Automotive

We help the Automotive Industry increase productivity and save energy with innovative and reliable products at no cost to human safety. Start to finish, we are in every stage of the production line from press shop, body shop, final assembly, and even component production.

Press shop

Slippery panels due to oil, narrow areas to grip, reliability and speed in the press are all factors to consider in designing your vacuum system of suction cups and vacuum ejectors. Using our products created especially for the Automotive industry, press shop sheet metals are moved across the press quickly and efficiently.

What Piab offers

  • Tailor-made cups: unprecedented design for handling oily sheets; our suction cups are made to keep their grip.
  • Efficiency: our suction cups and vacuum ejectors are made to match the speed of the press line
  • Reliability: safe and sturdy to move heavy pieces at no cost to human safety

Body assembly

In the Automotive industry, body assembly speed and safety are the first priorities. The metal sheets are heavy and oily, requiring the need of our energy efficient vacuum gripping solutions and specially designed friction cups to help lift, grip, and move products along the assembly line. Our solutions are flexible during production and are robust and reliable, offering maximum safety in case of power failure.

  • Reliability: robust design of component and End of Arm tool systems

Tailor welded blanks

Prior to stamping car panels in the press shop, large, blank metal sheets are welded together to optimize the safety and structure of the vehicle. We help to load and unload these heavy metal sheets using our innovative vacuum gripping technology. Our suction cups guarantee carrying a metal sheet without creating dents and to release the sheets safely, which leads to faster cycle times and higher productivity.
