piggySonic® Mark 3 - Part 2 - The large handpiece
This video introduces the large ultrasound handpiece. This has even more power than the conventional handpiece. The large ultrasonic handpiece offers a full 50 watts and an anti-twist protection for easy tool change. Ideal in combination with the turbo function of the piggySonic® Mark 3
Universal drive motor K18
Small, compact and powerful. The combination holder allows the motor to be placed on the workbench, hung up or very easily carried to another workstation.
Drive machine SMV511
Thick shaft with thick handpiece, a proper tool and off you go. 15,000 min-1 maximum at 1.1 kW are on. If this is not enough, the engine can also have power up to 4.0 kW. The shafts are available in different lengths and diameters.
piggy®Power 2drives - grinding, polishing, deburring
The system has everything you expect: a stylish, robust control unit with intelligent functions. Brushless motors with a fast 50,000 min-1 and a fabulous 230 watts of power. Motors with carbon brushes and grease 100 watts and robust angle heads.
Surface roughness meter - Litesurf
If you need to know exactly what the quality of the initial surface or even the finished surface is, then you need a roughness tester. We have now found a model that can not only measure, but also transmit the results to your computer via Bluetooth. The included software shows you the results as numerical values and also graphically. You can save this, print it and/or forward it by mail.
Heavy shapes are not so easy to handle. It can be particularly difficult when the mold comes out of the machine for maintenance and has to be opened. Then, if you have our piggy® mold manipulator, opening a mold is a snap. The opened mold can be swiveled and you immediately have a convenient position for your maintenance work. (e.g. repair welding with piggyWelder®, reworking with piggySonic®. . . .) The model shown is intended for molds up to 1.5 t.
Ultrasonic cutting with the piggy®Cutter
With ultrasound, you can cut a wide variety of materials quickly and precisely, for example sprues from injection molded parts. For automated processes, the combination with a cobot is a very interesting solution.
Carbide coating with Tucadur 2020
Carbide coating of critical areas in your mold, on tools or on wear parts, significantly improves tool life. Carbide coating of smooth surfaces creates a structure that ensures much higher adhesion.
The preselected layer thickness cannot be exceeded, since material absorption no longer takes place when saturation is reached. The selected layer thickness is so precise that it does not normally require any mechanical finishing. However, it can be lapped and polished if necessary.
Rotating and pivoting device
The device is mounted on a steel plate 220 x 220 x 8 mm, which has 5 felt feet on the bottom to avoid scratches. The three-jaw chuck is mounted on a 150 x 100 x 20 mm plate for easy rotation and can be locked in any position with a beautifully crafted brass locking brake. The whole thing can be swiveled continuously from 0 to 90 degrees. Of course, this function is also locked by a simple but effective linkage.
The piggy®Rocker - turn-swivel device
This thing is versatile. When welding with the piggyWelder® or with a laser or when polishing round parts and when engraving. With the three-jaw chuck, you clamp the workpiece and swivel it as desired between 30 and 180 degrees. The three-jaw chuck is rotatable and lockable.
The piggyRocker 1 - Rotating-Pivoting Device
In practice, you are repeatedly faced with the problem that the workpiece is not in the optimum machining position. With the handy crank you swivel very precisely into the desired position, which is reliably held by the self-locking gear.
The screw pliers
These pliers are a tool you have always been waiting for. With these pliers you can easily remove damaged or broken screws in no time. Due to the 22° beveled pliers head, the pliers lie flat and you can powerfully hold and turn the screw with the forged pliers jaws. From M2 to M8
piggy®Silicone - Checking slots quickly and easily
piggy®Silicone is a high-precision silicone impression material that was originally developed for criminal investigation forensics. piggy®Silicone reproduces the surface so finely that you can still find the smallest defects under the microscope.
With this material, you have a great inspection tool to determine if even the most difficult areas of the mold have been machined correctly before sampling.
piggy®Cobot and laser marker are a good team
In this video we mark flasks 25th anniversary of piggy banks. And each flask receives an individual mark.
Pick and place with the piggy®Cobot
Using several examples, we will show you how you can pick up and place your products quickly and easily with the piggy®Cobot. A cobot can also be delicate without damaging food. Smooth surfaces can also be lifted with suction cups. You can see all this in this video.
Ultrasonic cutting with the piggy®Cobot
In this video we show you 2 ways how you can cut with the piggy®Cobot fast and easy with ultrasound. Our cobot easily cuts a foil and then it cuts out a shoe sole using a CAD file.
Cobot - piggy®Cobot deburred and laser marked
See the piggy®Cobot in action: A robot that deburrs and laser marks. We will show you what possibilities a cobot can offer in practical work via automation.
Lapping and polishing videos
Polishing with the piggy®Cobot
In this video we polish the workpiece completely with the piggy®Cobot. First, the Cobot works with easyLap grit 600. The process runs very smoothly thanks to Cobot. After that, we work with a Kemet® Composite material and diamond paste. Finally, the cobot polishes the workpiece with a felt. The finish is done with a horsehair brush.
The small 90° angle handpiece
With this small, practical angle head, Made in Germany, you can get into difficult contours and still work powerfully.
The 90° angle head is simply screwed onto the BM50 brushless micromotor and you are ready to go. The angle head is equipped with a Ø 3 mm collet as standard. A Ø 2.35 mm collet is also available as an option. The tool change is easy thanks to the handy counter wrench.
The raw material for the production of the Super Stones is no longer produced. That is why a new generation of ceramic fibers has been developed for use in the new SuperStones. The new fibers have a better grip and therefore produce visibly more stock removal. With grit 80 you remove erosion skin very quickly and effectively. See it for yourself in this video.
The problem solver for lapping and polishing problem steels. speedLap is a relatively hard carrier material made from a mixture of metals and plastic. With speedLap you avoid washouts or scaling and cracks in the surface. You get perfect results when you use speedLap with the Kemet® diamond paste SpeedPolish.
The Cristone®Crystal Fiber Stones, are the sensational further development of the well-known ceramic fiber files.
The special thing about these files is: 1. they are extremely stable. The flexural strength is up to 200% better. 2. material removal is up to 50% higher: simply halve your machining times. 3. the surfaces become much finer.
The filing machines work on a simple but very effective principle. 2 springs tensioned in opposite directions are tensioned and released by compressed air. This results in a very smooth, low-vibration movement.
These things look a bit clunky, but they’re really not. The running smoothness is simply sensational, the air consumption is extremely low and the service life is outstanding.

The 3D piggyLaser marker
Standard LaserMarkers are limited to flat surfaces. The 2D lens systems achieve good quality when the workpiece surface is flat and symmetrical to the lens. The height differences here may only be 1-2 mm. The solution for these tasks is the piggy®LaserMarker 3D.
On your workpiece, you will see a red-framed rectangle that corresponds to the desired size of your design. Place the workpiece. Then press the button or even better the foot switch and whoosh, the mark is done. If you want the mark to be a little deeper, set the repeat rate in the software, and a few more washes, and that’s done, too.
Mobile piggy®LaserMarker - marking like the pros
Whenever greater flexibility is required, it makes sense to use an open LaserMarker. You have far fewer restrictions here in terms of workpiece size. In addition, you can swivel the LaserMarker head as desired, making markings on vertical surfaces, for example, feasible.
The fascinating thing about laser marking is its simplicity. You design in the software what and how should be displayed and determine the size. On your workpiece, you will see a red-framed rectangle that corresponds to the desired size of your design. Place the workpiece so that the result becomes optimal. Then press the button and whoosh, the marker is ready.
