A new electromagnetically actuated valve-gate cylinder reportedly delivers 110 times more accurate position control than hydraulic or pneumatic operation. Introduced at the recent Euromold show in Frankfurt, Germany, the new valve design from Plastic Engineering & Technical Services (P.E.T.S.) Inc., Auburn Hills, Mich., is actuated by neodymium rare-earth magnets, which remain cool during use. The new control system allows the valve to be closed precisely in increments, if desired.
