Principios Ingenieriles Básicos - Circuitos de Presión

Cuando se utilizan válvulas direccionales con centro tándem o abierto en circuitos que requieren de presión piloto para accionar las válvulas, tiene que haber una manera de mantener la presión cuando las mismas están en la posición central. Uno de los métodos consiste en instalar....More

How To Reduce Noise Emission From Hydraulic Systems

The magnitude of noise radiation from an object is proportional to its area and inversely proportional to its mass. Reducing an object's surface area or increasing its mass can therefore reduce its noise radiation. For example, constructing the hydraulic reservoir from thicker plate (increase in mass) will reduce its noise radiation....More

Fluid Power Gives Robot Arms All the Right Moves

Hydraulics and pneumatics technologies are two widely accepted methods of power transmission. Hydraulics is most often used for its ability to move heavy loads with highly controlled motion. Pneumatics, ont the other hand, is more often associated with applications with lighter loads and rapid, repetitive motions....More
