Tires on rims may weigh as much as 33,000 lb., which requires heavy lifting capacity combined with precise control. Servicing one machine with conventional tire-handling equipment can take up three maintenance bays, owing to its bulk.</div> <p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Manifolds & HICs Fri, 11 Dec 2015 17:25:00 +0000 35261 at Cartridge valves add flexibility to excavators <div class="node-body article-body"><p> Engcon AB, Str&ouml;msund, Sweden, is the world&rsquo;s leading manufacturer of tilt rotators &mdash; attachments that are installed between an excavator&rsquo;s boom and bucket to continuous 360&deg; rotation and &plusmn;40&deg; lateral pivoting of the bucket or other end tool. Engcon&rsquo;s tilt rotators are equipped with a hydraulic motor for rotation and double-acting cylinders for optimized tilting force and even load distribution. Engcon&acute;s tilt rotators can be used on most existing excavators and backhoe loaders within a weight range of 11&frasl;2 to 32 tons.</p></div> <p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Construction Mining Hydraulic Valves Manifolds & HICs Thu, 13 Jun 2013 17:41:00 +0000 21781 at Tips and trends in manifold circuits <div class="field-byline"> Yudi Raina, VEST Inc. </div> <div class="field-deck"> Hydraulic integrated circuit design benefits from the modularity inherent with slip-in and screw-in cartridge valves. </div> <div class="node-body article-body"><p> Hydraulic systems a generation ago featured valves that were either threaded for pipe and tube mount, or used a flat gasket interface for sub-plate mounting.

That capacity makes them very economical for long-distance freight transfer. But until the 1950s, moving rail cars very short distances &mdash; such as from one track or train to another &mdash; was costly and time consuming. The procedure required a conventional switching locomotive, an engineer to operate it, and a switchman to assist. Trackmobile takes advantage of electrohydraulic cartridge valve manifolds and controls to provide stable transfer for railroad car movers.</div> <p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Controls & Instrumentation Rail, Truck & Bus Manifolds & HICs Thu, 07 Jun 2012 19:55:00 +0000 13941 at Expandable valve manifolds <div class="node-body article-body">VS manifolding valve product range improves design, maintenance and performance of pneumatic systems in industrial machines, by allowing expansion of the manifold in the field without tearing it apart or replacing it.
