Dear Reader,
The slow movement, in very basic terms, is about attention and nurturing. It is not about doing things slowly but about finding the right speed with which to do something in a way that values quality over quantity.

In an automation context, as well as in life, it is important to find the right speed. That is why this month we present 2 series of speed controllers for getting your cylinder to work at the required cadence. Both solutions are designed to adjust and control the speed in a fast and a simple way. No more misadjustments, no more difficulties with control.

What about slowing down together?

AS & AS-FS Series - Speed Controllers

Control the speed of your cylinder. Easier. Faster

        This month we present our range of push-lock type speed controllers: one with window indicator (AS-FS Series) and the other one without (AS Series). Both series available in elbow, universal and in-line.
  • Ease the assembly and maintenance - Large push-lock type handle that facilitates the adjustment and locking
  • Speed up the flow setting and control - Numerical indication window with 4 selectable orientations
  • Use it as a single unit or integrated in a manifold (in-line type only)
  • Improve your process quality - high adjustment reproducibility

        AS / AS-FS Series is the ideal solution for any application where controlling the speed of the cylinder is critical. For example when the speed needs to be adjusted depending on the size and materials that are handled.
