  • Sizing pneumatic cyclinders and ISO valves
    Look at flow coefficient, cylinder bore, and rod speed to best match pneumatic actuators and valves. In recent years, much discussion has centered on ratings (also known as capacity coefficients or flow factors) and whether or not American, European, and Japanese pneumatic-valve manufacturers rate
  • Clearing the air on pneumatic valve ratings
    Flow specifications based on Japanese test standards tend to overstate performance. Vice President for Research & Development Most design engineers select pneumatic control valves based on performance data published by the valve manufacturer. Usually the key performance factor is how much air
  • Sorting out the truth about pneumatic standards
    Japanese test methods better predict pneumatic valve performance. SMC follows the latest ISO standards when rating pneumatic valve flow in terms of sonic conductance. Full stroke time of a pneumatic cylinder is inversely proportional to the maximum exhaust flow rate. represents the maximum constant
  • Load Cell Application - Car Door Test
    In this particular application, a car door is being tested. This test can be used to determine whether or not the door could function for a certain time period, or how long it will last before it fails. It works by using the hydraulic / pneumatic actuator to open and close the door within a given
  • Extending Transducer Calibration Range by Extrapolation Technical Note
    the transducer with known masses and lever arms, or using a comparison method where load is generated by hydraulic or pneumatic means and the transducer under test is compared to a reference transducer. In either method, the cost of calibration equipment rises rapidly with increasing capacity.
  • Redesign Provides Variable Gear Connection
    torque value required the instant they start. The engineers put the pneumatic motor on the test bench and gave it a complete design overhaul. From this rigorous process emerged an air motor that is a shining light of economy; an attractive price and fast delivery lead times speak for themselves.
  • Pneumatics and aerodynamics could boost tractor-trailer fuel efficiency
    mph. A control truck that did not have the aerodynamic improvements or pneumatic-control system was operated under the same conditions for a comparison. As an additional control, the test truck was
  • Medical Device Link .
    . The feeder 's drive unit secures the bowl top, which is dowelled into position for accuracy by means of a pneumatic clamp. The clamping mechanism is operated via push button, and no tools are needed for changeover. To adhere to GMP standards for cleanrooms, all tooling is manufactured from Type 316L
