New AirNC Electro-Pneumatic Servo System Ideal for Food and Packaging Applications
The Rexroth AirNC electro-pneumatic servo system incorporates all functions of a true servo system: position control, speed control and force control, making it ideal for demanding applications like liquid filling and flexible packaging.
The AirNC from Rexroth is a pneumatic servo system designed to be integrated into the main control system through digital, analog or serial communications. The system incorporates all functions of a true servo system: position control, speed control and force control. The system clearly takes pneumatics beyond the offering of traditional pneumatic positioning systems.
The AirNC system includes the following three modular components: AirNC programmable control unit, ND-7 high performance proportional electro-pneumatic valves, and pneumatic actuators with integrated SSI transducers - with hygienically designed all stainless steel actuators as an option. The system offers high pressure/force reproducibility and precise position feedback. Repeatability is +/- 0.7mm. Strokes are available from 25 to 500mm, with accuracy below +/-1mm. Cylinder speeds are between 0.05 to 0.5 meter/second or greater. The system can use up to 4 each analog inputs and outputs, and digitally 8, 16 or 24 inputs and outputs. Major bus protocols are supported for serial communication.
Bosch Rexroth Corporation, a merger of Bosch Automation Technology and Rexroth, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Robert Bosch GmbH. In the year 2003, Bosch Rexroth AG achieved sales of $4.4 billion (3.7 billion Euros) with 25,700 employees.
Under the brand name of Rexroth, the company offers all relevant drive, control and motion technologies: from mechanics, hydraulics and pneumatics to electronics and associated services. Rexroth has 500,000 customers in over 80 countries and is an extensive supplier of components and systems for industrial and factory automation and mobile applications.
