  • Case Study: Pneumatic Braking Systems in Transportation (.pdf)
    A major train sorting yard in the Midwest was experiencing critical downtime due to complex repair of existing train braking system. The Problem. Repair on the old valve system meant the maintenance person had to shut down the yard for an extended period of time to remove all the piping in order
  • Pneumatics troubleshooting gets easier
    Embedded diagnostics in pneumatic valves gives advanced warning of impending failures. The Drive Diagnostic Link system monitors valve performance and sends diagnostic information directly to a PLC. DDL is a daisychained-serial link that forms a single fieldbus node. A newly developed
  • Enter the smart zone
    The Smart Suite can be assembled to handle a variety of pneumatic functions. The Smart Suite is a group of compatible pneumatic products from IMI Norgren Inc., Littleton, Colo. It includes a cylinder, programmable proportional valve, pump, intelligent FRL, and intelligent valve. Manufacturers can
  • Making Air Systems Clean & Quiet
    Coalescing mufflers help pneumatics meet government guidelines. Most pneumatic systems are lubricated, despite the fact that oilless pneumatic systems have been available for some time. While lubricated systems require additional components, oil, and periodic maintenance, many users deem the total
  • Sorting out servopneumatics
    Proportional pneumatics hold a sizable cost advantage over electric and hydraulic systems. The LS servopneumatic control system includes a dedicated device controller and a five-port, three-position, closedcenter directional valve. It accepts command signals from sources such as PLCs and computers
  • Servopneumatics offers reliable, economical motion
    Advances in controls and networks combined with components that pack more punch have opened the door to more-precise, durable, and economical pneumatic systems. When it comes to motion control, conventional thinking usually produces designs with electromechanical drives and computer-controlled
  • 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
  • Software Animates And Analyzes Fluid-Power Curcuits
    simulation, high-pressure lines turn red and lowpressure lines turn blue, valves shift, and cylinders push out and retract. The simulator also plots pressure versus time at user-selected locations. Automation Studio can also produce bills-of-materials. Users have to first learn to set up a template
  • No lube, no problem
    Self-lubricating, nonmetallic bearings handle tough jobs and need little or no maintenance. Filament-wound composite bearings are available to fit round, square, or hex shafts, in standard metal housings, with either two-bolt or four-bolt flange or pillow-block mountings. A belt conveyor
