October 15, 2017 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Oct. 14, 2017 – Festo describes its new rugged VUVS-…S and compact VUVG-…S solenoid valves for individual connection as reliable, attractively priced, combinable as valve terminals and available for delivery in Canada in one to two business days.
With features that promise to meet the key requirements of solenoid valves, they are suitable for 80 per cent of all compact or heavy-duty pneumatic applications, says the company. The valve variants are two of Festo’s Stars in Automation core products, which are tagged for fast recognition in the company’s online catalogue with a blue star. As core products, both valve types also are stocked at 13 distribution centres worldwide. The VUVG-…-S compact solenoid is designed for applications such as small parts assembly, for the electronics, food and packaging industries, as well as for special machine construction where the design requires pneumatic valves that fit in tight installation spaces. Meanwhile, the VUVG-…-S is available as an electrically or pneumatically actuated valve and can be expanded to form a valve terminal with an individual connection. With its focused and sturdy characteristics, the VUVS-…-S suits operations in many sectors and markets, from conveying and filling plants to the wood industry, as well as in actuation of cylinders or compressed air networks.
