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®, the next 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.
Introduction The competitiveness among companies in the highly automated metal fabrication industry is tough in these days of global economical slowdown. Efficient production along with a high output of the line(s) is crucial for the plants. Plants with low productivity will quickly
Semiconductor manufacturing is probably the most exact manufacturing activity in the world. Companies are using expensive, precise machinery to produce semiconductor wafers whose features will soon be measured down to the thickness of atoms. The latest generation of processing equipment uses round silicon wafers 300 mm in diameter and achieves line
Summary A recent comparative vacuum technology study performed by Dr. Kingman Yee, as part of a DaimlerChrysler Summer Intern Professors Program, found that air consumption could be reduced by 98% when equipping a robot’s end-of-arm tooling with COAX® technology and a Vacustat™ check valve. The study
Flexible End of Arm Tooling Cuts Costs and Prevents Injuries The Challenge: Developing a Cost Effective and Ergonomic Tote Assembly Solution Due to a number of economic and social factors, including the advancements in automation technology, the rise in overseas manufacturing and the increased awareness of employee safety, the robotic industry
The use of robots for placing products in containers, transferring those containers between different stations in the packaging lines and palletizing them is becoming increasingly prevalent in all industries. Robots, with their ability to use a variety of end-of-arm tools [EOAT], provide the high-speed ‘‘pick and place’‘ palletizing ability needed to
