HARTING is once again showcasing and presenting a raft of new products at Hannover Messe 2017. Among these is the Han Pneumatic Module Metal, a new pneumatic module developed in order to meet the increased demands on interfaces in flexible manufacturing. The advantage for the customer: it also uses robust and long-lasting metal contacts and can be connected and disconnected at least 10,000. at least 10,000 mating cycles. The new module offers users the advantage of using compressed air, even in production equipment that has to be converted frequently– e.g. in assembly plants, processing cells or production modules for loading and unloading machines.
The new interface is distinguished by push-in fittings that operate on the push-pull principle and its ability to be used use at high operating pressures of up to 10 bar (previously 8 bar). This translates into a significant increase in the types pneumatic hoses that can be used while also extending the possible applications for the entire low pressure area. The Han® Pneumatic Module Metal is one of the highlights at the HANNOVER MESSE industrial trade fair.
