Piab is proud to introduce COAX® in piGRIP®, a decentralized vacuum pump integrated in the piGRIP® program.

The combined solution of a COAX® in piGRIP® fitting and a piGRIP® cup can easily be configured directly in the piGRIP® configurator. This product will give the quickest response time and the best energy efficiency compared to any other solution.

COAX® in piGRIP® is optimal for very demanding (non-sealed material and/or high speed) vacuum applications where smaller parts/objects shall be moved. Examples are bag handling, bag opening and handling or palletizing of smaller boxes. This product is also available as a stand-alone product where it can be fitted on other suction cups apart from piGRIP®.

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.
