Parker Hannifin's Automation Group announces the release of an automated fluid-handling demo.
Parker Hannifin's Automation Group, a leading supplier of motion control and fluid handling technology, announces the release of an automated fluid-handling demo targeting the life science industry. This highly engineered system is the result of a joint development effort between Parker's Electromechanical Automation and Precision Fluidics Divisions. "Our goal was to develop a system utilizing the motion control, pneumatic and liquid components that Parker manufactures," says Richard Whipple, Marketing Communications Manager at the Precision Fluidics Division. "In addition to showcasing Parker's extensive breadth of product, we are also highlighting our system engineering capabilities, a substantial part of our business that continues to see large year-over-year growth rates."
The automated fluid-handling demo is made up of products from four of Parker's eight operating groups (Automation, Filtration, Fluid Connector and Seal). "The purpose of this demo is two-fold," says Mike Szesterniak, Product Manager at the Electromechanical Automation division. "It helps our customers visualize how they can use our products in the systems they are designing and building, and it presents Parker as a major player and thought-leader in the life science industry."
Demo System Components:
• HMI touchscreen and software (CTC Interact Xpress)
• Multi-axis motion controller (ACR9000)
• Motor amplifiers (Vix and iON)
• Miniature linear stages (MX80L, LCR and MX45)
• T-slot aluminum framing (IPS)
• Pressure controller (VSO-EP)
• Diaphragm gas and liquid pumps (CTS and LTC)
• Liquid control valves (Series 1 and LQX 12)
• In-line filter (Type ID)
• Fluoropolymer tubing (PTFE)
