End Of Arm Tooling (EOAT)

The EOAT and gripper systems are used to design robotic end-effector tools, ergonomic tools or fixture tools for use on all types of automation equipment. The tooling consists of connecting parts for welded frames or extruded profiles and swivel arm assemblies, grippers with a choice of various “function” attachments. Some function attachments include a vacuum ejector that is based on the latest COAX® technology. Piab provides both round and square EOAT as there are advantages with both options. To maximise the flexibility, our components are modular and adjustable and can be combined into a specific tool from the components. With our great expertise we can also provide tailor made solutions for various applications in the automotive, plastics and food industries.

Ergonomic handling solutions

Ergonomic handling solutions are available to meet the demands of all kinds of applications and can lift almost any type of product; parcels, baggage, sacks/bags, boards, glass, kegs/barrels, bottles, food, stone, windows etc. Depending on its purpose it is available in various number of combinations. With standard, as well as custom made suction feet with its high-quality suction cups, you can lift almost everything. As is proven to reduce strain injuries, being user friendly as well as keeping top quality promises, it will increase productivity of the application.

Escapements

PHD offers pneumatic escapements ideal for the release of parts from vibratory feeders, hoppers, or part magazines as part feeders. Escapements are available in single rod and double rod configurations and are designed to withstand high side loads, which are typical in such applications. Models are available with switches for easy interface with various electronic controls.

Kenos® Vacuum gripping systems

Kenos® is a leading brand for large area vacuum grippers. It is designed and optimized to be used in various applications e.g. packaging, wood, food etc. The product group represents a flexible solution for the handling manipulation of several products with different shapes, dimensions and compactness. Most of the gripping systems can be equipped with integrated vacuum generation or suitable for separated vacuum generation (Pump or Side channel blower). The integrated vacuum generator is a modular multi-stage COAX® ejector of easy maintenance and the market’s most energy efficient ejector technology. The number of ejectors can also very simply be increased even after the installation if necessary. The foam is made of a technical foam (FDA mat approved available), with different pitch holes and thickness or pads depending of the product to be gripped and on the requirement of the application.

Large 3-Way Valves

The MAC Large 3-Way Valves is a 3-way balanced spool valve pilot operated by a small direct operated 4-way solenoid valve – a one-off in valve manufacturing.  The 4-way pilot means a low minimum operating pressure – no pistons – and minimal resistance to shifting.  The balanced design in the pilot means shifting forces are consistently high and response times are repeatable regardless of inlet pressure fluctuations.

Large 4-Way Valves

The Large 4-Way Valves is a versatile 4-way solenoid piloted spool valve.  This series features our balanced poppet in the pilot and an air/spring return for consistent shifting regardless of inlet pressure fluctuations.  Our balanced spool means the valve can be piped as a 4-way, 3-way, 2-way, normally closed or normally open or can be used for vacuum, diverter or selector applications.  Our one piece bonded seal spool means longer life and easy maintenance.

Linear Slides

PHD powered linear slides include thruster and gantry styles, and operate using air or electric power sources.
