For more than 40 years we have been developing and producing in Germany with 200 highly qualified employees innovative solenoid valves and valve manifolds according to customer requirements. At our site in Erligheim (nearby Stuttgart) we manufacture everything from one single piece over serial production up to mass production. Hereby we also create all necessary manufacturing and testing devices in house. This unique know how enables us to develop cost efficient high-tech solutions, which create a real competitive advantage for our customers. It is therefore no coincidence that our customers are global market leaders of the Medical Technology, Automotive, Industrial, Pneumatics, Aeronautics and last but not least Drinking Water industries.
Our medium-sized company stands for stability and long-term growth. This has been achieved by consistent orientation towards our customers, high innovative strength and maximum product quality. Our broad range of products – from solenoid valves through electronic valves and intelligent pneumatics – is used in all sorts of applications in almost all branches all over the world. Approx. 180 employees develop and produce our products at our facilities near Ludwigsburg in an unusual architectural environment. For more than 20 years now we have regarded modern architecture with all its fascinating possibilities as an important marketing factor, and not least also as a motor for the continual optimisation of our processes.
Instead of having a plunger which moves through a coil, Spider® -Valves have a flat armature that is pulled against the magnetic yoke in the energized position. The flat armature is fastened together with a leaf spring that presses the integrated sealing element against the valve seat in the de-energized position.
We have brought all our competencies to embed all the key features of our Spider technology in a new proportional valves series: the Spider μProp®. Already successful used in Respiratory, Fuel cell systems or in electronic Flow Regulators, the Spider μProp® may be controlled using DC current or PWM in open or closed loop control.
This valve combines the advantages of the Spider-μProp® technology with the benefits of a pressure balanced valve. Due to its large orifice, high flow rates are possible. Furthermore, the valve is distinguished by a high reproducibility of the lift-off point. The electrical power consumption lies thereby in the lowest range of the Plate Armature Technology. The compact design of the valve provides a variety of assembly options for different areas of application.
