Miniature stainless steel pneumatic fittings are precision machined from corrosion-resistant 303 and 316 stainless steel. These stainless-steel fittings feature a leak-tight O-ring face-seal design for use in miniature pneumatic fittings. This design reduces operating costs by preventing compressed air losses. Users can choose from Teflon, Viton, Silicone, EPDM, AFLAS, and Buna-N O-ring seals to meet the application's temperature and chemical compatibility requirements.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
