IF NOT, DESIGN A CENTRALIZED VACUUM SYSTEM

A centralised vacuum system is designed to have one vacuum source for multiple suction points

• Easy installation

• Easy vacuum sensing and controls

• Light end-of-arm tooling

• Simple filtration options

• Some loss in system performance due to distance

AN ECO-FRIENDLY VACUUM SYSTEM

By never using more energy than absolutely necessary, companies can reduce their carbon footprint as well as their costs. Piab can work with you

to achieve the lowest possible energy consumption.

ENVIRONMENTAL INDEX

Your pump will require less compressed air when placed close to the point of suction, thus reducing

CO

2

emissions and energy consumption.

The graph demonstrates the relationship between environmental impact and the distance of the

pump from the point of suction.

BEST TO USE A DECENTRALIZED VACUUM SYSTEM

A decentralised system with the vacuum pump / cartridge placed directly at the point of suction

eliminates the risk of loss in the vacuum piping and the need for expensive, oversized components.

A centralised vacuum system is designed to have one vacuum source for multiple suction points.

• Lowest energy usage

• Fastest cycle time

• Safest product handling

• Most flexible design for zoning

• Easiest troubleshooting

• Independently working suction cups

• Most consistent / even performance

SUCTION CUPS / GRIPPERS

INTRODUCTION

SUCTION CUP CATEGORY

FEATURES

APPLICATIONS

piGRIP

®

Modular

suction cups

• Unique modular suction cup concept with individually optimised lips and bellows for gripping,

lifting and height compensation on almost any kind of object.

• A large selection of fittings makes piGRIP

®

cups ready to fit new machines and easy to

retrofit.

• The material is 100% recyclable.

• Available in FDA approved qualities; silicone (PWIS) free and mark free versions.

• The combination of firm bellows and soft lips will allow for high machine speeds.

• There is also a fitting that has an ejector integrated, the COAX

®

in piGRIP

®

for creating a

decentralised pump.

Smooth, textured, uneven

and also very rough surfaces

on objects such as plastic

pieces, wood, sheet metal

(dry), glass, corrugated

cardboard, carton, food,

tiles, etc.

DURAFLEX

®

Single

durometer

• Manufactured in a material that features the elasticity of rubber and wear resistance of

polyurethane.

• The material is silicone free and mark free.

• Has an exceptional elastic memory.

• The single durometer DURAFLEX

®

cups are extra wear resistant and long lasting.

Smooth surfaces on objects

such as plastic pieces,

furniture pats, sheet metal

(dry), glass, solar panels, etc.

DURAFLEX

®

Dual

durometer

• Manufactured in a material that features the elasticity of rubber and wear resistance of

polyurethane.

• The material is silicone free and mark free.

• Has an exceptional elastic memory.

• The dual durometer DURAFLEX

®

cups have firm bellows or body and a soft pliable lip.

• The suction cup is then stable, durable and flexible with excellent sealing properties.

Textured, uneven and

also very rough surfaces

on objects such as plastic

pieces, wood, sheet metal

(dry), glass, corrugated

cardboard, carton, tiles, etc.
