  • Electronic or Pneumatic Actuation? Advantages of Belimo Electronic Direct Coupled Actuators (.pdf)
    In 1975, when BELIMO was established, pneumatic actuators accounted for 50% of the actuators used in Europe. Today, 95% of those installed are electronic and, in Japan, 80%. BELIMO electronic has over 60% marketshare in both Europe and Japan. Recognition of the cost/benefit ratio of high quality
  • Chrysler brings Ethernet to pneumatics
    sophisticated monitoring of solenoids, circuits, and electronics. It is reportedly the first such system in North America. The pneumatics are incorporated into destackers built for the automaker by (HPT), Napoleon, Ohio. Destackers clean and shuttle blanks into machines that stamp out body panels and interior
  • Sizing Pneumatics for Performance and Efficiency
    Sizing Pneumatics for Performance and Efficiency Consider how every component interacts to design better air circuits. * Traditional techniques size pneumatic circuits based on valve flow. * To improve performance and energy efficiency, consider every component that causes flow restrictions
  • Pneumatics boosts manufacturing efficiency
    can replace many individual output cards, at substantial cost savings. And because valve terminals can be positioned close to the actuators, rather than near the controller, shorter lengths of I/O wiring and pneumatic tubing can be used. Shorter tubing pressurizes faster and actuators respond
  • Improving pneumatics bottom line
    pneumatic systems is to calculate cylinder flow. Armed with this information, designers can correctly size tubing, fittings, valves, and FRLs. Judicious use of pressure regulators can reduce operating costs, for example, by lowering return air pressure when actuators are loaded in only one direction
  • 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
  • How to Streamline Air Circuits
    Here are some tips for sizing pneumatic systems for performance and efficiency. Authored by Michael Foy Design Engineer In today's manufacturing environments, pneumatics often provides ideals solutions for motion-control applications. Pneumatic systems are well suited for applications involving
  • 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
