Central compressed air supply


Today, handling technologies and manufacturing and assembly processes cannot be imagined without pneumatics. Whether for feeding, positioning, clamping or gripping of workpieces, branching of material flows, swivelling and sliding of valves or spraying for painting or cleaning: the demands on pneumatics are as varied as the functions that have to be implemented in everyday industrial use. Pneumatic systems used in industry consist of a compressed air supply unit encompassing the generation, treatment and distribution of compressed air, and a power section encompassing pneumatic cylinders, grippers, valves and suction grippers. A compressor generates the compressed air required to power the pneumatic systems. Pneumatic valves control and regulate the flow rate of compressed air in compressed air systems and the supply of energy to the components and subassemblies of the power section.
