CONTROLS' new compact 2
DM2® Series D valve is the latest
addition to ROSS' press application double valve family. The 100 percent
dynamically monitored valve has complete memory, is control-reliable and
Category-4 rated for press clutch/brake applications.
D products integrate memory, monitoring and air flow functions into two
identical valve elements. In the event of asynchronous valve element movement
during actuation or de-actuation, the DM2
Series D valves will lock out,
resulting in less than 1 percent residual outlet pressure, inhibiting further
operation of the press.
enhanced safety, DM2 Series
D valves were designed so that removing and reapplying air pressure cannot
reset the valve. A variety of fault reset options are provided (remote air
signal, optional integrated electrical/solenoid, or manual), all of which
require overt action per ANSI, EN and many other global regulations.
D family offers patented dirt-tolerant, wear-compensating poppet design which
provides quick response and high flow capacity. To ensure long service life and
sure shifting capability in potentially harsh environments, the valve has Teflon-coated
back-up rings on its pistons (non-lube service standard, inline lubrication acceptable).
valve is base-mounted, available with BSPP or NPT pipe threads and was designed
with inlet and outlet ports on both sides (plugs included for unused ports).
The size 2 valve offers a 3/2 normally closed valve function and is available
in 1/4 or 3/8 inch port sizes.
Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
The term "multiphysics" is used to describe the simulation of multiple types of physics and their influence on one another -- for example, the investigation of the behavior of a chemical in liquid form will involve both chemistry and fluid dynamics.
