Stegia has developed a product range that makes it possible to replace compressed air valves with electromechanical solutions within the factory automation business area. The product range includes our patented solutions Hypergear, Hyperdrive and Hyperstopper. All products are compact solutions where the drive electronics are integrated with the motor.
The problem and the solution
In the industry today there are large energy losses in the form of leaking compressed air systems and inefficient hydraulic systems. Compressed air is expensive and energy-intensive to produce. Leakage in compressed air systems in some cases amounts to as much as 50 percent of the amount of compressed air supplied. The work of locating any leaks in the system is often time consuming and difficult.
So it is about making big money for the industry to increase competitiveness. By removing unnecessary energy losses in the form of leaking compressed air systems and inefficient hydraulics, new opportunities are created to increase profitability.
