Our Innovative Solutions

Assembly & Test Application Solutions - Poppet Valves

ROSS poppet valves pop open and closed almost instantly.  Surface areas of the piston poppet, the exhaust poppet and the inlet poppet are carefully calculated to produce strong shifting and sealing forces in each direction. This results in a design, which ensures high speed, repeatability and high shifting forces.

ROSS poppet valves have positive sealing with no sliding action to prevent damage and wear. They are also self-cleaning and dirt tolerant thanks to the smallest flow-through area across the poppet’s seal and seat which produces a high-enough velocity to blow out all dirt and foreign matter. Plus, the valve is self-compensating for wear by automatically changing stroke length due to height changes in the valve seal from burnishing. These valves are designed for repeatability, high-temperature service, high speed, and high-shift consistency over the life of the valve.

ROSS® Safety Applications

Channel Select Leak Test

Using the Dale Manifold with a bench top unit allows the customer to test multiple parts at one time or to test multiple chambers in one single part.

Bypass Fill & Exhaust Leak Test

A bypass valve is used generally for two reasons: To improve cycle time by filling and exhausting with a high flow valve or as an exhaust valve that will prevent contamination such as sand in a casting from damaging the internals of the bench top unit.

Vacuum Pick & Place

Pneumatic vacuum pick & place systems are an ideal choice when moving materials from one location to another in manufacturing applications where conveyors do not provide the precision that is required.  Vacuum systems have a lower initial cost and offer other advantages including offering a greater force density, can be mounted close to the process, does not require complex software programming, and are better suited for imperfect environments.
