Piab introduces a new material for its line of piGRIP® suction cups as well as its smaller Bellows and Universal models. The material – HNBR is known for superior mechanical properties that equates to excellent durability, tear and abrasion resistance. This material provides an extended lifetime compared to conventional suction cup materials. A key application […]
Simrit, the industrial sealing division of Freudenberg-NOK Sealing Technologies, has developed three new piston seals that reduce friction and lower energy consumption in applications like mechanical transmissions and pneumatic cylinders.
Trelleborg’s Turcon MF6 and Zurcon Z431 PEEK seal and bearing materials have third-party verified declaration of conformance to the latest version of 3-A Sanitary Standard 20-27.
Trelleborg Sealing Solutions has launched an improved Isolast J9440. Isolast J9440 now has a higher operating temperature—up to 240 °C / 464° F—and is accredited to the USP Class 6 standard for use in pharmaceutical, medical and healthcare industries.
American High Performance seals offers a T201 Teflon® seal that offers a temperature range of -328°F to 500°F (-200°C to 260°C). The influence of filler materials in T201 results in an increase in mechanical strength, increase in hardness, reduction of wear and/or friction, improvement in the flow strength and increase in thermal shape stability. The […]
Polyurethane’s elastic properties, mechanical strength and wear resistance make it a good material for pneumatic seals. When the polymer’s composition and design development are tuned to the specific demands of pneumatic applications, modern polyurethane pneumatic seals shift operating limits to new levels. This has been validated by rigorous testing and validation. Pneumatic actuators are key […]
A new KNF micro diaphragm gas-sampling pump (Type NMP015.1.2) uniquely integrates head connections inside the housing for improved pneumatic performance in a compact and leak-tight package. This optimized design produces less pulsation and additionally allows for the housing to be closed and sealed for significant reduction in audible noise. The pump ideally suits portable, battery-operated […]
AMS Calibration has released the NOSHOK 400 series of heavy duty mechanical pressure switches. Designed for use across a range of applications such as hydraulic and pneumatic systems, pumps and compressors and in power generation, the switches provide a stable switching point setting. The 400 series switch converts pneumatic and hydraulic pressure into switching functions […]
Endoscopic surgical instrument insertion and retraction through a seal must feel smooth and easy. The more the material “grabs” and adheres to the shaft of the instrument, the more force it will take to manipulate the instrument (not something you want to experience even if you are under anesthesia). A new process, known as F-treat, […]
The biggest attraction at the Elektrotechniek exhibition running this week in Utrecht, Netherlands may turn out to be one of the smallest and simplest products: an electrical contact fashioned from a spring. The BalContact™, an electrically conductive component that employs precision-engineered canted-coil™ spring technology, is being showcased at Elektrotechniek 2009 by U.S-based manufacturer Bal Seal […]
