      piGRIP® suction cup with vacuum pump

      Instant point of suction with COAX® in piGRIP®

      Date 6/3/2013

      Quick response time with a decentralized vacuum pump inside a fitting.

      Piab, a leading supplier of industrial vacuum technology, offers its patented COAX® technology in a new decentralized vacuum unit called COAX® in piGRIP®. COAX® is the most energy efficient ejector technology based on a multi-stage concept for creating vacuum with compressed air.

      The decentralized COAX® in piGRIP® is ideal for very demanding (leaking and/or high speed) vacuum applications where smaller parts/objects shall be moved. Examples are bag handling, bag opening and handling or palletizing of smaller boxes. Applications are to be found in mainly food, consumer, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries.

      Vacuum systems for handling/holding materials with cups can be decentralized or centralized. A decentralized vacuum system is a system where the vacuum is generated independently for each suction cup at point-of-use. There are some strong advantages with a decentralized system, for example: quick response, fast objects release, high system safety (no leakage) and high energy efficiency due to no losses of vacuum flow.

      A wide range of suction cups can be configured at the piGRIP® program to meet specific application needs. The configured units can be mounted on standard extruded profile systems due to the profile mount kits. A low total build-height (flush mounted cups) and the possibility to mount in several directions will save space on a lifting device.

      Accessories, such as vacuum switches and blow-off check valves, can be attached to the auxiliary vacuum ports on the unit to improve the system productivity and reliability.
