Important new options for the world’s fastest integrated controls ejector

Products in the piCOMPACT range are smaller and lighter than conventional ejectors, reducing the total weight of vacuum handling systems.

Hingham, MA - Piab introduces two important new product options for the piCOMPACT range, the first manifold-mounted and functional ejector system on the market based on the energy-efficient COAX technology.


The first is an industry-standard M8 6-pin connection option. This robust threaded connection allows more pull force on the connection. This is suitable for moving and vibrating applications, such as robotic applications. The second option is an air valve with "clean room" housing. Virtually no air or particles will leak from the unit if exhaust air is piped away. The unit can manage higher cleanroom requirements (higher ISO class) and can be used in rooms that have those requirements such as ISO 14644 Standards.

Products in the piCOMPACT range are smaller and lighter than conventional ejectors, reducing the total weight of vacuum handling systems. This innovative design allows vacuum systems to move more quickly to increase production capacity.

The piCOMPACT vacuum ejectors are available in a broad selection to fit with a variety of systems, including those that require very low feed pressure or extra deep vacuum levels. In addition, the compact ejectors can be easily integrated into existing production lines with no modifications required, and can be quickly configured to meet individual manufacturing needs.

About Piab
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 almost 70 countries. Its headquarters are in Sweden.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
