NOVI, MICHIGAN, U.S.A., October 6, 2011– ASCO Numatics, the world’s leading manufacturer of comprehensive fluid automation, flow control, and pneumatics solutions, announced today the expansion of its Numatics Express shipping program to include pneumatic filters, regulators, and lubricators. This addition gives Numatics the widest variety of air preparation products that are available for guaranteed 2-day shipment.
“Filters, regulators, and lubricators typically are subject to last-minute changes in the pneumatics system design process,” said Robert W. Kemple, Jr., executive vice president, sales and marketing — Americas, ASCO Numatics. “With our best-in-industry speed, Numatics makes it easy for design engineers to accommodate system revisions without disrupting development schedules.”
The new products made available through the Numatics Express program include particulate and coalescing filters, regulators, filter-regulator combination units, lubricators, solenoid soft-start valves, quick exhaust valves, shut-off valves, diverter blocks, and pressure gauges.
Numatics is the only air preparation equipment supplier to offer a unique combination filter-regulator, which incorporates a 3-micron pleated prefilter within the coalescing filter, and to ship it within 2 days. “This option eliminates the need to purchase and install both a particulate prefilter and a coalescing filter, saving time, money, and space,” said Kemple.
The quick-ship filter, regulator, and lubricator products will be particularly attractive for packaging, food and beverage, automotive, tire, and general industrial applications where rapid delivery and speed of assembly offer production cycle-time and MRO inventory reduction opportunities.
The Numatics Express program now includes guaranteed 2-day shipment of pneumatic cylinders, linear slides, pneumatic valves and mountings, filters, regulators, and lubricators, plus 3-day shipment of fully tested and assembled valve manifolds.
