Vacuum technology takes handling to new levels of sophistication

By combining its powerful P6010 COAX vacuum pump with an air-saving cruise control (PCC) feature and a durable BL-3P suction cup, PIAB offers the first complete solution for a variety of plastic bag handling applications in the packaging industry. Until now, bag handling with suction cups has been a very challenging task, resulting in regular errors and machine stoppages. PIAB's new plastic bag handling solution delivers higher process reliability by decreasing downtime that can result from dropped or damaged bags. Additionally, because of its unique design, users can handle a wider variety of bags to run with the same suction cup, thus decreasing changeover time. "Variation and change in product lines are some of the greatest challenges for today's packaging companies and packaging machine builders," says PIAB's Thomas Lindahl. "The new plastic bag handling solution meets the growing demand for a solution that is flexible enough to handle plastic bags of many shapes and sizes." At the heart of PIAB's plastic bag solution is the P6010 vacuum pump. Based upon the company's patented COAX multi-stage ejector technology, the P6010 provides up to 40 percent more flow than conventional vacuum pumps, while still reducing overall energy consumption. In order to optimise performance for plastic bag handling, the P6010 is equipped with PIAB's air-saving cruise control option, which automatically maintains a pre-set level of vacuum to ensure a consistent and reliable vacuum level is provided at the suction point. At its point of suction, the plastic bag solution features one of PIAB's new BL-3P suction cups. With better sealing capabilities and stronger, more stable bellows, the BL-3P suction cups allow applications to run at higher speeds.
