New line of vacuum products from Piab

Vacuum products at a value price

Hingham, MA - Piab, the world leaders in vacuum ejector technology, introduces a new line of products called Value Line. This competitively priced line consists of 21 suction cups in three different shapes as well as two small lightweight vacuum ejectors.


This product line is ideal for more basic applications, where machine speeds and surfaces to be gripped are less challenging, such as with case/carton erectors. Other examples are equipment for loading/unloading or sorting sheets into metal forming machines (laser cutting, water jet, punching etc.) and parts removal from injection molds.

The suction cups are available in flat-concave, bellows and long bellows shapes with diameters from 20-75 mm [0.79-2.95"]. The durable TPE-U material provides good wear resistance. For mounting, all cups have a long neck and can be pushed on directly to a pipe or can be mounted with an optional brass threaded fitting. Discounted pricing is available for big pack orders of cups.

The small and lightweight vacuum ejectors can be installed directly on the hose very close to the point of vacuum. This feature provides the benefit of faster evacuation times to keep up with higher cycling machine speeds. The inline vacuum ejectors are also suitable for cleanroom environments and are ideal for applications in the range of 20-50% vacuum levels.

All products are available globally with "off-the-shelf" delivery.

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.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
