SuperStar 0.01 Micron filters feature a four-stage design for effective operation in compressed-air systems. The units support 50, 75, or 100 SCFM flow rates at pressures as high as 250 psi and 25 ft. downstream. An extractor/dryer removes particles down to 5 micron and 99% of condensed liquid from the airline, while a charcoal absorption element inhibits contaminants as small as 0.01 micron. A flex hose is also included, in addition to a membrane dryer that continuously removes water vapor before air reaches the application.

The AccuteX Great Economy (GE) Wire EDM machine features cutting speeds as high as 33.5 in.2/hr using 0.012-in. high-speed wire. Targeting die/mold applications, automatic wire threading (AWT) provides fast submerged rethreading at the break point without dielectric drainage or refilling. An SD master ensures hole-to-hole and machine-to-machine repeatability and intelligent corner- and arc-control provide high precision on any shape. Spark-to-spark times are as low as 15 seconds, and a W-axis rotary table can be positioned for both vertical and horizontal applications. An exclusive air-driven wire-removal system quickly disposes of any length of waste wire. It will be demonstrated at IMTS 2016, booth S-8536.

The DVC series of motor controllers features digital four-quadrant servo drives that are designed and built to operate modern mobile electric vehicular platforms. They provide high power from battery supplies and an IP65-rated compact design. Multiple operating modes can control either permanent-magnet brushed or brushless motors in mobile robots, AGV’s, UGV’s, material handling, and transport vehicles in industrial and military environments. Capable of electrically driven actuation from traction and propulsion to steering and lifting, it also communicates over CANopen and can be configured with DriveWare 7 configuration software.

The 563TJ TOUGHJacket hose is designed to withstand strains in large-scale, heavy-duty applications. It is compact, light-weight, and rated at 3,000 psi. With a low length change under pressure, it targets boom and calve track applications, and its small outer diameter makes routing easier on the tracks. It is resistant to abrasion, performing better than rubber and enhanced rubber in abrasion testing. They meet SAE 10017R requirements and are offered in sizes ranging from ¼-in. I.D. to ½-in. I.D.

The NS Series of touchscreen human machine interfaces (HMIs) offer built-in Ethernet communications, alarms, recipes, data logging, and live video input/display capabilities. Data can be interchanged between a wide range of devices, including special I/O units, intelligent devoices, and PLCs. Its Smart Active Parts library enables users to drag and drop preprogrammed function blocks into a project while establishing communication and parameters. Ladder program monitoring enables users to monitor PLC program statuses, search for addresses or instructions, and monitor multiple I/O points. To reduce troubleshooting efforts, faults can be directly reset.

The Q-545 compact linear stage measures 45mm wide and provides higher force and velocity than conventional inertia drives. It targets applications in research and OEM instrumentation that require high accuracy, such as photonics, bio-technology, nanotechnology, precision-optics, life-sciences, or medical design. It leverages stick-slip drive motors powered by differences in static and dynamic friction coefficients between surfaces to eliminate the need for gears. Its construction reduces wear and comes in variations that enable 0.5- and 1-in. travel. An integrated optical reference encoder and limit switch ensure 5-nm resolution position control. DC-servo motor versions are available upon request.

The Model 600 series of pneumatic pinch valves ensure non-contamination of media, while enabling fast change out of tubing and valves in fluid, air, or gas systems that use flexible, disposable tubing. They eliminate adhesive dispensing of viscous, sticky, and corrosive materials that eat away at the internals of wetted valves and constantly drive up the need for replacements. The series comprises three models (603, 604 and 606) that support tubing outer diameters up to 0.375 in., 60 psi media pressures, and hardness ratings up to Shore 70 material. Units are equipped for panel mounting and easy tube loading, and are available in single-acting, normally-open, closed, or double-acting formats. All units weigh less than a pound.

A 19-in. 6-slot horizontal 3U VMEbus chassis can be configured to product requirements and works with products from UTC Aerospace Systems, a US-based global supplier of advanced aerospace products. A 24-in. extended depth 3U chassis, along with a sub-rack recessed by 2.4 in. from the front of the enclosure, improves its size-compatibility with many applications. The 6-slot VMEbus backplane contains passive terminations and ABG connectors to interconnect with horizontally mounted 6U boards to save space. The cooling system consists of fans on the left side of the unit, taking in cool air through a removable filter and exhausting air from the right side. Finally, a rear-mounted custom embedded 5- or 12-V power supply unit provides 400 W of power via an electromagnetic-compatibility (EMC) screened mains inlet. The unit is EMC-screened to a commercial level.
