Tolomatic: High Force Linear ActuatorsIn the past the only solution for high-thrust linear motion was fluid-powered cylinders that used high-pressure air or hydraulic oil.
To address these delivery concerns, Flow Products can provide Parker pneumatic products such as air cylinders, global air preps and valves in less than 1 week.The COVID 19 pandemic has brought on a multitude of operational/supply chain challenges to manufacturing facilities. This is impacting many suppliers of pneumatic products that rely on overseas plants, resulting in delivery delays and shortages on quantities to a large base of customers. Some suppliers have cut back operations while others have shut down temporarily. This can have a major impact on companies that use pneumatic products in their effort to service essential operations and key industries.

Get the CONTROL You Need with Canfield Connector's MCCR!This patented, unique cable distribution connector uses pass-through technology to allow a single connector to control multiple parallel or independent devices. Devised with double solenoids and solenoid valve manifolds in mind, the MCCR allows for simplified wiring and easy replacement of components in an automated, modular environment.
The Series MCCR saves at least one wire run from the control to the solenoid valve including associated hardware and processes. Two available circuits allow for separate (independent) or parallel (simultaneous) control of the downstream device(s) which can also be daisy-chained depending on current requirements.
The Series MCCR is designed to work with devices that use the DIN Style “A” EN175301-803 (Formerly DIN 43650) interface.

How to Get Clean, Dry, Oil-free Compressed Air From Any Compressor.Compressed air is vital to any manufacturing process. Many companies, including those in the food and beverage, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, manufacturing and electronics industries, recognize the negative effects on quality created by oil contact with their product during production.
Parker introduces the P2H IO-Link network node on the H Series ISO valve family.These valve manifolds offer more options than ever before to allow safety integration:
Safe Power Capable: Using safe power with a safety device such as an e-stop, light curtain or other device to trigger
power of both on the manifold and across the plant if needed. Valve manifolds can be designed to
accept safe power. When the safety device is breached safe power is removed but the valve is still
able to communicate through the network.
Introducing the PT2020 Automated Pump Controller SystemHigh Pressure Equipment Company introduces the first-of-its-kind Automated Controller System for air-driven high pressure hydraulic pumps. The PT2020 controller is designed to provide automated pressure control for a wide range of hydrostatic testing. Operators simply setup their test, press start and walk away… the PT2020 will automatically run the test, give a pass/fail reading and generate a test certification report.
Parker IO-Link Network NodesParker IO-Link network nodes provide a compact, cost effective solution for customers wanting to integrate IO-Link technology to their valve manifolds. IO-Link nodes allow for a robust, cost efficient connection to any IO-Link master, Class A or Class B.

Enerpac Product Announcement
New DuroTech Series Air Driven Power Unit for High-Use Applications
Enerpac introduces its new, durable air-driven power unit technology built for high-cycle industrial applications. The DuroTech™-Series is well-suited for use in production applications offering a durable dual ram pump with a steel reservoir and protective steel shroud. DuroTech pumps have a long-life and are fully serviceable. The dual ram pump action offers high-oil capacity and automatic pressure control. Additionally, it requires no air lubrication, runs cool, and has reduced noise levels. One key feature to this product is the reciprocating, dual ram piston pump. Every time the piston moves it creates flow, meaning less reciprocating versus single ram systems for more flow and longer life.

Hydraulic Filtration Carts
Flow Products Hydraulic Filtration Carts are the ideal way to prefilter and transfer fluids into reservoirs or to clean up existing systems.
Fluid should always be filtered before being put into use. New fluid is not necessarly clean. Most new fluids (right out of the drum) are unfit for use due to high initial contamination levels.

Parker Compressed Air Dryers
Eliminate water in your airline, improve productivity
Is your compressed air system ready for the summer heat and all the humidity that comes with it?? The problem we all struggle with is removing the water vapor, condensed water and water aerosol contained in the compressed air lines before it reaches critical production equipment. Because the compressed air cools in the lines after exiting the compressor, water condensation occurs at various points downstream including in valves, air cylinders, air receivers, hand tools and machinery. The results are sputtering of hand tools, creation of rust, inconsistent line pressure, production slow down, added repair time – loss of production.
