Creating vacuum with compressed air, the Piab COAX in piGRIP decentralized vacuum unit is suitable for leaking and/or high-speed vacuum applications where smaller parts or objects are moved such as bag handling, bag opening and handling or palletizing of smaller boxes. The vacuum is generated independently for each suction cup at point-of-use. The unit can be mounted on standard extruded-profile systems; accessories, such as vacuum switches and blow-off check valves, can be attached to the auxiliary vacuum ports on the unit.
