Specialising in suction cups, we are experienced, skilled and dedicated designers of innovative vacuum solutions to improve the energy efficiency, productivity, and working environments of vacuum users worldwide. We specialise in suction cups suitable for many applications. Capabilities of suction cups are versatile; with them you can handle board materials or concrete slabs, open bags, pick electronic components, labels and also hold objects. We provide possibly the market’s widest range of suction cups so that each application will have its own unique solution.

We also provide Combined pump and gripper solutions. PIAB VGS™ is a product design where high-quality DURAFLEX® suction cups are integrated with vacuum cartridges based on the patented COAX® technology. The 'vacuum gripper' makes selection, sizing and installation of a vacuum system easier. With a VGS™ you will enjoy the benefits of a more cost-efficient and reliable vacuum system.

Vacuum Pumps/Coax Technology

For vacuum pumps we have now introduced COAX® technology. This is an offshoot of the multi-stage technology first patented by PIAB in 1973 and is now our main patented pump platform. These vacuum pumps were developed to provide extra vacuum flow in combination with deep maximum vacuum levels while keeping energy consumption at a minimum.

COAX® vacuum cartridges are smaller, more efficient and more reliable than conventional ejectors, allowing for the design of a flexible, modular and efficient vacuum system. A vacuum system based on COAX® technology will provide you with three times more vacuum flow than conventional systems, allowing you to increase speed with high reliability, while reducing energy consumption.

piSAVE and piLEAN - Product Group (Optimize, Sense, Restrict, ON/OFF and Release)

Our piSAVE products are a group of products whose main function is to save energy  in various applications. The piSAVE products enhance an existing vacuum system; either at the suction cup or at the vacuum source. piSAVE optimize is an optimized energy saving product for air-driven vacuum pumps/ejectors in virtually any type of vacuum application is available on the market.

piSAVE sense is a vacuum check valve for cups, used for “object sensing” on flexible vacuum handling devices with a centralized pump solution. piSAVE restrict is a flow-restrictor inside a piGRIP® fitting or as a stand-alone fitting and is a good option for applications with a centralized vacuum pump and several cups. piSAVE onoff is the best energy-saving solution for handling sealed objects with suction cups, such as glass and metal. piSAVE release offers a faster and more powerful release by combining the use of atmospheric pressure and a boost of accumulated compressed air to release the object.

piLEAN™ is a concept to show how you can build a solution with our products for a specific application to reduce waste – a ‘lean production’

Optimising Controls

We also provide solutions for optimising controls. For optimising controls, our line of monitoring and control units for vacuum systems is unmatched for reliability.

Our focus is on the overall solution, down to the last detail. We are fully aware top-quality components are as essential as designing pumps and suction cups. You will find everything you need to monitor and control vacuum systems here.

Products include:

  • Vacuum switches
  • Valves
  • Regulators

Vacuum Conveyors - Simplifying Material Handling

piFLOW - Premium/Food Grade/Industrial

The premium conveyor that is taking powder transport to the next dimension. Specify a piFLOW®p when a premium technology is needed, e.g. in the food and pharmaceutical industry. The piFLOW®p capacity range is large – from 1.5 litres batch volume up to 56 litres.

The most cost efficient powder conveying concept for food industry -This is a basic conveyor widely used in the general industry and the food industry. It has a high throughput performance as well as a small foot print. This conveyor is often used as an alternative to mechanical conveyors when there is a requirement for dust free conveying or low maintenance. The piFLOW®f capacity range is from 6-14 litres.

A full opening making it possible to maximize material throughput and increase production - This is a conveyor widely used in the general industry and sometimes in the chemical industry. It has a high throughput performance as well as a small foot print. This conveyor is often used as an alternative to mechanical conveyors when there is a requirement for dust free conveying or low maintenance. The piFLOW®i capacity range is from 6-14 litres.
