Piab 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 suitable 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.
