When operating heavy equipment such as tractors or cranes, the power necessary for moving such weight is made possible through the use of hydraulic pumps. With a hydraulic pump, oil and fluids may be forced through hydraulic chambers or a hydraulic engine to create mechanical power. As a result, a hydraulic machine can lift, lower, open, close, and turn machine segments with power that would be impossible to achieve through human strength alone.

In hydraulic systems, accumulators serve as pressure vessels that are capable of storing and releasing energy within the system as needed, similar in operation to battery chargers. Hydro-pneumatic accumulators are a specific type, taking advantage of compressible nitrogen for the means of storing pressurized fluids. Commonly found in the global fluid power industry, hydro-pneumatic accumulators may serve pulsation dampeners, emergency power sources, thermal expansion, transfer barriers, prefills, noise attenuation, leakage compensators, dispensers, and much more. In general, there are various designs for maintaining the separation of gases and fluids, the primary types being bladder accumulators, diaphragm accumulators, piston accumulators, and float accumulators.

Essential for any machinery powered by a motor, motor mounts, also known as engine mounts, are used to connect a motor to a chassis. Maximizing shock absorption, sound absorption, and limiting vibrations experienced by an engine system during operation, differing types of motor mounts are designed to give every engine the security it needs. To familiarize yourself with the various types of engine mounts, we will discuss what common options are available, their pros, and cons.

Milling refers to the process of removing materials from a workpiece with the use of rotary cutters, and it may be conducted with a wide range of machinery. In modern applications, computer numerical control (CNC) systems are regularly used to carry out such operations, taking advantage of automation to efficiently and accurately achieve desired results. CNC milling relies on CNC machine types to automate rotary cutters for completing a piece, also often being capable of switching out tools to minimize the need for manpower. With their method of operations, CNC milling can be considered the opposite of CNC turning. In this blog, we will discuss the common types of milling cutter equipment and tools that are commonly used in manufacturing processes, providing a brief explanation of each so that you may understand their functionalities.

Industrial valves come in a wide range of designs to fit various handling needs. Though they are commonplace for residential and home use, irrigation, HVAC systems, and various other processes, industrial valves are ideal for systems that require a higher threshold for pressure demand. Commonly composed of a valve body, valve bonnet, valve actuator, and valve trim, these parts work together to create what is commonly known as a valve.

A pneumatic system is a system that uses compressed air to transmit and control energy. Pneumatic systems are used in a broad range of industries, where they rely on a constant supply of compressed air to function. In this blog, we will discuss the most common pneumatic system components and their function.

Hydraulic accumulators, most simply put, are energy storage devices. They are similar to rechargeable batteries within electrical systems, except that they store and discharge energy in the form of pressurized fluid. The accumulator itself is a pressure vessel that holds hydraulic fluid and a compressible gas, most commonly nitrogen. The shell or housing of the accumulator is made from materials such as steel, stainless steel, aluminum, titanium, and fiber-reinforced composites. Within the device a flexible barrier, such as a piston or rubber bladder, separating the oil from the gas.

Filters are components that are regularly implemented within vehicles for their protection. As fibrous mesh materials that are installed within various assemblies, automotive filters function to capture particles of matter such as dirt or sand so that they are removed from systems before they cause corrosion or damage. Due to the high importance that automotive filters serve for the overall health of an automobile, it can be useful to be aware of the most common types that may be found within them.

When machining metals for various industries and applications, cutting tools serve as one of the most crucial aspects of the process. While metal cutting tools have existed for ages, improvements to such equipment pieces have allowed us to achieve high-grade production like never before. Whether one is cutting, welding, drilling, profiling, bending, or milling a metal piece, some type of metal cutting tool will be required for machining. In this blog, we will discuss some of the common types of cutting tools and how they are used, allowing you to best determine what you need for your operations.
