Schunk introduces compact ring indexing table

Schunk has expanded its product range and now offers a compact ring indexing table for assembly applications within the Gemotec system.

The RST series is pneumatically driven and is available in two different sizes with the RST 18 and RST 24. Their key differences are the footprint (70x70 mm / 100x100 mm), torque (1.2 Nm / 4 Nm) and in the maximum axial force on the cycle ring (1950 N / 3400 N).

The ring indexing tables can cycle either to the left or the right or alternate, without requiring any modifications. Switching is performed by the pneumatic actuation alone, and the cycle types can be changed in any order and any number of times. Thus, the RST series allows the working process to be stopped, to return a few steps and repeat the processing step in question if errors occur - a unique feature not offered by any other manufacturer.

The angle adjustment can be set simply to 4, 6, 8 or 12 steps. Hydraulic shock absorbers are used as end position dampers in both directions. The repeat accuracy of the angle of rotation is less than 0.033, the axial and radial run-out of the cycle ring is better than 0.02 mm.

As only the cycle ring rotates in the RST series, its special feature is an unusually large fixed central section. This makes it easier to add additional components and assemblies, and features a large feed-through bore. For example, it allows additional assemblies to be supplied with compressed air without the air hoses having to follow any rotating movements of the ring indexing table.

ROSS CONTROLS Introduces Compact Poppet Valves and Manifolds

(TROY, MI) ROSS CONTROLS is pleased to announce the release of its Dale
Series CP and CXcompact poppet valves and manifolds to the market. These
cost effective valves offer customers asuper high-flow product in a small,
manifold-ready design. Continuing ROSSS 78-year tradition of
innovation and reliability, the Series CP and CX have a dirt-tolerant poppet
design and continuousdutyrating which ensure long service life in a broad
array of applications.

The Series CP and CX 2- or 3-way valves are available in normally-open,
normally-closed andremote pilot configurations. The 2-way valves range
from 3/8 to 2-1/22 pipe size with an impressiveCv range of 3.5 to 100.
This high-flow capability is a unique and valuable feature in such a compact
valve manifold design. The 3-way valves range from 1/2 to 11 pipe size and
have a Cv range of 3.6 to 12.3.

These valves can be ordered with inline or manifold base-mounted configurations (with throughholes),
depending on the application requirements. This manifold capability allows customer to save
time and money otherwise spent on piping and reduces potential leak paths, which saves energy.
For added flexibility, the valves are available with customer-specified manifolds that can combine
normally-open, normally-closed, solenoid pilot or remote pressure control operation together in one
manifold to create simple valve systems for traditionally complicated applications. For example, a
common application for these valves is on equipment where media of different pressure levels
(including vacuum) may need to be applied sequentially to a common work piece. Instead of piping
up several valves together with hard pipe, the Series CP and CX valves can be configured into a
common manifold. This is mostly possible due to the valvess revolutionary port pressure
independence which can solve many configuration issues and provide customers with infinite design

The Dale Series CP and CX valves and manifolds are suitable for many applications:
- Pulp and Paper
- Steel Mills- Pickling
- Packaging- Food and Chemical
- Power Generation
- Industrial Mineral
- Vacuum
- Leak Test (Series CX)

For applications where weight is a consideration, the Series CP and CX valves are a great solution
because of their lightweight anodized aluminum alloy construction. Due to their leak tight design, the
Series CX models are ably equipped for leak testing applications. Whatever the application, though,
customers can look forward to time savings and ease of maintenance because the valves provide nonlube
service and its manifolds can be serviced or repaired in minutes.

New dual bi-color LEDs handle double duty for diagnostics and as a setup aid for pushbutton scaling of the position outputs. Communicating to a PC over standard USB, Micropulse Plus outputs can be scaled, inverted, and configured for single- or two-magnet position, velocity, or differential position between two magnets. Intuitive software features a simple-to-use graphical interface that allows drag-and-drop adjustment of the output characteristics. Configuration files can be saved for backup, replication, or for emailing to remote locations. Manual adjustment without a PC is also possible using the included pushbutton tool and simplified setup procedure that minimizes button-pushing complexity while maximizing operational flexibility.

Contrinex Miniature Sensors withstand high pressure in severe environments

Contrinex has developed the Series EE range of miniature sensors that can withstand up to 300psi continuously on the front face. Available in 4mm, M5, 6.5mm and M8 sizes, these devices can be embedded in pressurized systems to detect moving elements or targets.

A typical application is in pneumatic systems to detect piston positions within cylinders. Where cylinders are subject to high vibration and shock, conventional reed switch feedback is often not suitable while the Series EE sensor provides a stable and positive control feedback in the most severe vibration conditions.

Other applications include gear tooth detection for speed or position control in gearboxes, dispensing and water pumps and similar equipment. In addition to its high degree of sealing, this range has a very fast 5KHz, switched output that can be essential when counting small gear teeth reliably.

The sensing face of the Series EE sensors are made from tough sapphire on the 4mm and M5 versions and from thick ceramic on the 6.5mm and M8 models as opposed to the conventional plastic front face found on many sensors of this type that is vulnerable and unsuitable in applications where the sensor is in continuous contact with fluids and lubricants.

The housings are precision machined from tough AISI 303 stainless steel that is resistant to most corrosive liquids and media. High flexibility polyurethane (PUR) cables are fitted to all models. PUR is resistant to most oils and remains flexible even at low temperatures, preventing cracking or splitting that can lead to system failure.

The rear of the sensors are IP68 sealed, they have a wide voltage supply range of 10 to 30VDC, and will switch an output current of 200mA. The sensing range is stable from -255C to +700C, and they are short-circuit- / inverse-polarity-proof and overload protected.

CONTRINEX has manufactured inductive and photoelectric proximity switches since 1972. It specializes exclusively in the development, manufacture and sales of positioning sensors for industrial use. All departments and management levels in the companyys management system are ISO 9001:2000 certified.
