The ATS (Automatic Test System) automatically introduces three test pieces into the metal detector's aperture in a controlled manner via a pneumatic system. eDrive technology enables the metal detector to recognize smaller metal contaminants, delivering up to 20 percent increased spherical sensitivity.
Each BO Plus unit is equipped with Easy Load, a pneumatic system that allows positioning of the shafts directly on the waiting hub, after being lifted by the hoists.
The goal was to develop user friendly pneumatic system for fluent control stiffness of mattress in areas of shoulders and hips.
A JUN-AIR compressor was specified for the pneumatic system thanks to its combination of low operating noise and supply of clean compressed air--that is free of oil, water and dust--to the air cylinders, which help to ring the pipes installed in the organ.
No-Tox Food Grade Air Line Lubricant is designed to maximize air tool life and optimize pneumatic system performance by reducing wear, corrosion and deposits, while providing superior bacteriological protection by effectively inhibiting the growth of certain bacteria, yeast and mold in the lubricant.
The units also alert plant personnel to wasted energy when air leaks from a machine's pneumatic system. Features include:
Although it's not as common as it used to be--thanks to electronic heading and attitude sensors in glass panels--losing a vacuum or pneumatic system is an event almost guaranteed to cause momentary SA loss.
The seminar will also explain how to understand the metrics and statistics for leakage in typical pneumatic systems and to identify methods for reducing compressed air losses in a typical pneumatic system.
Two actuators are available, a pneumatic system or a digital electric drive package.
Two actuators are available, including a pneumatic system or a digital electric drive package.
A regenerative amplifier powers an actuator--it delivers 3,500 W while drawing an average 50 W from the battery--that powers a pneumatic system that actively counteracts the vibrations.
With all systems driven directly by small servomechanisms, the running costs and environmental impact can be as low as eight percent of an equivalent pneumatic system, while still achieving the same high standards of versatility and sealing performance.
