Polygon Company Announces Revolutionary New Cylinder SystemWALKERTON, IN Polygon Company is proud to announce their new pneumatic cylinder known as CTT (Constrained Tube Technology). CTT is a complete pneumatic system that allows the composite tube to be fitted within the confines of a thin-walled outer host. Thecomposite tube carries greater than 90% of the pressure vessel loads while the metallic host enables traditional assembly techniques such as welding, threading, retention rings, and etc.
A housing must be used to handle the additional pressure load for the complete tube assembly. Housings can be 80/20 aluminum or other machined metal. It could be any
material, even a wooden box,, said Paul Lashbrook, lead CTT engineer. Containing housings do not need to be cylindrical nor do they need to be honed or plated, and can even be a lowgradesteel. The housing provides a durable casing for CTT, supporting and protecting the lightweight cylinder,, Lashbook continued. The CTT cylinder is an entire thin-walled actuator system utilizing a new end cap attachment system.
The approach enables the design engineer to achieve the benefits of composite cylinder tubing such as corrosion resistance, improved seal life and unique fluid flow properties without manufacturing assembly changes.
For non-housed units, lower cost polymeric cylinders can provide the needed structure. In traditional cylinders, the metal walls provide both pressure containment and structural strength. With CTT, the inner composite sleeve does all the load work while the thermoplastic outer tube and connection elements provide seamless and cost-effective assembly,, said James Shobert, Polygon Company CEO. End caps can be fitted to secure the host tube and provide a very traditional cylinder outline for non-housed units as illustrated. This blends the high performance characteristics of advanced composites with the durability and economics of standard polymeric materials.
One consistent Achilles Heel of retrofitting composites into existing applications is being able to assemble the finished product using traditional metalworking techniques. Composite cylinder tubing cannot withstand drilling and maintain structural strength. This limited previous composite tubing to tie-rod cylinder applications almost exclusively. CTTTs tubing is not immune to this attachment problem. However, the required housings can be chosen to provide ample attachment points for mounting the assembly.
CTT has surpassed 27 million cycles under elevated testing pressure and is the perfect solution to demanding pressure vessel applications. Balancing performance and cost, it is uniquely suited for todayys lean operational environments.

DIRTY AND WET COMPRESSED AIR LINES?NEW UNIQUE PATENT PENDING LIQUID SEPARATOR REMOVES 99.9% OIL AND WATER FROM
COMPRESSED AIR LINES.
The Nex FlowTM X-StreamTM Liquid Super Separator uses a world patent pending
special radial nozzle centrifugal design to remove 99.9% of liquid mist (including
water and oil mist) without the need of a replaceable filter element. Standard
sizes are 9, 2, and 64 SCFM.
Unlike large upstream separators, these units are designed to be used upstream from
an air gun, blow-off product or any device using compressed air and may be used in
place of a standard air filter. If micron size is a concern, you can still use a
standard water or oil filter but the replaceable cartridge life will be dramatically
extended as the X-StreamTM Liquid Super Separator will remove the vast majority of
the liquids and mist.
Units come complete with an automatic drain, have extremely minimal pressure loss
and are virtually maintenance free. (Only the automatic drain may be subject to
wear and tear and is easily replaced.)

TCU Compensation UnitAutomatic insertion or gripping of precise components is often a challenge. To be
successful, the components have to be exactly aligned with one another. This results in high investment for the customer to ensure proper alignment. Even if components have very tight tolerances, it can be difficult to find the mounting or insertion position reliably. With the TCU compensation unit from SCHUNK, the users are able to overcome these challenges.
The system of SCHUNK, the leader in automation components, consists of two base plates, which are connected with each other via elastomer pads. Therefore, the
compensation unit can compensate in the X, Y and to some extent Z directions. Even
an angular error or a rotational error can be corrected, if required. Depending on
the size of the unit, the compensation path in X/Y-direction can be 2 to 4 mm, the
compensation angle can be between 1.55 and 3.55. Optionally, SCHUNK can equip the
TCU with a pneumatic locking device, which locks the module rigid. This prevents the
attached tooling or gripper from being moved during actuation of the handling

New sizes for the PEH Long-Stroke Servo-Electric GripperSCHUNK has expanded its servo-electric 2-finger parallel gripper of the PEH
series to include sizes 30 and 50. This once again significantly expands the
application spectrum for this universal long-stroke gripper, because with a
maximum stroke of 100 millimeters per finger for the PEH 50, these grippers
are now suitable for a large parts spectrum, extending from small components
to large workpieces. The robust guides are designed for precise handling even
at high loads and the gripping force can be adapted to the broad application
spectrum for the PEH 50 as high as 1400 N, with maximum finger lengths
of up to 250 millimeters.
The PEH grippers are driven by a brushless servo motor, which transfers its
power directly to the ball bearing drive spindle. The base jaws are moved by
a driver on the spindle, while a kinematic unit synchronizes the movements
of the two base jaws based on the rack and pinion principle, which ensures
exact centric gripping with a repeat accuracy of 0.05 mm.
With the new SCHUK controller, the complete control and power electronics
are already integrated in the grippers of the PEH series. This controller is used
for the standardized control of almost all servo-electric components from the
SCHUNK product line and enables very easy programming, pre-configuration
and commissioning. Single commands can be combined to form complete tasks, and
command libraries that are once created can also be used for other modules.
