Double capacity ejector fits popular format

Piab is introducing a complement to its range of Value Line vacuum ejectors. The new aluminum block mounted ejector is dimensioned to emulate a popular ejector format, making it easy to install into many existing systems.

Hingham, MA - Piab is introducing a complement to its range of Value Line vacuum ejectors. The new aluminum block mounted ejector is dimensioned to emulate a popular ejector format, making it easy to install into many existing systems. Offering improved performance and more energy-efficient operation, the ejector is a cost-effective and easy-to-install alternative for operators of basic automated vacuum systems.


Value Line is Piab's economy range for less demanding industrial applications that do not warrant the use of Piab's specialist vacuum solutions. So far, the range has included small, light-weight vacuum ejectors in two different designs - inline or T-design.

"The capacity of the new ejector is twice that of our inline ejectors. But the really clever advantage is that it is designed to slot nicely into existing systems, where it will offer better performance and more energy-efficient operation for the same price as competing ejectors. It is the ultimate win-win solution," comments Joseph Karbassi, Vice President of Piab's Automation Division.

Piab's vacuum ejection technology is based on ejector cartridges that offer improved vacuum performance compared with conventional single-stage ejectors of corresponding size. Hence, energy savings of up to 28 percent can be achieved if the company's Value Line ejectors are used to replace similar ejectors. Designed without flap valves, the ejectors are highly reliable, even in dirty and dusty environments.

The Value Line products offer the low-end of the market what Piab has been delivering to its high-end customers for over 60 years - expertise, innovation, and global, uniform delivery and service. Today, the company serves both ends of the market with its advanced and specialized ejector technology solutions, and its range of more basic, standard ejector products.

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.

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.
