Creating and testing custom solutions
Precisely developed compressors and system solutions from BOGE deliver compressed air for highest demands and any requirement. Apart from a broad array of ready-made products, BOGE offers custom solutions and customer-specific OEM products for compressed-air applications. A particularly interesting task was the development of a two-cylinder piston compressor as the drive for an electro-pneumatic main piston.
This concept involves a main piston that is driven by a piston compressor with modified valves and a defined air cushion. The air mass of the cushion is, in theory, constant. Such a system can be a high-frequency alternative for pneumatic cylinders to create a great impact on an assembly.
The differential equation of the main piston’s dynamics and the nonlinear compression with a variable volume describe a system which exceeds the possibilities of calculations with paper and pen. The development was trying to facilitate the selection of a suitable compressor and to find the optimum dimensions of the connections between the compressor and the main piston with respect to as many influencing factors as possible.
