  • Proportional Valves For Closed-Loop Control Of Inert Gases In Process Automation
    Proportional Valves For Closed-Loop Control Of Inert Gases In Process Automation

    In many process automation applications, the pressure and flow of gases are controlled.  Explosion protection requirements mean that an inert atmosphere is often created and maintained in reactors and process tanks in a plant.  This is usually done with nitrogen and in some cases also with argon.  Other applications include the transfer of materials between process tanks and filling, using inert gas, air, sterile air and carbon dioxide.

  • Ready-To-Install Laboratory Automation Systems For Efficient Laboratory Processes
    Ready-To-Install Laboratory Automation Systems For Efficient Laboratory Processes

    Analytical laboratories have to provide sound results in a short time.  Speed and reproducibility play a significant role here.  Modern automation technology saves time, increases quality and reduces costs for the transport and distribution of samples.  Ready-to-install subsystems from Festo are opening up new possibilities for efficient processes in laboratory automation.

  • The Right Way To Buy Valves And Valve Terminals
    The Right Way To Buy Valves And Valve Terminals

    The global market for valves and valve terminals today is so large that it is almost impossible to maintain an overview. Often, price seems the only buying criterion. But it pays to look more closely, particularly with regard to higher productivity and process reliability.

  • Key Considerations For Designers Looking At Bearing Systems With Linear Axes
    Key Considerations For Designers Looking At Bearing Systems With Linear Axes

    The majority of electro-mechanical axis utilise extruded aluminium profile in a range of sizes with a single guide rail and bearing arrangement driven by an electric motor through a belt or ball screw arrangement.

    Cleanroom Suitability: What Products And Product Conditions Are Necessary?

    More and more industry segments have to manufacture their products under clean conditions.

  • Manufacturing Plants Based on the Lego Principle
    Manufacturing Plants Based on the Lego Principle

    Smaller batches and different types of product in the same plant – these are the market demands to which more and more manufacturers in the process industries need to adjust. The answer is plants based on the “Lego principle”.

  • Meeting The Emerging Challenges In Manufacturing: Applications Of Lightweight Robotics
    Meeting The Emerging Challenges In Manufacturing: Applications Of Lightweight Robotics

    This white paper examines the advances in mechanics and controls that are enabling the practical and economical application of lightweight robotics for manufacturing on an increasingly broad scale. It is an important development in today’s “new manufacturing.”

  • A Better Alternative:  Piezo Technology In Pneumatic Valves
    A Better Alternative: Piezo Technology In Pneumatic Valves

    Piezo valves are often a better alternative to conventional solenoid valves, especially in the areas of flow and pressure control and as directly controlled proportional valves. They are small, lightweight, extremely precise, very durable, incredibly fast and above all they save energy. For example, piezo valves do not need any energy to maintain a switching status. They therefore generate virtually no heat. In ATEX applications, many piezo valves are classified as intrinsically safe. What is more, piezo valves can potentially be operated without any noise. Another key advantage is that they always work proportionally – and are very wear-resistant too.

VIAFILL Multifunctional Reagent Dispenser

VIAFILL Multifunctional Reagent Dispenser

VIAFILL offers more liquid handling functionality than conventional bulk reagent dispensers. In addition to the rapid reagent dispensing functionality, VIAFILL can also be utilized as a multichannel pipette using disposable pipette tips or a plate washer, combining three operations into a single instrument. A choice of different dispensing cassettes allows individuals to quickly change between these three modes making VIAFILL a versatile tool for laboratories which perform a range of different liquid handling applications. These applications include reagent dispensing, cell seeding, plate washing and serial dilutions. The bidirectional communication capability allows the VIAFILL to act as a slave when integrated within larger automated systems.
