Air cylinder controls, a common component used to control motion, typically include airflow control valves to regulate the air pressure to produce a specified speed. Compressed air, though safe, economical and readily available, is by its nature, unstable, presenting challenges to precise control.
The Kinechek® hydraulic speed regulator used as an accessory with an air cylinder controlled system, achieves constant, precise motion. This regulator controls the air cylinder piston rod to move at a constant feed rate and requires no maintenance due to its hermetically sealed, leakproof design. The “feed rate” can be changed to suit various speed requirements by simply turning the built-in adjustment knob.
