Vacuum Gripper System – VGS™

Piab’s decentralized Vacuum Gripper system (VGS™) is a product solution integrating high quality DURAFLEX® suction cups with COAX® cartridges. The VGS™ makes selection, sizing and installation of a vacuum system much easier. Design and dimensioning mistakes for the vacuum system will be avoided.

With a decentralized solution like VGS™, 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 gives safety with one vacuum source per suction point and it also eliminates flow losses in long vacuum hoses, making maximum use of energy.

Fully decentralized and the most energy efficient and reliable vacuum handling system, with integrated options for energy-saving, positive blow-off or automatic quick-release.

Why choose VGS™?

  • VGS™ makes selection, sizing and installation of a vacuum system much easier. Design and dimension errors for the vacuum system are minimised.
  • 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.
  • VGS™3040 with integrated energy saving functions like Vacustat and AQR02 (Atmospheric Quik Release) is a pioneering product and the world’s most energy efficient concept for vacuum handling of sealed parts, such as glass and metal sheets.

Piab VGS™ Models

Small


(10 – 80 mm)

VGS™2010 is suitable for pick-and-place of small objects, for example in the electronic industry.

Medium


(35 – 110 mm)

VGS™3010 is suitable for a wide range of applications, for example handling of corrugated boxes, sheet metal, glass, wood and plastic and is often used in the automotive industry. The VGS™3040 platform can be configured for integrated unique functions, eg. Atmospheric Quick Release, blow-off check valve and Energy Saving (or a combination). VGS™3040 has a user friendly “profile” mounting interface.

Large


(50 – 150 mm)

VGS™5010 is suitable for high speed applications where a high initial flow is needed, for example in bag opening. Other suitable applications are palletizing of large and heavy cardboard boxes and sheet/plate handling.
