  • Keep it moving with fluid power
    The right fluid-power system eases large material-handling applications. The bottom dog can be seen pushing the log through the machine. The top dog holding the other end of the log is out of sight inside the green housing. The motion-control system in a log cutter uses multiple-motion axes to keep
  • Fluid Power Reference Guide - Hydraulics and Fluid Handling
    This MACHINE DESIGN Reference Guide looks at recent innovations in fluid power, control, and handling. Two new families of steering-control units from , Eden Prairie, Minn. ( ), are said to provide responsive steering and crisp centering, plus flexibility and quick installation for OEMs
  • Troubleshooting Fluid Power Systems: A Blend of Art and Science
    One of the worst sounds in an industrial setting is a fluid power system with serious problems. Even worse is the eerie silence when everything shuts down due to a failure. When a fluid power system fails, the first impulse is to grab a tool kit and start tearing the system apart to find
  • Pressure-transducer options for fluid-power measurements
    Applying pressure to a coupled port in a Wheatstone bridge increases resistance in two resistors and decreases it in the other two. An excitation source drives the bridge, and output is measured as a differential voltage. In fluid-power systems, users often need to know the operating pressure
  • Construction equipment and fluid power take center stage
    as the Proceedings of the 50th National Conference on Fluid Power (NCFP) and will be available in print or CD-ROM format. Complementing the conferences is a new Best Practices Learning Center. Presented by experienced fluid-power experts from Milwaukee School of Engineering's Fluid Power Institute
  • Software Animates And Analyzes Fluid-Power Curcuits
    Until recently, engineers designing fluid-power systems and electrical controls made schematics with high-end CAD packages, lowcapability 2D sketching software, or both. A component list in Automation Studio appears on the left and a library navigator on the right. A user is looking
  • A better way to model fluid-power systems
    Virtual prototyping fluid-power systems pinpoints trouble spots. Hydraulic systems have been difficult to simulate because they include complex and diverse components with highly nonlinear and discontinuous dynamics. To get around these problems, engineers build low-fidelity models based
  • Rotork fluid power valve actuators in the Chilean pipeline industries
    Pipeline, storage and associated applications in Chile serve to illustrate Rotork's scope of supply for fluid power valve actuators in a range of different technologies to suit diverse and challenging environments.
  • Choosing Between Electromechanical and Fluid Power Linear Actuators in Industrial Systems Design
    Linear actuation plays a critical role in a wide range of products and processes in factory automation, packaging, medical devices, and many other fields. Linear actuators are commonly divided into two main types: fluid power actuators that operate on differential pressure and electromechanical
  • Sustainability, green Operations a Theme in Earthmover, Fluid-Power confabs
    . And for some light entertainment, check out the first-ever Concrete Mixer Driver World Cup race. Held every three years, the expo showcases the latest in construction equipment, fluid power, and power transmission. The combined show features more than 2,000 exhibitors in nearly 2.3 million sq ft of exhibits
  • Trends in Fluid Power
    The past 5 years have been especially exciting for critical hydraulic system component suppliers, especially manufacturers of sensors and actuators. Most notably, the migration towards distributed system control and device-level intelligence have produced the most dramatic changes in our products.
  • BASICS OF DESIGN ENGINEERING: FLUID POWER
    IFPE 2000 welcomes electrical and mechanical power transmission exhibitors. Weighing the advantages of tubing versus pipe The demands placed on today's fluid systems are much tougher than they were a decade ago. Leaks that were once considered nuisances are now classified as fugitive emissions

  • Understanding ANSI/ISO Schematic Symbols for Fluid Power Components
    Recognizing and understanding schematic symbols will enable you to comprehend a circuit's function. Schematic drawings document the machine logic only and are never to be used as a piping diagram. Valves control the direction and amount of flow while actuators are the work producers such as
  • Fluids, Connectors, Fluid Handling Components
    A key element in fluid systems is the means of transmitting power from one location to another. Constructing a hydraulic or pneumatic system involves the design or selection of numerous components, and determining how they will all interact. A point that is often overlooked is that the fluid
