What is Valuable to You?

Automation

  • Usually a technique, method, or system of operating or controlling a process to become automatic, self-moving, or self-controlling.
  • PROVIDING CONSISTENCY, PRODUCTIVITY AND A COST EFFECTIVE APPROACH TO APPLICATIONS.

Motion Control

  • Motion control is a sub-field of automation, in which the position and/or velocity of machines are controlled using some type of device such as a hydraulic pump, linear actuator, or an electric motor, generally a servo.
  • SIMPLY PUT, THE MUSCLE AND THE BRAINS TO MOVE OR PICK AND PLACE ITEMS, QUICKLY AND ACCURATELY.

Fluid Power

  • Fluid power is energy, transmitted and controlled through a pressurized media, either liquid or gas. The term fluid power applies to both hydraulics and pneumatics. Hydraulics utilizes pressurized liquid—oil or water; pneumatics uses compressed air. Fluid power can be effectively combined with other technologies through the use of sensors, transducers and microprocessors.
  • CONTROL OF WHICH ALLOWS FOR A STRONG TECHNOLOGY.

Hydraulics

  • Practical applications (as the transmission of energy or the effects of flow) of liquid (as water) in motion; a descriptive term for a system operated or moved by a fluid.
  • BRUTE FORCE IN A SMALL PACKAGE.

Pneumatics

  • Filled with or operated by compressed air. Pneumatic machines often involve the transmission of force through air pressure in pipes or tubes.
  • READILY AVAILABLE MEDIA PROVIDING CONTROL OF MULTIPLE APPLICATIONS.

Lubrication

  • Lubrication provides a boundary film between two moving surfaces, thereby preventing wear and allowing for a more energy efficient machine.
  • INSURES PRODUCTIVITY AND MACHINE LIFE.
