Piab is proud to introduce piCOBOT®, a cleverly equipped end-of-arm (EOAT) vacuum tool designed specifically for the cobot market. Featuring Piab's signature vacuum technology, enabling improved efficiency, productivity and working environments, piCOBOT® offers industry certified plug-and-play extensions to the latest collaborative robots, so called cobots.
Certified by Universal Robots, piCOBOT® is a vacuum ejector unit with integrated controls, large visual status indicators and a user-friendly display. It mounts directly on the UR robot arm (ISO-9409-1-50-M6). As an option to mount a suction cup directly on the piCOBOT®thread interface, a high-end adjustable gripper with two suction cups can be seamlessly attached to the piCOBOT® unit. It is equipped with a plug-in software (URCaps) for the handheld programmable device (teach pendant) which will make it very easy to install, set up and get started.
Designed to be fitted to the end of any type of cobot arm, piCOBOT® is combined with adjustable and flexible grippers that can be fitted with a variety of different suction cups. The 97-142 mm [3.81-5.71”] wide gripper arms can be tilted ±15 degrees, providing excellent reach for positioning cups. Fitted on the grippers are our suction cups, acting as the cobot’s hands.
The gripper is adjustable, together with piSAVE® sense – an object sensing valve – the flexibility for kitting process is very big. piCOBOT® can pick, one or two items in the same pick, with different shapes or structures.
Thanks to the multistage COAX® cartridges the high flow capacity of piCOBOT® is outstanding. It can grip anything from very porous to sealed material, from lightweight up to 7kg [15.5Ibs]. A vacuum system based on COAX® technology can provide you with three times more vacuum flow than conventional systems, allowing you to increase speed with high reliability while reducing energy consumption.
