NEW product from Piab for your considerarion - piPUMP

piPUMP™ MICRO is truly easy-to-buy and easy-to-mount and use.

Hingham, MA --- Piab, a leading supplier of industrial vacuum technology, offers its patented COAX® technology in a new small sized ejector called piPUMP™ MICRO. COAX® is the most energy efficient ejector technology based on a multi-stage concept for creating vacuum with compressed air.


piPUMP™ MICRO is truly easy-to-buy and easy-to-mount and use. A handy configurator tool on Piab's website, www.piab.com, allows the user to select the vacuum characteristics along with a few options for filtration and connections.

The piPUMP™ can be used for small centralized systems but perhaps even more suitable for semi-decentralized systems, i.e., a few units creating vacuum supporting a few small cups each. Thanks to very low weight and small dimension it can also be used as a fully decentralized ejector on a Delta robot for example.

The small footprint of the unit provides flexibility in mounting and use. Installation is a breeze with push-in connections and a common feed for compressed air, regardless of the number of units chosen. The central exhaust allows the exhaust to be drawn away in clean room environments.

Because COAX® Cartridges are up to twice as fast as other cartridges and provide three times more flow than a conventional ejector with the same air consumption; the piPUMP™ MICRO is able to provide a high performance even at low or fluctuating feed pressures (14-87 psi). Additionally, piPUMP™ MICRO vacuum units begin producing vacuum immediately when the pressure valve is turned on, making maximum use of the compressed air and consuming significantly less energy than traditional vacuum pumps.

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 more than 50 countries. Its headquarters are in Sweden.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
