Oct. 5, 2022
The Piab piCOBOT L enables fast movement when lifting heavier items.

Developed for users who work with small industrial robots and cobots, the piCOBOT L has a high payload of 35 lb. (16 kg) and a low building height to enable maximum capacity usage. Consisting of a vacuum pump unit and an optional gripper unit, it is ideal for e-commerce, logistics, and warehouse applications. The vacuum pump unit is scalable and can be equipped with a varying number of the newest powerful COAX cartridge. Offering a significantly higher vacuum performance, it enables fast movement when lifting heavier items for high productivity in packaging and palletizing, part assembly or machine tending.

Its high vacuum flow further facilitates the deployment of large Kenos foam grippers that can lift a broad variety of objects, from single large and heavy ones to a multitude of small ones simultaneously. The piCOBOT L is also a good platform for customized end effectors. With the vacuum connection at the bottom of the pump, no extra cabling is required when attaching a different gripper unit.

The optional automatic tool changer is equipped with a lever to lock or unlock the adapter plate of the end-effector. The lever can be opened and closed automatically by the docking station to remove a gripping unit from the cobot and pick-up and connect a different one without human interference being necessary.

The integration of dust protection filters further maximizes machine uptimes. With its IP65 compliant robust pump body, long operation times are also realized in harsh environments.
