Jet Pipe vs Nozzle Flapper from ServoConALPHA.
ServoCon ALPHA has completely redesigned the website to make it more
helpful to provide you with the information you need to keep your fluid
power systems operating effectively.
Design Department Changes
We have upgraded our design software from AutoCad to a new parametric
modeler. ServoCon has added several design seats of a parametric modeling
software, and G-code software to offer the shortest possible delivery
of a new part or assembly used in your systems and for our new product
Demand has required that ServoCon ALPHA become more independent. The qualified
machine shops used in the late 1980's were unable to supply parts in a
timely fashion necessary to meet tight schedules demanded by our customers.
In 1999 ServoCon ALPHA decided to send several designers to a local community
college under a technical training grant from the state of Virginia to
learn parametric modeling. This training included the application of the
parts that were modeled through G-code software which generates the code
to make the parts on the latest equipment available. ServoCon ALPHA has
added several new automatic milling machines and lathes with live tooling
and 4th axis capability to manufacture fluid power products.
After evaluating several packages including AutoCAD Inventor6 and Mechanical
Desktop which had been used at ServoCon for many years, we discovered
that this new 3D mechanical design software is far superior. Predictable
behavior when constraining sketches, three-file architecture, dynamic
rotation, easy movement of part files from one assembly to another by
dragging and dropping, dissolving and forming subassemblies, and Visual
Basic applications were some of the reasons we chose the new software.
The software has meant the difference between being able to complete
project and canceling the project because of the problems encountered
and the limitations of the previous software we used. We currently
very pleased with this new software technology and will continue to use
it and the new products advancements it brings. This new software
shortened the design cycle by 20%, saved thousands of dollars in development
costs, and reduced drafting time by 50%. It allows us to complete
faster with fewer resources.
New Coatings Production Area
ServoCon ALPHA has added a new stripping, coating and painting facility
which increases our production of new and remanufactured parts that are
coated with the new very hard and durable coatings. These coatings are
compatible with the use of corrosive fluids that are used by our customers,
and will stand up under industrial environments better than the coatings
of the past.
We have recently expanded our facility and are now capable of fully manufacturing larger control pacs and cylinders. Our new automated machines are capable of providing and even faster turn around than before. Some of the largest in the industry, the lathes and milling machines are polygonal multi-axis drill, cut, and shape everything from cylinder blocks and shafts to seals and rings. Saving you time and money by doing these things in house, we are professionals keeping you moving.
