Thousands of suction cups are ready to improve your machine. The piGRIP® is a unique configurable suction cup concept with individually optimized parts for gripping, lifting and height compensation. Also a large selection of fittings makes it ready to fit new machines and easy to retrofit existing cups. The fittings available are both threaded and push on fittings. The piGRIP® has firm and stable 1-, 3- and 6- folded bellows allows for faster machine speeds and thin-wall design makes them faster to compress using less force and energy. Not to forget the strength of the material increases lifting capacity between 30-50% compared to similar conventional cups. A low micron filter disc inside the bellows is available to traps dust and particles for increasing the system reliability. Also a mesh filter is available in the fitting. Get an excellent grip on almost anything with the right lip for your application. Choose standard lips from 60° shore to extremely flexible, soft lips in 30° shore. Tailor-made Bag lips for handling bags and pouches are also available. Even foam lips for objects which are difficult to grip with traditional cups.
Auto tuning is an example of decentralised decisions that form the basis for Industry 4.0. This is an area where Piab has been busy introducing new equipment features promoting smart production.
The ability to use accurate preset settings also provides opportunity for real-time adjustments of single or multiple settings without a major reset of the entire system.
Simulations are designed to increase the efficiency of, for instance, vacuum pumps. Estimates show that a pump that is 5 to 20 percent more efficient would result in a productivity gain of up to 10 percent.
Estimates suggest it will be possible to achieve a drop of between 1 and 20 percent in the amount of unplanned and/or planned stops. This would translate into a significant productivity boost.
The adoption of IO-Link is the key, as it guarantees interoperability between different devices, regardless of the technology standard used in the overall system.
IO-Link provides a platform for integrated communication and sensors, enabling successful information transparency. Hence, making equipment available with IO-Link can be viewed as a commitment to both interoperability and information transparency.
For large vacuum systems, there are features which can help reduce the air consumption by up to 90 percent in every cycle.
