Piab Adds New Friction Cups

Small, oval and extremely nimble friction cups have been added to Piab’s line-up.


Piab is introducing a number of new cups in a variety of shapes, sizes and configurations, all with the exceptional durability and elastic memory that are the hallmarks of Piab’s friction cups.
Available in four different sizes, the new BXF family features a total of 36 cups. The cups have additional bellows and offer an improved level compensation performance. As a result, they're easy to program for de-stacking applications where the rack positions of sheets or other objects might vary slightly.

Bellows with extra flexibility make the BXF friction cups very forgiving when they pick objects, allowing for the variations often seen in auto-racking applications. The flexible and nimble cups eliminate the need for expensive and cumbersome spring brackets/plungers to be fitted on ejectors or robot end-of-arm tools, resulting in simpler and less expensive installations.

Small oval shaped friction cups are the star performers of two other new families introduced by Piab. Featuring either one bellow or no bellow, the OBF/OCF families’ smallest members measure only 15 x 35 mm and are available in a high and a low configuration. Also available with the dimensions 15 x 65 mm, the cups are specifically designed to enable a safe and secure grip on very small surfaces. That allows the cups to lift and handle objects by their edges where the cups’ unusual shapes maximize the suction area.

The OCF family’s flat, bellowless cups offer less inner movement for applications that require optimal stability. The OBF/OCF families each include 36 new friction cups.



Piab is also increasing the number of available fittings and threads for its line of friction cups. The introduction of new dimensions, including a 3/4 inch thread, enables Piab to meet 99% of all customer requirements.

Happy 60th Anniversary to PHD!

FPE Automation would like to congratulate PHD Inc. on 60 years of making top quality products that are making a difference in countless sectors in American manufacturing. You might not realize it, but at some stage in the game, PHD touches a lot of what you buy. Happy Anniversary, PHD!

PHD hosted a 60th Diamond Anniversary & Distributor Sales Meeting in June. It included baseball, a realistic game show and a lot of other fun & celebratory events. Among them, some special recognition for FPE Automation that we'd like to share with you.


 
Above, just a handful of people were invited to participate in Star Breakout Sessions. Among them are our very own Art Gesell and Steve Kocmond. We're very proud of the fact that we had not just one but two stars!




Here's Art (left) sharing his testimonial with the crowd. Way to go! 

On a completely different note, FPE's Dale Miller is in the PHD 10K Club for June twice! Art Gesell, Andy Button and Joe Judge also won the honor for the month.Congratulations, gentlemen!

FPE Automation Wins an Unprecedented Four Mac Distributor of the Month Awards in June 2017

We're celebrating a real milestone here at FPE Automation today! 

Every time FPE Automation wins even one MAC DOM award, it means we architected a game-changing solution for one of our valued clients that was significantly more efficient, more cost-effective, and often both! 

Four awards and a sweep for the month: two singular, never-before-in-history achievements. 

We would like to thank our team for their efforts (names included in the video), and of course  MAC Valves, whose superior products allow us to approach our clients with a concept that really does make a difference.

We're exceptionally proud. We put together this playful mini movie to explain it in a little more detail!
