Abstract

Pneumatic actuators are widely used because they are lightweight and inexpensive. However, highly controllable devices for pneumatic actuators generally have large volume and low response and are heavy. We have developed the flow control valves that have highly controllable using PZT elements. These control valves can downsize the control valve with high response. Using a PZT transducer, we introduced a new mechanism of the control valve for stable continuous flow rate. In this report, we proposed a new mechanism to realize stable continuous flow with a PZT transducer. We designed prototype using a bolt-clamped Langevin transducer (BLT) and show the characteristics of the valve.
