Available in two models
Two new models have been added to the company's T3 Series of gas springs: the T3-170 with a 19 mm diameter and stroke lengths from 7 to 125 mm, and the T3-320 with a 25 mm diameter and stroke lengths from 7 to 125 mm. These products extend the line to 11 models with contact forces from 380 to 21,400 lbs. Both feature a bottom port for gas charging that can also connect to the Micro EZ™ Hose System; also, both incorporate an upper ISO-standard C-groove and threaded bottom hole to allow for a range of mounts.
The company has released a proprietary product line of two-stage air cylinders; the second stage mounts entirely on the extension of the piston in the first stage for applications that require two independent axial forces operating in line on the same centerline. They are designed for a variety of applications, including medical, industrial, and aerospace applications.
For robotics and automation
Texflour™ Fluoroplastic tubing is designed for use in robotics and automation applications. It is offered in PTFE, FEP, and PFA; these materials can be extruded in sizes from 0.125 to 4 inches, and they are engineered to achieve small bend diameters without reducing the flow within the inside diameter of the tube. All materials are FD and USP Class VI approved. The product offers a flexible, nonstick surface for easy cleaning. It is chemical-resistant.
Cylinders and actuators
Containing more than 700 pages of technical and ordering details regarding industrial pneumatic cylinders and actuators, the SC-Master1 catalog features 23 product lines, including TaskMaster® aluminum profile, PowerMaster™ NFPA steel tie rod, and ISO-VDMA profile and tie rod. Also included are right-angle flow controls as accessories. The catalog is also available on CD upon request.

360 degree rotation
The ASR (pressure valve) and ASQ (flow valve) are designed to respond to customers' needs for saving energy. The ASR consists of a regulator with check valve and speed controller; the ASQ consists of quick supply/exhaust valve and speed controller (meter-in, meter-out). The body and one-touch fitting allow 360-degree rotation. Fixed set pressure type and variable set pressure type are available.

Designed for high-efficiency, continuous-duty pumping of low-viscosity liquids, SMF 4 Series miniature diaphragm pumps are widely used in fuel cells and HVAC applications. They are used in medical, laboratory, and industrial settings. The pumps are 3.35 inches in length and weigh 6.4 oz. They have a top-rated fluid flow of up to 270 m,/min, a maximum height of 472 inches H2O, and a maximum suction height of 276 inches H2O. Both 12 and 24V dc motors are available, as well as 115 and 230V ac motors.
Designed to be fully configured for complete valve system accommodation, the Series SAV-SS Angle Seat Valves are constructed of investment cast 316 stainless steel and Teflon® seals. They can be used in most gas, liquid, steam, and sanitary applications; they have a pressure range of 0-290 psig. Prices start at $445 for 0.5-inch, compact, normally closed models, with lines up to 2 inches.
BASKET AIR FILTERS
Extend surface area
The company's Basket Air Filters are engineered to enhance cooling capability in electronics equipment enclosures by significantly expanding air filter surface area. The product's design can more than the double surface area, extending either inside or outside the enclosure. A one-piece fabricated frame and grid design assures sturdiness in standing up to electronics equipment enclosures' high airflow requirements.

The company's new solenoid valve features a typical response time of less than 20 msec, allowing nearly instantaneous correction of payload position or rotation through thrust vectoring. The product's compact and lightweight design uses a pressure-balanced, dual-seat, split-flow poppet for bubble-tight sealing at pressures up to 575 psig. Extremely high mass flow rates are possible. It is configurable for a range of cold-gas systems.

One continuous piece
The company's perforated air filters feature a hex-pattern panel design. They are designed to provide strong, one-piece, low-cost media support. They allow for up to 85 percent open area, maximizing airflow and extending the life of vital electronic components. The products are made of one continuous piece, creating a sturdy support frame, even when the combined thickness of filter media and frame is as thin as 0.25 inch in limited space applications.
