|Eliminate marring, buckling and distortion.
An exclusive patented dual air valve system provides the correct clamping/feeding sequence essential in eliminating marring, buckling and distortion. One valve actuates the feed and stock clamp while the other actuates the slide block. As the valves operate in exact sequence, the material is always clamped before the slide block moves. This system allows Rapid-Air feeds to be controlled by an electric valve instead of a standard actuating valve, if desired.
Large Rapid-Air Models, Series C through LX, have dual cushion pistons that buffer shock from the back and forth travel of the slide block to smooth material flow.
There is no other air feed circuitry designed that can outperform the Rapid-Air dual valve system.
