Piab is proud to introduce, the new piCOMPACT®, based on COAX® MICRO.
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. The focus during development has been on the most significant "key criteria" for these types of pumps, reliability and speed, as well as introducing some brand new attractive features/functions. That in combination with our state-of-the-art vacuum engine, COAX®, the product is outstanding. By working at low feed pressure and maximizing the utilization rate of the compressed air, the COAX® ejectors reduce energy consumption for manufacturers while increasing productivity and reliability.
The intelligent Energy-Saving (ES) function effectively turns off the compressed air usage when set vacuum level is achieved. An additional feature connected to the ES function, ACM, eliminates the issue of "motor-boating", where the vacuum generator cycles on and off repeatedly in case of leakage. ACM automatically senses if ES is needed or not. It can also be used for monitoring when it is time to replace worn out suction cups. With integrated direct operating bullet valves for on/off and blow-off as part of the complete piCOMPACT® package, reliability, uptime and speed of operation can be ensured.
The piCOMPACT® vacuum ejectors are available in a broad selection to fit with a variety of systems, including those that require very low feed pressure or extra deep vacuum levels. In addition, the compact ejectors can be easily integrated into existing production lines with no modifications required, and can be quickly configured to meet individual manufacturing needs.
Products in the piCOMPACT® range are ideal for pick-and-place operations where efficient handling of small, heavy parts is crucial, common for electronics, semiconductor, plastics, metal, small packaging, pick and place, robotic integration and the wood industry.
