Piab‘s piInline Plus offers decentralized vacuum generation. The ultra-lightweight vacuum ejectors feature an integrated automatic release mechanism and come in compact packages. Designed with ports for compressed air and vacuum inline and supported by quick-fit push-in connectors of varying diameters, the generators are mounted directly onto the hose, close to the point of suction. They feature a significantly lower weight per unit, corresponding to a total weight saving of more than 1.1 lbs. over a typical press shop gripper with eight cups. The product is made for automotive press shop automation, but also benefits other markets.
