  • Chrysler brings Ethernet to pneumatics
    AGVs, clean off dirt and debris, align them with stamping dies, and finally feed the blanks into machines that stamp out body panels and structural parts. Pneumatic-control valves plug into Ethernet/IP-equipped Series 261 manifolds. The Bosch Rexroth units' Drive & Diagnostic Link provides
  • Pneumatics breathe life into battlefield casualties
    When soldiers are injured in combat, critical-care medical equipment must work reliably even under the worst conditions. The Magellan transport ventilator features a pneumatic-control system. It's simpler than electronic controls and works better in harsh environments. Careful design and meticulous
  • Taking the Guesswork Out of Pneumatic Control
    Here's a step-by-step approach to efficiently designing systems that work right the first time. Pneumatic sequence controllers provide step-by-step system operation. Sequence valves and other components mount to the manifold subplates. A selector valve gives the option of one-cycle operation
  • Bellows smooth valve moves
    Off-the-shelf electrodeposited-nickel bellows replace costly and stroke-limited custom bellows in gas-turbine fuel-control valves. In-line, microprocessor-controlled valves from Continental Controls Corp. work with PLCs to match fuel flow to turbine rpm and load. Valves use two oil-filled
  • Vacuum and Pressure Handbook: Vacuum Accessories and Systems
    . * Work Devices - the actual work effects are obtained by supplying air to actuators and other air-operated devices. At the end of the actuator's work cycle, the "used" air is returned to the atmosphere, either directly through a control valve or through devices designed to reduce exhaust noise or remove
  • Pulling Money Out of Thin Air
    Raising the efficiency of compressed-air systems could save thousands of dollars yearly. Save air with a regulator added to a valve bank. Placing FRL elements on scheduled maintenance intervals reduces pressure drop and lets air flow. Compressed air is considered the "fourth utility " in many
  • Pumping iron
    up and hold a 1-kg object in each of its hands. Electronics and pneumatic valves sit inside the waterproof head of the Airacuda devised by Festo AG as a demonstration. The 100-cm-long fish weighs about 4 kg. Its internal ribs are lasersintered polyamide and the skin is silicone. Lithiumpolymer
  • A fan of fuel savings
    efficient option. Such controls use a sensor to gauge engine coolant temperature and tell a fan to run only long enough to cool the engine. Otherwise the fan freewheels. Large, over-the-road rigs have used pneumatic on-off fan clutches for years. The units need compressed air to work and tend
