Machined from high quality anodized aluminum alloy, PMAT is lightweight and easy to assemble on site without welding or special tools. It offers multiple mounting options, and can be used to design robot end-effector tools, ergonomic tools or fixture tools for any type of automation equipment. It offers both adjustability and rigidity, and will help producers to transform their assembly tools to meet their specific needs with minimal design time.

Attachments include vacuum ejector units based on Piab's energy-efficient COAX technology, providing both grip and release mechanisms.

Following requests from customers, PMAT is offered with an optional inline filter, and an external check-valve that can be used to meter air flow to the unit, protecting it from over pressurization while saving air. The vacuum check valve included in the VGS 3040 platform is an alternative to clamps, saving weight and trapping the vacuum in case of air interruption to the tooling. Furthermore, special suction cup attachments ensure safe handling of objects of varying geometries.
