Pneumatic technology actually serves many very useful functions in our world. For one, it is extremely useful in the area of food packaging.
The August issue of Hydraulics & Pneumatics features a short article on the handling food packaging trays to assure that the proper mixture of air is contained within the packaging for the freshness of the foods. This type of application is idea for compressed air technology because of the precision operation of the actuators and the cleanliness of the machinery.
We continue to promote the ideal suitability of pneumatic technology in every issue of Hydraulics & Pneumatics. We invite any designer or user of pneumatics to send us a lead on an application story.
