Piab is expanding its advanced technology within the field of automation to reach more customers. Since opening for business in the 1950s, the company has been leading the development of compressed-air vacuum pumps, vacuum accessories, vacuum conveyors and suction cups, while equipping the most demanding customers with the most advanced solutions.
Optimum performance and energy efficiency have always been hallmarks of Piab’s solutions. As energy costs rise and environmental awareness increases, manufacturers are seeking energy-efficient products that enhance capacity. To meet demand, Piab is now expanding its range with several even more cost-efficient products.
First out is piINLINE™, a new range of inline vacuum generators based on COAX® technology. piINLINE™ is ideally suited for the manufacturing industry for integration in machines or robot applications.
“We will accelerate product development and we are now aiming to launch one new product series every quarter for the coming years,” says Piab’s CEO, Per-Erik Lindquist.
Alongside efforts to extend the product range, Piab is restructuring and strengthening its sales organisation to broaden its market base.
“Our aim is to reach more customers with efficient solutions for automation using vacuum technology. It will be simpler to find us and we will use our knowledge to help customers gain further competitive advantages,” says Lindquist.
With these changes in place Piab is targeting double digit annual growth.
To mark this new phase in Piab’s evolution and send a strong signal about its intentions Piab is changing its logo and launching a new website at the start of April to coincide with the launch of the new piINLINE™ products.

Established in 1951, Piab designs innovative vacuum solutions that improve the energy-efficiency, productivity, and working environments of vacuum users around the world. As a reliable partner to many of the world’s largest manufacturers, Piab develops and manufactures a complete line of vacuum pumps, vacuum accessories, vacuum conveyors and suction cups for a variety of automated material handling and factory automation processes. Piab utilizes COAX®, a completely new dimension in vacuum technology, in many of its original products and solutions. COAX® cartridges are smaller, more energy efficient and more reliable than conventional ejectors, and can be integrated directly into machinery. This allows for the design of a flexible, modular vacuum system. Piab has a worldwide organization with subsidiaries and distributors in more than 50 countries, with headquarters in Sweden. Private-equity firm Altor has been the principal owner of Piab since 2006.
