Ross Controls Announces New and Improved Pneumatic Counterbalance

ROSS Controls, Troy MI, introduces a new and improved 1-1/4” pneumatic automatic counterbalance for large mechanical stamping presses.

This new ROSS automatic counterbalance system can be integrated with your existing press controls to set and maintain the correct pressure for each die set, improving parts quality and extending the life of the press. This latest solution for the Metalforming Press Industry meets all ANSI B11.1 requirements and is available in a variety of port threads, voltages and electrical connections.


Properly set counterbalance pressures on each production run will eliminate gear and bearing clearances to reduce force loading, wear and motor loads. Two selectable modes of operation, manual or automatic using 2-way poppet internals, will provide positive shifting even in the most demanding low flow applications. All solenoids and main valve internals are interchangeable and can be serviced from the top for ease of maintenance and maximum flexibility.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
