A combination of pneumatic valve components used to inflate a volume or apparatus in one controllable function, and to release or vent pressure in a second controllable function, Clippard's new EFB Series Fill & Bleed circuits are used in many applications where a particular pressure, firmness, or position can be controlled with the addition or venting of pressure.
See it at PACK EXPO, Booth #3551 (with Bosch Rexroth)! Suitable for assembly close to the actuator, Aventics’ Advanced Valve AV03 valve systems are extremely compact and light, exceptionally modular, and are said to use up to 20% less compressed air, providing engineers more freedom to arrange pneumatics decentrally to increase efficiency.
Designed to adjust or stop cylinder movement and de-energizing, the new Festo VFOF model LE-BAH adds control functionality by providing one-way speed control, manual override, and emergency stop functionality – holding a piston’s position even in the vertical position – in a single compact unit.
Clippard's EGV Series valves are electronically piloted versions of the GV series valves, for large-flow, low-leak applications is available in 1/8-in. NPT ported and manifold mount, utilize Clippard 10 mm or 15 mm valves, and offer numerous voltage and connection options.
Festo’s VFOF, VBNF, and VBQF multi-functional pneumatic control valve series have been redesigned to create multi-functional units that are said to be less expensive to purchase than comparable solutions, more than 50% smaller in terms of height, save energy, and are easier and faster to install, troubleshoot, and maintain.
EXAIR has expanded Long Super Air Knives to include a maximum length of 108″ (2743mm) and is now manufacturing all knives 60″ (1524mm) and longer in one piece construction. New one piece construction ensures seamless airflow and eliminates coupling multiple short length air knives together. One piece construction decreases overall height by ½″ making it better for tight spaces.
EXAIR’s new PEEK 3/8 NPT Super Air Nozzle™ has been engineered to produce the highest performance attainable. The protective aerodynamic slots guide the airflow to a single point of convergence for hard-hitting force and dramatic noise reduction over typical blowoffs.
