Overview

Vention has partnered with SMC, an industry leader in pneumatics, to bring you a series of pneumatic components. These components include an air preparation station complete with a pressure regulator, air filter and manual safety release valve, a manifold that supports up to four independent open-center valves that drive various lengths of double-acting cylinders. The entire system is controlled using Vention’s MachineMotion (CE-CL-005-0003) and IO Expander (CE-MD-001-0001).

Applications

There are several applications for the pneumatic ecosystem, including clamping and guidance systems.
