Piab es una compañía con una gran capacidad y con una organización cuya cultura, estructura y procesos, fomentan un clima de permanente innovación. Desde que se creó la compañía en 1951, una amplia gama de productos se han desarrollado en los campos del vacío y técnicas de medición. El primer producto desarrollado fue un compás de dibujo, que simplificó el trabajo de diseñadores y delineantes, de allí que la compañía se llamó Pi (3.14) AB.
Más tarde fueron diseñados una serie de instrumentos para medición de fuerzas. Al final de los años 60, el primer producto de vacío fue inventado, pinzas de vacío neumático. Hoy los productos de vacío de Piab son vendidos en todo el mundo.

piINLINE® are small light-weight inline ejectors which use the patented COAX® technology inside. piINLINE® also has a pending patent since it is the only inline vacuum generators based on multistage ejector technology. They can be mounted directly on the hose close to suction cup (or point of suction). Piab's piINLINE® ejector programme will offer much better performance with at least 40-50% lower energy consumption compared to the competing inline single-stage ejectors in corresponding sizes. Inline vacuum generators are especially common in electronic/semiconductor pick-and-place applications, dedicated packaging equipment, injection-molding automation and unloading/loading metal forming machines (bending, punching and laser-cutting).

piCLASSIC is Piab’s upgraded vacuum pump series based on COAX® technology. Suitable for a wide range of applications with large capacities despite its small size and low weight, the piCLASSIC has been designed with greater efficiencies than previous pumps in this size class. With an initial high amount of flow, there is no need for expensive vacuum tanks and vacuum valves that are usually needed on machines performing at high rates of speed using rotary vane pumps. With its compressed air source for energy, the piCLASSIC is easy to turn off/on thus ideal for operations that only need vacuum intermittently, a great energy saver.
piFLOW® is a vacuum conveyor widely used in the general industry and sometimes in the chemical industry. It has a high throughput performance as well as a small foot print. This conveyor is often used as an alternative to mechanical conveyors when there is a requirement for dust free conveying or low maintenance. Another advantage is that the pump is based on COAX® technology which is the most energy efficient way to produce vacuum.

piGRAB - the gentle grabber for bin picking solutions. piGRAB is a vacuum based gripping too and is the most cost efficient alternative to mechanical grippers. Since it is vacuum based the gripping/clamping force is softer than when using a pneumatic gripper. The big advantage is that you can grab sensitive items, e.g. glasses or eggs without risking breakage by the force of the grip.
The lightweight piCHIP unit is a small vacuum pump which is optimized for integration. It is flexible enough to surface mount quickly on a variety of materials. With its almost silent operation, the piCHIP is ideal for clean room operations. Medical and electronic industries are best suited to use this product in their vacuum applications.
piSECURE is a decentralized vacuum pump for sealed applications with high safety requirements in case of power or system failure. The safety function is based on a separate extra sealed vacuum non-return valve (check valve). piSECURE can advantageously also be used in robot handling applications of high value sealed objects, i.e. high cost for dropped part in case of power failure. Examples are shaped glass and metal sheets in body assembly and general assembly of cars.
The piPREMIUM vacuum pump line for vacuum conveyors is expanded. With the addition of the new larger sizes, it would allow for greater speeds to handle difficult to move powders and granules over a greater distance.The piPREMIUM pump together with the piFLOW®p vacuum conveyor is ideal for meeting the high demand from the Food and Pharma industries.
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. 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.
Value Line® – Good performance at a value price. Esta línea de productos es ideal para las aplicaciones más básicas, donde las velocidades de la máquina y las superficies para sujetar son menos difíciles, como en las formadoras de cajas. Otros ejemplos, son el equipo para carga/descarga o selección de chapas de metal en máquinas plegadoras (corte por láser, chorro de agua, perforación, etc.) y al retirar piezas desde moldes de inyección.
piFLOW®t – This is a vacuum conveyor when a premium technology is needed especially to handle tablets or fragile products in the food, nutraceutical and pharmaceutical industries. It is designed with a Stainless Steel body (ASTM 316L) and meet the very high hygienic demands of FDA. Piab conveyors are ATEX Dust compliant.
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.
