      • Vacuum pumps and ejectors

      • 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. 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.
          • Decentralized vacuum ejectors

          • piINLINE® and piSTAMP are small light-weight decentralized vacuum ejectors that use the patented COAX® technology inside or the new optional STX technology. They are ultra-lightweight decentralized vacuum generators, some of them with integrated release mechanisms in minimized packages.They can all be mounted directly on a hose close to the suction cup (or point of suction). The piINLINE®plus has, among other nice features, a patented feature, it is the first true inline (compressed air – vacuum) ejector with integrated automatic release function. Piab’s piINLINE® ejector program offers much better performance with at least 40-50% lower energy consumption and piSTAMP 25% lower energy consumption compared to competing inline single-stage ejectors in corresponding sizes. Decentralized vacuum ejectors are especially common in the automotive, electronic/semiconductor pick-and-place applications, dedicated packaging equipment, injection-molding automation and unloading/loading metal forming machines (bending, punching and laser-cutting).
          • Decentralized vacuum ejectors with safety check valve

                                          • A very common production process for plastic part production is through injection molding, producing high quality requirements that requires reliability and performance of the handling both during de-molding/part removal as well as during de-gating cutting operations. Having a secure grip with both vacuum and mechanical gripping is essential to avoid damaging the parts. To enable high productivity combination of parts removal and de-gating can be done with the same End of Arm Tool.
