The Volution Solves Flowability Problems

The Volution Powder Flow Tester (VFT) measures the flow properties and bulk characteristics of powders and bulk solids. The system uses an annular shear cell to measure a powder’s response to consolidating pressure using the yield locus technique. This allows the system to measure the cohesion and angle of internal friction of the material as well as its unconfined yield strength. The system also measures wall friction and compressibility. Flow functions can be measured by testing the materials at different pressures.

Motion Control Products Ltd: Electric actuators vs. pneumatic cylinders…

Electric actuators vs. pneumatic cylinders:

A comparison based on total cost of ownership

Tolomatic electric actuators are distributed in the UK and Ireland by Motion Control Products Ltd. please click here to visit our website for the product ranges and information.

 Pneumatic cylinder actuators, known for their low initial cost and durability, have been a staple in factory automation equipment for decades. They are simple, easy to maintain and provide reasonable control over machine movements in industrial plants. However, since the developmentof more flexible, precise and reliable electric actuators, there has been an ongoing debate over which technology offers the best overall solution for industrial plant optimization. The case for switching to electric actuators has focused on the ability of electric actuators to achieve more precise control of motion (position, speed, acceleration and force), along with providing superior accuracy and repeatability.
