      Ultra-lightweight decentralised vacuum generator piSTAMP

      piSTAMP offers generic retrofit in press-shops

      Ultra-lightweight decentralised vacuum generator fits generic suction cup holders in tools

      Taby, Sweden – Piab is introducing the new decentralised generic vacuum generator piSTAMP, offering easy retrofitting in automotive press shop tooling. The ultra-lightweight vacuum generator features a unique and integrated release mechanism, and comes in a compact, minimised package. Tailor-made for automotive press-shop automation, piSTAMP features new technology that will significantly benefit automotive manufacturers.

      A fully decentralised design with compressed air ports at the side and vacuum port underneath, piSTAMP will fit perfectly in generic suction cup holders found in standard press shop tooling systems. Its design and mounting interface provide a perfect match in generic systems used in the automotive industry. Ports for compressed air and vacuum are supported by quick-fit push-in connectors of varying diameter.

      Made in lightweight and extra durable PA66 material, piSTAMP utilises Piab’s COAX® technology, ensuring low air consumption (typically 25 percent lower than competing technology), excellent suction capacity, and fast evacuation. The generator is normally supplied with two MICRO COAX® cartridges, supporting large suction cups in high speed applications. A one cartridge option is available for additional air consumption saving when used with smaller cups or at slower cycle speeds.

      “The piSTAMP generator features a significantly lower weight per unit compared with our competitors’ products. The lower weight per unit corresponds to a total weight saving of over 500 grams in a typical press shop gripper with eight cups. This enables faster press line rates, and will result in less wear on robot arms,” says Josef Karbassi, Vice President of Piab’s Automation Division.

      The integrated release function, the very fast acting Exhaust Block Release (EBR), is based on a durable polyurethane membrane which is not sensitive to dust. This ensures highly reliable production systems with improved uptime.
