Highly accurate pressure regulation
Festo has developed a new range of piezo valve based pressure regulators that deliver smooth, precise pressure control and metering suitable for a wide range of applications. Originally, the characteristics of piezo valves made them ideal for medical applications, as Paul Kendall, MedLab sector specialist for Festo UK explains: “Piezo valve technology has low energy consumption, does not generate heat and is silent in operation; so that it won’t disturb patients under treatment. Critically, the technology is also non-magnetic and so will not interfere with any other medical equipment.”
Festo’s VEAA and VEAB family of regulators mean these properties can also be applied to precision industrial applications, such as small part assembly, printing and electronics production. Examples include pressure over liquid for precision dispensing, controlling the contact pressure applied by pneumatic actuators and low-pressure regulation for wafer production.
