      Optimize your efficiency

      Using innovative vacuum technology into machinery helps manufacturers minimize downtime and reduce energy consumption.

      Reducing carbon footprint with the right vacuum system

      We will look at industries where vacuum material handling systems are used and focus only on systems designed for sealed materials, such as sheet metal, plastic and glass.

      COAX® technology
      Reliable production even in the dustiest of settings

      Getting a vacuum based materials handling system to operate reliably in very dusty industrial environments can be challenging.

      Red capsules
      Segregation in vacuum conveying

      If it is done properly segregation can be avoided. We are here sharing our experience around it.

      A mini vacuum conveyor from Piab
      Short of space? Use a mini vacuum conveyor!

      With the smallest vacuum conveyor on the market you can minimise your manufacturing footprint and still reap all the benefits of a vacuum conveying system.

      Palletising of cardboard boxes
      Smart regulation boosts productivity

      Optimised systems are the most productive. But how do you optimise an automated handling system that has to deal with a variety of items and conditions?

      Suction cup under pressure
      Suction cups enable the vacuum to grip

      Vacuum systems designed to lift, hold and move objects need to be fitted with suction cups.

      Pharmaceutical tablets
      The ABC of tablet conveying

      Piab has put together an ABC guide with some of the most important issues to bear in mind.

      Press-to-press transfer in automotive plant
