P5010 Vacuum Pumps

Featuring patented COAX® cartridge technology and designed for automated product-handling applications, the P5010 pump gives the highest possible vacuum performance in relation to energy consumption, helping to reduce carbon footprint and improve conservation efforts. The modular P5010 design guarantees shorter changeover time and provides opportunities to customize and optimize vacuum performance, function and interface. Featuring two base pumps and strong aluminum interfaces, the P5010 is highly energy-efficient, lightweight, robust and reliable. “The light weight and compact design of the P5010 will help companies across industries reduce the weight of end-of arm-tooling and move the pumps closer to suction cups, resulting in increased machine speed and enhanced productivity. It provides a high degree of flexibility, and the pump can be easily fit into tight spaces,” said Peter Tell, Chief Technology Officer at PIAB. “The three-stage cartridges inside the pump create lower noise and more initial vacuum flow, which translate into a faster response and more reliable function in leaking and high-speed applications.” To further reduce energy consumption, the P5010 series can be equipped with an optional air-saving (ES) function to minimize compressed air usage in the handling of non-porous products, such as metal bumpers, glass and plastic sheet, common in the automotive and plastic industries. Further, a control unit (CU) with valves for on/off and blow-off activation caters to the needs of packaging and printing companies that handle porous products, such as paper and corrugated cardboard. The LED status indicators on the control unit enable monitoring of the pump from a distance for remote control, reduced downtime and easier troubleshooting. These two options can also be combined with a digital display (an additional Automated Vacuum Management AVM 2) to further reduce the risk of personnel injuries and unnecessary scrap. The P5010 pump’s design features a unique “push-in principle” to facilitate its insertion and removal, saving time and money during service. The assembly of the cartridge inside the pump does not require screws or hardware; users simply push it in to the manifold for convenient initial installation and removal for cleaning and maintenance. Installation of the P5010 is further simplified with several mounting options, including the industry standard DIN rail mount, and robust mounting rail for different pump modules.
