Suction Cups

A modular suction cup that fits most machines and that can be optimized for handling almost all materials. piGRIP’s different lip types, optimized for various products to lift, ensure the right hardness/softness and sealing capability for your material.

Combined with the firm bellows, piGRIP is stable enough to handle faster accelerations and more high speed lifts as compared to traditional cups.

Vacuum Gripper System – VGS

Piab’s decentralized Vacuum Gripper system, VGS, is a product solution integrating high quality suction cups with COAX cartridges.

  • VGS makes selection, sizing and installation of a vacuum system much easier. Design and dimension mistakes for the vacuum system will be avoided.
  • You will enjoy the benefits of a more efficient and reliable vacuum system.
  • Increased machine speeds can be achieved thanks to faster response times with the vacuum source right at the cup and better initial vacuum flow which will grip the object faster.
  • The decentralized approach provides safety with one vacuum source per suction point and it also eliminates flow losses in long vacuum hoses, making maximum use of energy.

Decentralized Vacuum System

A decentralized system is designed to have the vacuum pump/cartridge placed directly at the point of suction.

  • Lowest energy usage
  • Fastest cycle time
  • Safest product handling
  • Independently working suction cups
  • Most consistent/even performance
Suction Cups

Centralized Vacuum System

A centralized vacuum system is designed to have one vacuum source for multiple suction points.

  • Easy installation
  • Easy vacuum sensing and controls
  • Light end-of-arm tooling
  • Simple filtration options
  • Some loss in system performance due to distance
