"Many manufacturing processes have interchangeable tooling in their machines. These tools require pneumatic, hydraulic, chemical, or electrical connections to operate. Instead of connecting individual connections one at a time, they can be connected at the same time."
Pneumatics has had different diagnostic features for some time. For example, we can sense today whether the power is too low or too high, or whether there is a short circuit in an I/O system which caused some sort of failure.
Pneumatic circuits can be safe when carefully examined and implemented. The designers can use the appropriate level of reliability based on their assessment of the risk and frequency of the potential risk.
The FAULHABER stepper motor AM3248 raises the bar in terms of performance and dimensions. Offering up to 10,000 rpm, it achieves five times the speed of comparable stepper motors. Combined with a gearhead reduction of 100:1, it supplies a torque of 5 Nm. With a diameter of just 32 mm, it is suited for a wide range of applications in areas such as aerospace, laboratory automation, the semiconductor industry, robotics and 3D printing. Learn more!
