  • The basics of pneumatic control valves
    Directional valves such as Parker Hannifin's B3G-Series threeway (left) and four-way valves are often used to control pneumatic operations. Directional-control valves are vital in any pneumatic circuit, directing or blocking airflow to control the speed or sequence of operations. One method
  • Pneumatics boosts manufacturing efficiency
    Valve terminals keep pace with the latest control systems and communications networks. Festo's CPX valve terminal's modular design lets users install a range of pneumatic valves, fieldbus protocols, and digital and analog I/O. Built-in diagnostics help pinpoint faults such as out-of-tolerance
  • 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 troubleshooting gets easier
    pneumatic-control system provides basic valve operation, as well as detailed monitoring of electrical solenoids, sensors, wiring, and connections. Called Drive Diagnostic Link (DDL), the system checks that every valve's supply voltage is within acceptable tolerances, solenoid coils operate properly
  • Pneumatics ensures ultraclean packaging
    Tetra Pak Carton Chilled Inc., Minneapolis (, recently introduced a new Gable Top Liquid Carton filling machine that incorporates cleandesign pneumatics to ensure washdown resistance, efficient operation, and low maintenance. The CDVI valve manifold features smooth, easy-clean
  • Are You Taking Full Advantage of Pneumatic Valve Technology? (.pdf)
    Pneumatic valves have come a long way since the development of the compressor over a century ago. Starting with large manual and mechanical valves, they migrated to individually wired electric solenoids and ultimately ended up with plug-into-the-base electronics allowing for a single multi-pin
  • Right-sizing pneumatic motion systems
    Consider every system component to ensure top performance with minimal losses. I am disappointed every time I see the flow coefficient used to size a valve without consideration given to the other components in a pneumatic circuit. In the old days, a focus on the valve alone often worked because
  • Sorting out the truth about pneumatic standards
    a density conversion factor. Measurements on solenoid valves using ISO test equipment show that maximum flow rate varies with valve construction and critical pressure ratio, even if is identical from valve to valve. (ANSI) presents only one point on the flow-rate curve at the extreme end of the subsonic
