATPMAT

PMAT (Piab Modular Automation Tooling) offers adjustability and also rigidity with the same products. PMAT can be used to design robot end-effector tools, ergonomic tools or fixture tools for use on all types of automation equipment. The tooling consists of connecting parts for welded frames or extruded profiles and swivel arm assemblies with a choice of various “function” attachments. Some function attachments include an ejector that is based on the latest COAX® technology. The ejector unit provides vacuum and also a release function. The ejector can also be equipped with a vacuum check valve and an energy-saving unit called Vacustat.

piCOMPACT®23 Revolutionizes Air Drive Vacuum Pumps

piCOMPACT23Vacuum ejector piCOMPACT®23 is now available with a range of unique and patented added features Improved and intelligent blow-off functions, a split unit design, and a self-adhesion control feature are a few of the new added extras on offer in Piab’s premium piCOMPACT®23 vacuum generator platform. This impressive range of proprietary and patented added features, which also includes IO-Link communication, has the potential to provide optimal vacuum generation for every application.

piCOMPACT®23 is the latest in a line of Piab vacuum generators that provides outstanding performance and quality. The new design increases uptime in your vacuum system to achieve more reliability. By working at a lower feed pressure and maximizing the utilization rate of the compressed air, the COAX® ejectors reduce energy consumption while increasing productivity and reliability.

piCOMPACT®23 is ideal for medium or larger vacuum systems, such as palletizing of boxes and loading, sorting, transfer and unloading of different sheet materials.  By offering an increased vacuum flow, piCOMPACT®23 ejectors strengthen product grip to increase pickup speed, minimize product damage and reduce waste. piCOMPACT®23 also allows faster release of products from the suction cups onto the production line for efficiency gains.

Using Piab's unique COAX® cartridges, the world's smallest multistage vacuum ejector, the piCOMPACT®23 provides three times more vacuum flow than similar products. This reduces energy consumption by 30-50 percent compared with traditional ejectors, resulting in substantial sustainability benefits as well as energy and cost savings.

piCOMPACT®SMART

piCOMPACT SMARTReady for Industry 4.0, when you are! piCOMPACT®23 SMART is an IO-Link-ready vacuum generator platform available from Piab. Offering operation with either standard 24V IO or IO-Link, the new SMART compact all-in-one ejector is ready to meet the future. Previously offered as an optional added feature, IO-Link is now included as a standard option. A generic input/output (IO) communication technology, IO-Link provides point-to-point links between sensors and actuators. It can be used with any type of fieldbus, enabling users to easily link together different systems within a plant.

With casings and electrical enclosures fulfilling the IP65 standard, providing complete protection against dust, and good ability to withstand water, the new standard version of the popular piCOMPACT®23 vacuum generator is also more robust than the previous generation. This allows it to be installed closer to the usage point with no need for extra protective measures, making installation easier.

Ready for the smart factories of the future, the user-friendly ejector platform is also equipped with a new gyro-based display function that simplifies readings, reducing the amount of errors and increasing productivity. The use of optocouplers to achieve separation between valve and sensor lines in the vacuum generator system also adds another level of security, further limiting the risk of accidental equipment damage or personal injury.

Energy saving features offered as standard include Piab's proprietary Automatic Condition Monitoring (ACM) which in deactivated mode can be used for the detection of leaks, enabling quicker trouble shooting and maintenance.

The new SMART generation of piCOMPACT®23 is ready to utilise and take full advantage of the benefits offered by an information-rich and connected Industry 4.0 future.
