Fabco-Air, Inc. Custom Solutions - Custom Pneumatic Slide

The Engineering and Technical Support Team(s) at Fabco-Air possess an unprecedented amount of Fluid Power problem solving experience. Here is just another example of how the team at Fabco-Air is able to offer a custom solution that fulfills the application requirement perfectly.

This application required a pneumatic linear actuator to operate a sorting device on a conveyor system. The challenge was that the actuator had to maneuver a wide variety of part sizes.

Here is a brief summary of the Fabco-Air solution. A GB Series (block style) pneumatic slide/thruster and a Global Series (metric compact) cylinder were combined together to make a 3-position, air-operated device. To expedite the changeover process and to accommodate thickness variations of parts on the conveyor, a Dial-A-Stroke unit was also added. The Fabco-Air Dial-A-Stroke enables quick and easy adjustability of the intermediate stroke position (up to 2 inches).

As you can see, the team at Fabco-Air is more than capable of creating solutions for even the most demanding applications.

Festo Develops a Smart Service Unit that Lowers Compressed Air Energy Cost and Contributes to Improved Machine Operation

The intelligent energy efficiency module MSE6-E2M from Festo automatically monitors and optimizes compressed air use by a machine and also alerts plant personnel to system leaks.

HAUPPAUGE, NY, Festo introduced today a first-of-its-kind intelligent service unit that automatically puts compressed air on standby when a machine stands idle, thus reducing energy consumption. These units also alert plant personnel to wasted energy when air leaks from a machines pneumatic system. The new Festo MSE6-E2M, or E2M for short, can pay for itself in less than a year.
Automatically go into standby mode to save energy.

Based on user defined parameters, the E2M module detects when a machine is idle and automatically shuts off compressed air thereby saving energy. When the unit receives a startup signal from an operator, the E2M resupplies compressed air. In the case of a particularly complex production process, automatic standby detection can be deactivated in favor of manual operation.

The E2M features a solenoid valve integrated with a pressure and a flow sensor in one compact package. A Profibus node provides communication between the E2M and a PLC. Festo plans to introduce Ethernet/IP and PROFINET communication options in 2016. The E2M flows up to 5,000 liters of compressed air per minute, programs easily, and offers fast connection to Festo MS series air preparation units.

Automatic leakage detection
The E2M unit detects pressure drops below a predefined value and sends an alert about the leak. Higher than anticipated air flow during production also indicates a leak and triggers a user defined alert. Eliminating leaks not only saves energy, it brings the compressed air system back to specification, which ensures quality operation of the machine, optimum throughput, and higher overall equipment effectiveness.

A wealth of data
The E2M actively monitors the condition of the pneumatic system in real time. This feature gives plant operators access to up-to-the-minute energy- and process-related data as well as comparative data over time. Values for flow rate, air consumption, and pressure are available. Data can help personnel determine historical trends on consumption, the amount of air consumed per product batch, and pressure and flow at the time of a malfunction or bad batch of product.
Not only is this module suitable for new machines, but it also, thanks to the simple connections, offers an easy retrofit on older machines. For more information on the E2M compressed air energy saving unit call 800-993-3786 and visit www.festo.com/us.

The new compact, low-cost VTUG pneumatic valve

The VTUG is designed for food, beverage, packaging, electronics, semiconductor, and light assembly industries where low cost and assured performance (high flow rate, small footprint, and long cycle life) is essential. Compact, lightweight VTUG aluminum manifold and valve housings can be mounted in cabinets, on machines, and on robotic end effectors. The VTUG valve terminal is also ideal for compact pilot valve applications when using an available dual 3/2-way function valve to accommodate from 4 to 48 solenoids.

The VTUG is ideal for the machine builder that wants to standardize on one valve terminal and offer customers control options from conventional multi-pin up to fieldbus. The original VUVG design, introduced in early 2010, has since taken off as Festoos premiere universal individual connection valve of choice. The success of this product helped influence the plug-in style VTUG. The VUVG design included the E-Boxx approach for electrical connectivity, allowing users to stock one valve body and choose from many designs to match application needs. Each E-Box uses a different electrical connector (such as Festo connectors, standard M8 connector, and other choices). Flexible design philosophy allows the user to select a desired communication preference for the VTUG valve terminal and modify it in the future.

The VTUG valve terminal can be controlled through a multi-pin connector, one cable IO-link interface to a master controller, or through Festoos new CTEU fieldbus module to DeviceNet, EtherCAT, CANopen, Profibus, and several other protocols. Multi-pin and I/O link modules are available as spare parts to easily convert existing valve terminal configurations, ensuring flexible communications.
