ROSS CONTROLS® Introduces New MD3TM Modular Filter, Regulator and Lubricator Line

These products offer flexibility and broader application abilities

(TROY, MI) - ROSS announces the introduction of the MD3TM line, the latest addition to its filter, regulator and lubricator family. With a compact, modular design and improved flow rates, these products offer flexibility and broader application abilities.

The MD3TM family consists of:

*General purpose filters- 5 or 40 micron filtering elements and superior free water removal (up to 98% efficiency).

*Coalescing filters- 0.3 or 0.01 micron filtering elements, 99.98% free oil particulate removal and 0.3 micron (and up) solid contaminant removal.

*Oil vapor removal (adsorbing) filters- removes all vapor that a coalescing filter leaves behind.

*General purpose regulators- diaphragm type with modular or in-line mounting capability.

* Modular lubricators- lubricates downstream mechanisms by introducing atomized oil into the airline.

*Integrated filter/regulator combination- filter and regulator conveniently packaged together to reduce procurement and installation time.

All MD3™ models come in 1/4, 3/8 and 1/2 port sizes with NPTF port threads (or optional BSPP threads). Unique features include convenient locating tabs on the filter and lubricators bowls for tightening accuracy and industry-leading inlet pressure of up to 250 psi on the metal bowl options.

ROSS also offers handy preassembled units such as the Modular Clean Air package with a filter, coalescing filter, and adsorbing filter for applications requiring strictly controlled airline purity. Other packages such as the integral filter/regulator plus lubricator or standard filter, regulator, lubricator combination also offer ease of installation.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
