ValvTechnologies: VirtualValv Support

ValvTechnologies VirtualValv SupportValvTechnologies introduces VirtualValv Support, an on-demand augmented reality tool to provide remote installation, maintenance support service, anytime, anywhere.

The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have placed significant limitations on in-person interaction. To overcome this, ValvTechnologies has implemented an innovative software tool for live remote service assistance. VirtualValv Support connects a certified ValvTechnologies’ service technician with on-site, field personnel to interact in real-time, communicating using hand gestures and augmented 3D scans.

VirtualValv Support was recently deployed for a planned maintenance outage at a powerplant in Malaysia. The outage was originally scheduled to be conducted by its service team based in Chennai India, however, as air travel had been restricted, ValvTechnologies had to adapt to meet its customer’s needs. As a result, the VirtualValv Support system was sent to Malaysia and programmed with all the necessary procedures for full ERV overhaul and the service team in India oversaw the repairs remotely to ensure the work was done to standards.

Emerson: AVENTICS TM5 TaskMaster Aluminum Cylinder

Emerson Aventics Task Master CylinderMachine builders and their end-user manufacturers can increase machine speeds and reliability with the new AVENTICS TM5 TaskMaster aluminum cylinder from Emerson. The National Fluid Power Association (NFPA)-compatible pneumatic cylinder reduces cost, energy consumption, equipment wear and downtime.

With its rugged aluminum body construction and a steel piston rod, the TM5 TaskMaster features Emerson’s state-of-the-art pneumatic cushioning technology that allows an ideal cushion adjustment to slow down the piston to a stop by the time it reaches the endcap. Ideal cushioning reduces the time it takes the cylinder to complete a stroke, allowing an improvement in efficiency that significantly boosts machine speed and lowers endcap hammer. Ideal cushioning also reduces cycle time and enables the TM5 cylinders to carry higher loads without sacrificing cylinder performance.

The cylinder incurs less stress and there is no end-of-stroke bounce or end-cap slamming, which is a main source of cylinder wear, slowness and noise. Ideal cushioning thus lengthens cylinder operating life and reduces downtime related to cylinder failure. Additionally, it reduces machine noise and vibration while reducing energy consumption.
