PIAB Launches New Adjustable Vacuum Palletizing System At Pack Expo International 2004

Hingham, MA, -PIAB Vacuum Products, a leading manufacturer of industrial vacuum products and components, showcases its Adjustable Vacuum Palletizing (AVP) system in booth #N-4257 at Pack Expo International 2004, November 7-11, McCormick Place, Chicago, IL. PIAB's AVP is a flexible new palletizing solution for handling product in a variety of industries, including food, beverage, chemical, pharmaceutical, personal care and industrial.

PIAB's AVP features a unique modular design that is easily expandable, in order to accommodate for dissimilarities in product size-without the need for additional end effectors. Additionally, PIAB's AVP is simple to configure, resulting in a minimal set-up time and more available up-time on the machine.

"The growing trend toward mass customization in the packaging industry is changing the shapes and sizes of boxes and containers that come through production lines," said John Holmes, Packaging Segment Manager of PIAB Vacuum Products. "PIAB's AVP system provides the flexibility, quick changeover, energy efficiency and speed to palletize a variety of products in less time."

The AVP includes PIAB's Vacuum Gripper System (VGS(TM) 3010), in which a COAX(TM) vacuum cartridge is integrated with a DURAFLEX(TM) suction cup in a single unit. PIAB's patented COAX(TM) multi-stage ejector technology integrates the internal components of a multi-stage pump into a vacuum cartridge. The result is a smaller vacuum unit that consumes less air than conventional ejectors while providing up to three times more vacuum flow.

PIAB's AVP is manually adjustable on the x and y axis, so the positioning can be quickly changed, thus reducing downtime.
