Hydraulic systems & components


Why reinvent the wheel?

Fourth Quarter 2020 Hydraulic systems & components

Sun Hydraulics’ standard hydraulic solutions are road tested, ready and expanding. With more than 700 ready to order solutions delivering 20 different control functions across multiple settings and flow rates, Sun can help you roll out your solutions faster by starting with its own. And because it’s from Sun, you can count on high reliability and low cost of ownership.

New rapid-advance-and-feed sandwich assemblies

To expand its range of standard solutions, the company released nine new flow control rapid-advance-and-feed sandwich assemblies, rounding out an offering of ISO-03, -05, -07, and -08 sizes. This family of assemblies consists of a 2-way, 2-position solenoid directional control valve that allows full flow in the open position and diverts flow through a flow control valve in the closed position, allowing you to control the speed of your actuator. Assemblies use different flow control valves, ranging from a straight needle valve to adjustable pressure-compensated flow control valves.

Two important features of these rapid-advance-and-feed assemblies include the following:

• Maximum cylinder speed during transit.

• Precision speed control when required.

It’s just what you need to increase productivity, reducing equipment cycle times without sacrificing control and precision. 

All these assemblies are standard. If you require customisation, explain your needs to Axiom Hydraulics and a highly qualified engineer will be able to help you with an assembly made just for you.
