Adding the control, rigidity and power of hydraulics to a pneumatic machine

Sponsored by Fabco-Air

Air-Oil tanks provide a cost effective alternative to hydraulic systems when precise air cylinder motion is required in medium pressure applications. White paper reviews useful circuitry and provides tips for setting up air-oil systems.
Topics include:
• By-directional cylinder motion control
• Controlling speed & shock on an air press
• Stop & hold functions using basic air valves
• Using boosters to pump high pressure fluid
• One-shot holding cycle for parts clamping
