Tolomatic has created a cost-effective, patent pending custom electric belt driven actuator design capable of achieving speeds of over 100inches/sec with consistent part placement. The LZT Actuator utilizes a servo motor solution that is controlled using Add-On Instructions (AOI) over EtnerNET/IP™ for easy integration.
Traditionally, these types of speeds are only achievable with pneumatics or a costly linear motion solutions. The LZT Actuator is cost-effective replacement for low-force pneumatic cylinders in applications such as product kick-offs, escapements and part placers.
Piab introduces a new series of food contact suction cupssuitable for direct picking of everything from chocolate pralines to fish sticks. Designed to meet the most stringent hygiene standards, Piab's 13 food contact cups have no pockets in which dust or dirt can collect, and are made of food contact materials that comply with FDA and EU 1935 regulations. Cups and fittings also comply with metal detectors available on the market and their blue color suits the visual inspection systems used in the food industry.
Only a low vacuum level is needed to collapse the bellows on the cups. This is important as a high vacuum can compromise or even completely ruin delicate food products. The low vacuum level is also ideal for side channel blowers
The Clippard NIV Series Media Isolation Valve is a solenoid-operated device that uses a flexible diaphragm to isolate the actuation mechanism from the fluid path. Media isolation valves are commonly used for a wide variety of applications, including those that require precise, repeatable dispensing of media for analytical instrumentation. All wetted areas of the valve are PTFE, making this series ideal for use with corrosive media.
Nason's LC series of pneumatic guide load actuators were designed to be compact, long lasting, load carrying devices for today's demanding design requirements. They are offered in both side and rear mount variations as well as many bores and strokes to fill the need of today's design engineers.
