Piab offers a series of piGRIP bag lips, known as BGI. These lips include an internal retainer piece, as well as three additional diameter sizes. The bag lips are ideal for handling different types of bag materials, especially hard-to-handle thin bag material, such as plastic film. Six diameter sizes, 25, 34, 41, 48, 63, and 80 mm, provide a range of sizes for choosing the exact cup for the handling application. The lip design in combination with the rigid and strong piGRIP bellows/body allows for bag handling speeds and accelerations never used before in automation equipment for bags/pouches. Beside regular plastic bags for dry food (e.g. chips), the piGRIP bag lips were designed to have an excellent grip on stand-up-pouches filled with liquid or dry/wet food/substances.
