Exair’s aluminum 3/8 and ½ NPT Threaded Line Vac air-operated conveyors convert ordinary pipe into a powerful conveying system for parts, scrap, trim and other bulk materials. The conveyors eject a small amount of compressed air to produce a vacuum on one end with high output flows on the other. Response is instantaneous. Regulating the compressed air pressure provides control of the rate of conveyance. Applications include scrap trim removal, material conveying, part transfer, fiber tensioning, filling operations and sampling.

The vacuums’ small sizes make them ideal for fitting in the cramped spaces and tight confines of many production lines. They are designed to attach to plumbing pipe couplers, making it easy to build a complete system using ordinary pipe and fittings. These new sizes ease the moving of small parts, small quantities of material or gases, and transporting scrap or product out of small spaces.

  • Multitasking's "Big" Advantage

    As demonstrated at this Cincinnati-area shop, machines that both mill and turn shine brightest when workpieces are massive.

  • A Study Of The Steady Rest

    When the length and stiffness of a workpiece make it difficult to machine without distorting or deflecting the part, many manufacturers turn to the steady rest as a workpiece support device. This is especially true for long axles, shafts and similar parts used in automotive or heavy equipment applications, and in oil drilling components. The most common application is to support a workpiece during turning or milling and, increasingly, during secondary operations such as ID drilling, boring and producing end face bolthole patterns.

    Hummingbird takes on machining work that is too small for most shops to handle. In fact, Hummingbird tries not to handle it either. To accurately machine the tiniest parts, this shop relies on processes that are as hands-off as possible.
