Electro-pneumatic Circuit Development for a stamping device

Electro-pneumatics and Automation

Authored by Joji Parambath

This book explains the functioning of single and double solenoid valves and various electrical control components such as pushbuttons, electro-magnetic releys, limit switches, reed switches, proximity sensors, timers, preset counters, and pressure switches. Many typical single-actuator and complex multiple-actuator electro-pneumatic circuits are also developed to illustrate various applications of electro-pneumatics.

Control Task: Cylinder A extends and brings a job under the stamping cylinder B. Cylinder B then extends and stamps the job. Cylinder A can return only after cylinder B has retracted fully. An electro-pneumatic control circuit has to be developed for realizing the control task.
