Pevco’s (www.pevco.com) latest pneumatic tube carrier has been specifically designed for hospital material delivery. Offering advances in durability and performance, the TEC-6 (Trackable Ergonomic Carrier, six-inch) improves on how busy healthcare professionals provide patient care. “When designing the TEC-6, we studied how nursing, pharmacy and laboratory professionals use carriers in the course of their day. […]
AutomationDirect has added new models of tubing and fittings to its NITRA line of pneumatic components, as well as blow guns and aluminum manifolds.
AutomationDirect has added new tubing and hose options to its NITRA line of pneumatic components, including bonded straight and coiled styles.
NITRA polyurethane (PUR) tubing is made from high quality 100% virgin raw materials. It has a hardness specification of Shore A 98, which is close to the hardest of the flexible type plastics. It is ether based to provide excellent hydrolysis as well as oil and cold resistance. Because of its ability to resist absorbing […]
The German energy chain specialist igus has developed a compact chain system that can turn cables and pneumatic supply lines through ±1,500 degrees in a tiny space. The TwisterBand TB30 chain guides energy, data and media with little wear. Even at high rotating speeds, the system, which needs no guide, stays close to the axis. […]
An innovative application for pneumatics helps power a unique vehicle. The Hydrogen Hybrid Bus (HHB), was built by Golden, CO-based Proterra with funding from the U.S. Federal Transit Administration (FTA) as part of the National Fuel Cell Bus Program, and is managed by the Center for Transportation and the Environment (CTE). The HHB is operating […]
One of the most important working parts of Stanford Hospital is practically invisible ― and its invention dates back more than 200 years. Seven thousand times a day, in four miles of tubing laced efficiently behind walls from basement to rooftop, a pneumatic tube system shuttles foot-long containers carrying everything from blood to medication. In […]
Aerospace is among the more demanding applications for tube bending with manufacturing tolerances becoming tighter. Yet it’s still commonplace to see older-style hydraulically actuated benders in use. All-electric bending equipment from Unison Ltd. has helped GKN Aerospace produce tubular parts with as many as 19 bends, complex shapes with multi-radius coils, and bending titanium tubing […]
ERIE, PA – Innovative Pressure Technologies (IPT) introduces High Pressure Tubing. Made of 316L Stainless Steel as standard, this quality tubing is available in a wide variety of sizes and grades to satisfy specific application needs, and is highly resistant to corrosion. This tubing provides good resistance to organic acids at high concentrations and moderate […]
Coreflex™ Series U-COR hose offers flexibility, yet resists kinking. A smooth-bore PFA core supplies a chemically-inert, non-aging, nonstick surface for use in sanitary applications. The hose is nonabsorbent and will not impart taste or odor, is easy to clean, and features ultralow extractibles. The hose can be autoclaved and sterilized in accordance with system cleaning […]
