SCHUNK DPGplus: Sealed Two-Finger Parallel Gripper, Now In New Sizes
The successful DPGplus series of sealed 2-finger parallel grippers has been extended with sizes 240 and 300. The pneumatic drive with oval pistons and the multi-tooth guides ensure the user precise and reliable gripping. This ensures a high level of machine up time and high returns from your production and assembly applications.
The DPGplus sealed 2-finger parallel gripper is an expert at handling rough or dirty workpieces. It is perfectly suited for loading and unloading in harsh environments, like grinding machines, lathes, and milling machines. It is also suitable for use in painting systems, powder coating systems, or underwater.
The sealed grippers of the DPG-plus series feature sealing class IP 67 for the highest sealing in its class, with moments between 30 Nm and 160 Nm, (22 Ft-lb-118 Ft-lb) depending on the direction of load and size of the unit and grip forces up to 11,700 N (2,630 lbf). The high sealing class and performance are made possible by combining a multi-tooth guide with a round sealing surface of the base jaws toward the outside.
Herkules Pneumatic Scissor Lift Table with Tilt and RotateHerkules Equipment Corporation has designed and built a new Scissor Lift Table that Tilts and Rotates, providing a unique solution for certain applications. This lift system was specifically requested for an application that raises, spins and tilts large containers of special liquids during the production process which improves the ergonomic conditions for workers. The tilt is limited to an angle of 10 degrees maximizing control during the process. The manual rotate turns 360 degrees and the air brake allows it to be securely locked in any position for ease of processing and operator safety.
Manually rotating the 422 x 644 platform is effortless due to the high grade bearing used within the lift system. Push and pull forces are as low as 5 pounds. Rotation can be performed in both directions, providing maximum flexibility.
The lift system has a 4,000 lb capacity, with a full raised height of 322. All controls are located on one remote pedestal.
Herkules Equipment Corporation has been manufacturing Pneumatic Lifting Equipment for over 25 years, including (standard and custom); Lift Tables, Lift & Rotates, Lift & Tilts, Operator Lifts, Power Rotate Systems, Lifts for Integration, Cart Positioners, and Pallet Positioners. Herkules has now expanded itss product offerings under a new brand name, Enkon Systems, that includes Electric Lift Systems and Hydraulic Lift Systems.

Two Compressors One Cabinet Kaesers HSD is the first of its kindAnnouncing Kaesers latest innovation in progressive air system technology the new 2-in-1 HSD compressor! It is the first of its kind featuring two independently operating compressors in a single enclosure. These new packages are available from 500-650 hp, and deliver flows from 1632-3002 cfm and pressures from 100-217 psig.
Each HSD incorporates two individual compressor units including a motor, Sigma Profile airend, separator aftercooler, draintrap and filtration. Because each module is a complete compressor and not just two airends stacked together the HSD provides maximum part-load efficiency, built-in redundancy, and reduced installation costs.
HSD compressor units are started one after another to reduce inrush current and protect against network overload. Both compressor units have dedicated Sigma Controls connected via Profibus for energy efficient sequencing and fully automatic monitoring of critical operating and maintenance indicators. Plus with the Sigma Frequency Control option, the HSD is not only the largest variable frequency drive in its class, but it also doubles the flow range of previous models.
For more information on how the HSD can reduce footprint, lower installation and maintenance costs, while providing the air of two units, please call 800-777-7873 or visit us at www.kaeser.com/sigma.

This unique range and versions show that the PZN-plus grippers are able to handle almost any conceivable application.
Mini Solenoid Operators for Multiple Uses from SpartanSpartan Scientificcs solenoid operator Series 3800 is specially designed for the pilot function of 3 and 4 way pneumatic directional control valves. These operators are available in plate mount and are interchangeable with most solenoid operator interfaces. The Series 3800 also can be used in 2 way or 3 way manifold assemblies where multiple valves are combined into a single block station for transmission of air, water, or other liquid medium. The simple plate mount operator and the interchangeable orifice baskets easily make small manifolds for regulation of either automated work stations or coolant water in molding presses. These mini solenoid operators are ideal for small custom valves such as those used to operate hospital bed air cushions and air-ride bellows car systems. The Series 3800 has a pressure range of vacuum to 200 psi depending on the orifice size and is dust-tight and water resistant to IP 65. The shading ring is standard enabling both AC and DC coils to be used on all armatures.
Spartan Scientific is certified to ISO 9001 with design. The Series 3800, like all Spartan Scientific products, is manufactured in the USA to the highest quality standards. Complete specifications and options can be found at www.spartanscientific.com or by calling Bob Howard at 330-758-8446 x 122.
