piINLINE™ is Piab’s new range of inline vacuum ejectors based on COAX® technology. The products are well-suited for handling components in the electronics industry. A major benefit is that the ejectors work at low feed pressure.
Production stops are a common problem in the electronics industry because it is difficult to maintain feed pressure at 0.4-0.6 MPa, which is the required level for conventional inline ejectors.
“With piINLINE™ we have succeeded in developing effective ejectors that deliver maximum vacuum performance at feed pressures as low as 0.18 MPa,” says Jan Schieche, Global Product Manager Pump & Accessories.
Thanks to the low feed pressure, piINLINE™ increases reliability and productivity on production lines in the electronics industry.
Another important benefit is that piINLINE™ is a more eco-friendly solution than single-stage ejectors.
The smallest model, the Micro, uses on average 50 % less energy than comparable products, which means significantly less energy consumption and lower carbon emissions. Sound levels are also lower, which creates a better working environment.
piINLINE™ comes in three sizes: Midi, Mini and Micro. Each size is available with a choice of three special options to enable optimized performance and capacity for the specific application:
The product range is designed so that end-users in factories can easily replace single-stage inline ejectors. Prices have been deliberately set to provide a competitive and attractive alternative.
Under normal use, the medium model in the piINLINE™ range, the Mini, will pay for itself after just three months, thanks to its low energy costs, while the payback time for other models should be less than six months.
“piINLINE™ can be likened to the new energy-efficient light bulbs: a vacuum ejector that has greater power while using less energy,” says Jan Schieche, Global Product Manager Pump & Accessories.
The product range will be launched on 1 April and will be available at all of Piab’s central warehouses in North America, Asia and Europe.
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 is a worldwide organization with subsidiaries and distributors in more than 50 countries. Its headquarters are in Sweden.
