If your automation cell requires a palletizing or de-palletizing End-of-Arm Tool, Piab has components and systems that make your robots function precisely and efficiently. The modular and custom-machined component designs of our products allow our EOATs to operate on any make and style of robot.
Piab has introduced the first-generation heavy-duty adjustable bag grippers in 25 and 50kg [55 and 110 lb] payloads for palletizing plastic, woven cloth or paper bags.
The grippers come in three versions; fixed bag width (FBG), adjustable bag width (ABG), and servo adjustable bag width (SBG). The FBG fixed width models are suitable for when a line only handles a few bag sizes; the FBG can be re-adjusted within 4 minutes to fit the new bag size.
The ABG adjustable width model are for a low to medium frequency of bag changes, the ABG can be re-adjusted within 30 seconds to fit the new bag size. The SBG servo adjustable model, can be adjusted according to your need within seconds and is suitable for the medium to high frequency of bag changes.
For all models, independent decking plates square-up and align the bag for precise placement on the pallet and creates a very tight loading pattern. Top mounted bag clamps maintain bag position on the tool during robot travel to the pallet and allows for high speed and precision in the movement. Slip sheet and pallet hook options are available to increase the flexibility even further.
The company can also create customized tools for customers’ exact specifications if their need is not covered by the standard offering.
