  • 12 Advantages of Firestone Marsh Mellow Springs

    Firestone Marshmellow Springs Vibration Isolators Firestone Marshmellow Springs Vibration Isolators

    Firestone Marsh Mellow Vibration Isolation Springs have many advantages over other types of vibration isolators.  Here's why:

    1. Constant Vibration Isolation with Changing Loads
    The variable spring rate allows for a nearly constant natural frequency with changing loads. This results in consistent vibration isolation with variable loading.

    2. High Load Carrying Capacity
    Due to the Marsh Mellow spring’s greater deflection capabilities and load carrying influences of the fabric reinforcement, it can carry a greater load when compared to an all rubber part of the same modulus and dimensions.

    3. Excellent Vibration Isolation
    Low natural frequencies provide excellent isolation of forced frequencies in the range of 800-1200 cycles per minute (13-20Hz).

    4. Lateral Vibration Isolation
    The lateral spring rate of a Marsh Mellow spring can be less than the vertical spring rate, resulting in a lower lateral natural frequency. Marsh Mellow springs provide better vibration isolation in all degrees of freedom.

    Mitsubishi VFDsVFD (Variable Frequency Drives)

    VFD, or variable frequency drive, can be used in a wide variety of applications, from small kitchen appliances to large compressors or mill drives. These drives are adjustable - speed. They control the AC motor speed as well as the torque by varying both the motor input frequency as well as the voltage. They offer opportunities for energy savings, and as technology as continued to improve, their cost and size have been reduced while their performance has improved, making them more feasible for a greater portion of the population on a much wider scale.


    Motion Controllers

    Introducing the Motion Controller Q Series, meeting the needs for higher performance and smaller size to satisfy high-speed motion control applications! Compatible with the Q Series PLC (Platform), which incorporates Multiple CPU technology, the Motion CPU and PLC CPU are selectable and work in parallel to provide greater flexibility and unmatched performance. A large-scale control system (Up to 96 axes per system) can be created using an extremely compact package as Q Series PLC.


    Servo Motors

    Mitsubishi Servo Motors are made to high standards and offer a wide range of power, speed and inertia ratings providing a motor for all applications. Ranging from 50W through to 55kW and with specialist type motors available (flat "pancake"motors) the new Super Series Servo Motors complete the line-up of electrical equipment offered by Mitsubishi Electric

    Variable Frequency Drives

    Since over 65% of electrical energy used industrially/commercially is utilized by motors, it’s no wonder that variable frequency drives (VFDs) are becoming more popular, especially since they can make motors run much more efficiently. Investing in a variable frequency drive (a.k.a. adjustable frequency/speed, AC, or micro drives) is one viable, proactive option.

    VFDs are used in a wide variety of applications these days, from small appliances to compressors and huge mill drives used in the mining industry. They are used where energy consumption and efficiency is an important consideration. An example of this is in an application where a variable-torque pump or centrifugal fan is in use, especially where the torque and power of the load vary with the cube and square, respectively, of the motor’s speed.

    If your facility uses AC (alternating current) and you have motors that run at variable speeds and you control them mechanically or have them run at full load; you need to install variable frequency drives. Frequently, variable frequency drives are called VFDs or inverters. They save money on electric costs and wear and tear on your motors.

    Another advantage to using variable frequency drives is the lack of current surge during start-up, which further reduces electricity consumption and surge penalties imposed by power companies.

    In addition to saving energy, VFDs also reduce stress on power supplies and reduce motor wear, resulting in long-term savings on maintenance and repair.

    Common Uses for Variable Frequency Drives Include:

    • HVAC Systems
    • Fan Systems
    • Pump Systems
    • Escalators
    • Compressors
    • Extruders
    • Conveyors
    • Mixers

  • Introducing Ace Shock Absorbers

    Ace Shock AbsorbersAce Shock Absorbers

    ACE is the World leader in deceleration technology. Ace shock absorbers perform a range of functions including preventing impact damage, improving product performance, providing longer life and reliability, and decelerating loads, enabling mechanical devices to operate smoothly and efficiently. Ace Shock Absorbers encompass new innovations including the award winning SC2 Heavyweight Series and the adjustable and self-compensating industrial shock absorber models. This can benefit multiple industries including steel, material handling, robotics, automotive, medical and many more.  ACE Shock absorbers are made in the USA and every shock is tested 100% before shipping.

    ACE Miniature Shock Absorbers are self-contained hydraulic units. The MC 5 to MC 75 model range has a very short overall length and low return force. Its small size allows for high energy absorption in confined spaces, while the wide effective weight ranges accommodate a variety of load conditions. With threaded outer bodies and multiple accessories, MC models can be mounted in numerous configurations.

    ACE’s award winning SC2 300 and SC2 650 Heavyweight Series Shock Absorbers deliver up to 950% of the effective weight capacity and 280% of the energy absorption capability of standard models. These durable units are ideal for decelerating heavy weights moving at low velocities. The Heavyweight Series design combines the piston and the inner tube into a single component, the piston tube. It acts as both the pressure creating and pressure controlling device.  ACE’s SC2 300 and SC2 650 Heavyweight Series Shock Absorbers offer expanded effective weight ranges and dramatic increases in energy absorption capability, for handling a wider range of applications.  These revolutionary shock absorbers provide dual performance benefits. They offer soft contact deceleration where initial impact reaction forces are very low with the advantages of self compensation to cope with changing input energy conditions without adjustment.

    ACE MA Series miniature shock absorbers offer a compact design with true linear deceleration, and are adjustable over a wide range of conditions. If your preference is a fully adjustable shock absorber rather than a self-compensating model on your application, then the MA Series provides a directly interchangeable alternative.

  • Quick Exhaust Valve Spotlight

    Quick Exhaust Valve

    Quick Exhaust ValveThese Super quick exhaust valves feature a special molded shuttle designed especially for quick response, high flow and long cycle life.  The universal design of the Quick Exhaust Valve allows it to be used as a valve, a shuttle valve, or plug the exhaust port and use it as a check valve.  With the molded shuttle design, the Super Quick Exhaust Valve have an operating range as low as 1 psi to 150 psi.

    These valves are used across all industries wherever fast pneumatic cylinder stroking is required.  Some industries where quick exhaust valves are used include: wood/lumber, tire, food packaging, paper finishing, material handling & conveying, stamping and die-cutting.

    These valves are applied to allow cylinders to exhaust air at the cylinder port instead of having the air travel all the way back through the supply tubing to the directional valve to exhaust there.  These valves can also be used as a shuttle valve, the “or” logic function, automatically selecting the higher of two input pressures to produce an output.

    We also offer 316 stainless and electrically operated (including hazardous locations) quick exhaust valves from Versa.
