The Easy-2-Combine automation system can now mount pneumatic directional-control valves onto actuators.

The Easy-2-Combine automation system can now mount pneumatic directional-control valves onto actuators. The option provides energy savings by reducing air-tube length (and air volume), while decreasing cycle times, which helps machinery run faster. Series LS04 pneumatic directional-control valves can be mounted to Series RTC and GSU rodless cylinders and Series MSC slide units. The air volume is even more significant if cable tracks are involved. Attaching the LS04 valves to a T-plate provides interface for a Series RCM rotary module, or mounts for a vacuum cup, NCT (Non-Contact Transfer unit), or Series GSP gripper.
Another option is an adapter plate that combines an RTC heavy-duty version rodless cylinder with a compact-guide version RTC, opening up more X-Z axis options. An online configurator simplifies system design and provides CAD drawings.
