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®, a completely new 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. Piab is a worldwide organization with subsidiaries and distributors in more than 50 countries. Its headquarters are in Sweden.

Suction cups/grippers

Using suction cups is a lifting technique of many possibilities. You can, for example, handle board materials or concrete slabs, open bags, pick electronic components, label and hold objects. But different applications need different requirements. PIAB offers one of the market’s widest ranges of suction cups so that each application will have its own solution.

Vacuum pumps/generators

COAX® technology PIAB's patent technology platform is an offshoot of the multistage technology.
COAX® ensures excellent performance at both low and high feed pressures – ideal for situations where compressed air lines deliver air at low or fluctuating pressures.  Pumps based on the COAX® technology can operate within the range of 25 to 87 psi.

Vacuum cartridges/integration

COAX® is an advanced solution for creating vacuum with compressed air. Based on PIAB’s multistage technology, COAX® cartridges are smaller, more efficient and more reliable than conventional ejectors, which allows for the design of a flexible, modular and efficient vacuum system. A vacuum system based on COAX® technology can provide you with three times more vacuum flow than conventional systems, allowing you to increase speed with high reliability, while reducing energy consumption.

Combined pump & gripper

PIAB VGS™ – A product design where high quality DURAFLEX® suction cups are integrated with vacuum cartridges based on the patented COAX® technology. The “vacuum gripper” makes selection, sizing and installation of a vacuum system easier. With a VGS™ you will enjoy the benefits of a more cost-efficient and reliable vacuum system.

Optimizing controls

Our line of monitoring and control units for vacuum systems is unmatched when it comes to reliability. We focus on the overall solution, down to the last detail. We are fully aware that top quality components are as essential as designing pumps and suction cups that are in a class apart.
