ASCO Numatics to Merge Miniature Valve Products under the ASCO Brand

FLORHAM PARK, NEW JERSEY, USA - ASCO Numatics, the world's leading manufacturer of comprehensive fluid automation, flow control, and pneumatics solutions, announced today it will merge all of its ASCO and Numatics miniature valve product lines under the ASCO brand, effective immediately. The products include 25 series of direct-acting miniature solenoid valves and manifolds.

"In this merger, we are taking the best products from the former ASCO Scientific and Numatics Miniature Pneumatic Group product lines to create a broader, more customer-focused family of ASCO Miniature Valve Products," said Robert W. Kemple, Jr., executive vice president, sales and marketing - Americas, ASCO Numatics. "Our capability to rapidly customize these miniature valve solutions means product engineers will not have to change their designs to incorporate our products."

ASCO miniature valve products are ideal for engineers developing medical equipment and analytical instrumentation. The solutions can be customized to easily interface with existing product designs. Valve specifications can be adjusted to achieve the desired performance, and specific wire terminations can be selected for easy plug-and-play connectivity.

"ASCO's heritage of product quality and reliability will be highly attractive for critical medical system applications such as oxygen concentrators, critical-care ventilators, dialysis machines, and blood analyzers," said Kemple. "All of our miniature valve products will be built in a clean room environment to eliminate airborne contamination, and complete assemblies will be tested to each customer's requirements."

ASCO miniature valve products are supported by the largest engineering and technical support team in North America. "Our technical and field sales personnel will help customers identify specific miniature valve solutions that will reduce cost and extend equipment life," Kemple said.
