Date 7/13/2016

Bi-stable on/off valve offered as added extra for vacuum ejector piCOMPACT®23 provides extra security.

Taby, Sweden – An optional bi-stable (latching) vacuum on/off valve is among the added features offered by Piab for the company's premium all-in-one vacuum ejector platform piCOMPACT®23. The bi-stable (latching) on/off valve has been specifically developed for use in systems prone to emergency stops or those handling expensive, delicate, or heavy objects.

Designed to stop at and maintain the final processing stage in case of an emergency stop, the bi-stable valve will provide added security, making handling systems safer for both objects and staff. The ability to hold on to objects following an emergency stop will help prevent accidental damage to products and personal injury to processing personnel.

”We are proud to introduce this latching valve as an optional extra safety mechanism in our piCOMPACT®23 vacuum generator platform,” says Joseph Karbassi, Vice President of Piab's Automation Division.

”Along with other recently added optional features for piCOMPACT®23, it enables us to offer a truly optimal set of functions that will give our customers the opportunity to achieve the best possible performance combined with safe operation in any application,” he adds.

Additionally, the specially designed bi-stable on/off valve can be used in conjunction with the energy-saving options also offered for integration in piCOMPACT®23, such as the ES function and the patented Amplified Blow-off (ABO) feature that ensures more efficient and energy-saving blow-off, enabling faster production cycles, and the patented Intelligent Blow-off (IBO) feature, which automatically switches off the blow-off when the vacuum is no longer present.
