Regulated Motion Made Easy with Enidine Rate Controls
ITT Enidine Inc. Rate Controls are used to regulate the speed or time required for a mechanism to move from one position to another. They use proven technology to enhance performance in a variety of product applications. Rate controls are typically used to control pneumatic cylinders, linear slides, lids, and other moving mechanisms.
The advantages of using rate controls include:
Longer Machine Life – The use of rate controls significantly reduces shock and vibration to machinery caused by uncontrolled machine operation. This further reduces machinery damage, downtime and maintenance costs, while increasing machine life.
Improved Production Quality – Harmful effects of uncontrolled motion, such as noise, vibration and damaging impacts, are moderated or eliminated so that production quality is improved.
Safer Machinery Operation – Rate controls protect machinery and equipment operators by offering predictable, reliable and controlled machine operation.
Competitive Advantage – Machines and end products become more valuable because of increased productivity, longer life, lower maintenance and safer operation. Enidine Incorporated offers a wide range of rate controls that provide motion control in tension, compression, or both directions. Adjustable and non-adjustable tamperproof models are available to fit your particular application requirements. The resisting force provided by Enidine Incorporated rate controls is typically constant over the entire stroke when the piston rod is moved at a constant velocity, since the rate controls are single orifice products.
SKF has extended its range of tachometers, which can help manufacturing companies to optimize their condition monitoring on their production operations.
Emerson has introduced two new compressed air dryers designed to significantly extend maintenance intervals, minimize downtime and reduce energy costs in rail applications, including brakes and door control. Typically, air dryers have an average service interval of fewer than two years. The AVENTICSTM RDD (Roll-Up Desiccant Drying) and RDDmin air dryers have a service interval of eight years or 25,000 operating hours.
