New Oxygen Clean Series Electronic Valves (O-E Series) from Clippard are two- or three-way pneumatic control valves designed for use in oxygen environments or other applications sensitive to contamination. Based on Clippard's EV valves, which feature a patented valving system, the new O-E Series is manufactured, cleaned and tested for use in oxygen-enriched environments. And for the sake of low particulate generation in the field, it features only one moving part — a flexing armature that opens and closes the valve without the particulate potentially generated by sliding parts. Clippard rates the flexing armature for up to billion cycles.
At the Design News webinar on June 27, learn all about aluminum extrusion: designing the right shape so it costs the least, is simplest to manufacture, and best fits the application's structural 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 radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
