Pneumatic actuators allow closed, high-pressure air and gas loops to convert kinetic energy into a physical, pushing force. Actuators are a vital part of many plants, workshops, and factories, valued for their fast action and typically excellent speed-to-force ratios. However, no two actuators are the same. Strength, length, and motion all vary from unit to unit.
If you operate a FESTO electromechanical solenoid valve as any part of a hydraulic or fluid control system, setting up a regular testing schedule is essential. Electrical test pulses ensure the internal magnetic mechanism still performs to the excellent standard expected. Here’s how it works:
Short cycle and changeover times, increased flexibility, and efficient use of materials are often key requirements for manufacturers keen to optimise their output and their profits.
Choosing a pneumatic valve may be complicated especially if you don’t know the right company to turn to. Festo is one of the leading pneumatic valve manufacturers in the world. They offer high performance products at reasonable prices.
