Our client needed a pneumatic actuator which would retrofit to an existing pushbutton beverage dispensing valve. Our design clips securely to the valve; when pressurized, the elastomer diaphragm (black disc) deflects and extends the valve button. We prototyped this actuator using SLS components assembled with threaded fasteners; the production unit uses injection-molded components assembled with ultrasonic welding.
In the design of amusement ride vehicles and track structures, passenger safety and long term structural durability is critical. CES can provide your project with design and stress analysis of critical structures. It is a relatively straightforward matter to design components to withstand known static loads. But the larger challenge is to properly design components against failure under long-term cyclic loading. Such "fatigue" failures can occur without warning, after years of service, and are often catastophic.
