Piab® is a company rich in competence and with an organisation whose culture, structure and processes encourage an innovative climate. Since the company was established in 1951 a wide range of products have been developed in the fields of vacuum and measuring techniques. The first product developed was a drawing compass that simplified the work for designers and draughtsmen, and thereof the company name Pi (3.14) AB.
COAX® is the trademark for Piab's latest technology to generate vacuum, featuring excellent performance at both low and high feed pressures. Piab products based on COAX® technology are ideal for situations where compressed air lines deliver air at low or fluctuating pressures.
DURAFLEX® is the trademark for Piab suction cups manufactured in a specially developed material that features the elasticity of rubber and the wear resistance of polyurethane.
Piab has acquired Italian-based Kenos®, a leading company in the market of large area vacuum grippers. Kenos® designs and manufactures gripping systems used in various applications e.g. packaging, wood, food etc.
A cleverly equipped end-of-arm (EOAT) vacuum tool designed specifically for the cobot market. Featuring Piab's signature vacuum technology, enabling improved efficiency, productivity and working environments, piCOBOT® offers industry certified plug-and-play extensions to the latest collaborative robots, so called cobots.
piCOMPACT® is an ejector family with integrated controls, so called compact or "all-in-one" ejector unit. It is a stackable platform with the possibility to mount several units in the same manifold and have common pneumatic and electrical connections.
piFLOW® is a vacuum conveyor range owned by Piab that is easy to use without compromising on technical performance. It is designed to maximize material throughput and increase production. piFLOW® is equipped with COAX® cartridges - the most energy efficient way of producing vacuum.
The key to handling tablets gently is speed. In order to keep tablets intact throughout the entire conveying system it is vital to maintain a controlled low speed. The innovative piGENTLE® technology was designed to enable a low and constant speed of the tablet transfer, regardless of the amount of tablets in the pipeline. It is also independent of the size, shape, or weight of tablets or capsules.
piGRIP® is the trademark for a configurable suction cup that fits most machines and that can be optimized for handling almost all materials. piGRIP®'s different lip types ensure the right hardness/softness and sealing capability for your material. Combined with the firm bellows, piGRIP® is stable enough to handle faster accelerations and more high speed lifts as compared to traditional cups.
piINLINE® is the trademark for Piab's range of “inline” vacuum generators with COAX® technology inside. Small sized vacuum generators with the compressed air and the vacuum connections “inline” can be mounted directly on the hose close to suction cup (or point of suction).
Smarter, more energy-efficient, quieter, ergonomic by design, and utilizing the same principles of physics as all vacuum lifters, Piab’s piLIFT® SMART represents a paradigm shift as the market’s first Industry 4.0 ready vacuum lifter.
Our piSAVE™ products are a group of products that has as a function to save energy in various applications. The piSAVE™ products enhance an existing vacuum system; either at the suction cup or at the vacuum source.
piSOFTGRIP® is developed especially with food industry automation in mind. The vacuum-based soft gripper will grip sensitive and lightweight objects of odd geometries and/or an unusual surface. Bin-picking of small irregularly shaped objects, such as toys, is another potential application.
PVA™ is the trademark of Piab Vacuum Academy. PVA™ offers theoretical and practical training in industrial vacuum technology around the world. Courses are given to users of vacuum technology, distributors and to Piab staff.
”Good performance at a value price”. The Value Line® is optimized for basic applications, such as case erecting, plastic injection moulding, loading and unloading metal sheets.
VGS™ is the trademark for Piab's product design where high quality DURAFLEX® suction cups are integrated with a patented vacuum cartridge based on the latest COAX® ejector technology.
