Application of Proprotion-air Electric Proportional Valve in Force Control of Press


The proportional air FCV is used to control the deceleration of the two cylinders, and a 15,000 pound platen is connected in this press force control application. Press applications are widely used in many industries and often require the use of pneumatic devices. FCV is very suitable for this process because of its simplicity and high flow capacity. When the platen is lowered, the proximity switch sends a signal to the controller, which then controls the FCV. The FCV measures air flow during the last 3 inches of the stroke to eliminate platen bounce. These presses are manufactured for food-grade processes, which makes the use of pneumatic devices more advantageous than hydraulic devices.
 
With a Cv of 19 scfm and linear position control of the needle valve, the FCV provides a smooth and consistent response to the control platen force.
