Even though HANNOVER MESSE 2016 may seem to be centered on networking, automation and digitalization, the manufacturing industry would be nothing without the actual hands-on technology itself. And of course technical innovations play a big part in this segment, too, helping to drive progress in manufacturing independently of all the ones and zeros. A good example for this is the new ES05 valve series from Laatzen-based Aventics GmbH - classic analog engineering that is being unveiled in Hannover.
"Our customers wanted a simple, flexible and efficient standard valve tailored precisely to their application, comprising a small number of components and without fancy extras," explains Paul Cleaver, Chief Executive Officer at Aventics. The new ES05 Essential Valve System delivers exactly what customers want - a modular assembly system that gives them complete building kits to fit their needs precisely. It is almost impossible to assemble the components incorrectly, as they are all extremely easy to identify and, what's more, a single tool is all that is needed for assembly purposes. All screw connections are of the same type and are tightened with the same torque. The portfolio also includes the Essential Test Box, which can be used to test that the valves are fully functional and leak-tight.
