MC Festos New Const Effective One Way Flow Valve 1 400

Festo’s new manually adjustable VFOE meets all the criteria users are seeking in a one-way flow control valve for either supply or exhaust air in standard industrial applications. With its compact, polymer body design, the VFOE is both smaller and up to 50% lighter than comparable metal-bodied flow control valves. That polymer difference and customized manufacturing allow Festo to offer VFOE as a low-cost option which doesn’t sacrifice Festo’s renowned quality. The company also has added the VFOE to its core range of products, assuring it is always in stock at Festo service centers around the world for fast delivery. Low cost, high quality and ready availability makes the VFOE the best value option on the market.

One-way flow control valves enable adjustable control of the speed at which a pneumatic actuator will extend or retract for any application.

VFOE’s compact size makes it ideal for installing into tight spaces. Its 360º swivel joint simplifies alignment with tubing during installation. Thanks to the integrated push-to-lock operating, three steps is all it takes for quick, reliable and secure adjustments. The colour-coded rotary knob makes it quick and easy to set the flow control valve for incoming air or exhausting air.

The VFOE pairs perfectly with Festo’s PUN-H polyurethane tubing. In combination with a Festo pneumatic drive, this duo gives users everything they need to adapt the cylinder’s speed to specific applications requirements. And VFOE is offered in many combinations of thread sizes and tubing diameters.

DCS HELUKABEL Critical Keys to Selecting Right Cable Manufacturer 1 400

As we began 2022, global material shortages and rapidly increasing costs have now become the new reality. The types of materials that have suddenly become difficult to procure are wide-ranging and include computer chips for automotive manufacturing, wood for new construction, and electrical components – just to name a few.

These shortages have created great uncertainty, which is reflected in a recent poll of contractors in the U.S. by the Chamber of Commerce. They reported:

  • •83% are experiencing product delays.
  • •71% are struggling to meet schedule requirements.
  • •68% are experiencing delays expected into 2023.
  • •58% are putting in higher bids on projects.
  • •53% are saying major project shutdowns/delays are a top concern.
  • •41% are saying material shortages continue.
  • •39% are turning down work opportunities.

One of the major material components that affect the cost and availability of wire and cable is copper. This widely used metal, which traditionally has been a volatile commodity, has been steadily increasing in price, which is due to several supply and demand issues.

Omron Whitepaper - MVRC: Mark, Verify, Read and Communicate

Utopias are common in fiction, from Plato’s The Republic to The Federation in Star Trek. For manufacturers, a world without unplanned downtime would be the perfect utopia. The question is, is abolishing unplanned downtime a far-fetched dream, or is it closer than we think? Here, Jonathan Wilkins, marketing director of obsolete industrial equipment supplier, EU Automation shares his vision for a downtime free age.

According to research by Oneserve, machine downtime is costing British manufacturers over £180 billion a year. Unplanned downtime halts production, but can also lead to wasted raw materials or damage to the system itself – amplifying the cost beyond loss of production. Further research conducted by GE Digital found that 70 per cent of companies lack full awareness of when equipment is due for maintenance, upgrade or repair..
