Windflow Technology's subsidiary Wind Blades Ltd in Auckland's East Tamaki manufactures wind blades for the company's innovative twin-blade Windflow 500 wind turbine. In a part of the manufacturing process Wind Blades required a Pneumatic Two-Hand, No-Tie-Down (THNTD) control circuit to operate clamp cylinders on a veneer press.

A two-hand no-tie-down control is a device which requires an operator to have both hands on the control in order to activate a cylinder. If an operator ties one button down and attempts to operate the control with one hand on the other button the control will not give an output signal helping to ensure that the operator’s hands are not in a position to be injured by the machine as the cylinders are in motion.

By using Clippard Minimatics Acrylic Circuit Board & Modular Pneumatic Valve components Wind Blades were easilyable to install a compact and highly efficient pneumatic THNTD control system to safe guard the press operator. Many pneumatic valving systems require a considerable amount of piping, tubing and fittings to complete the necessary circuitry whereas Clippards versatile Pneumatic Circuit Boards and Modular valves largely eliminate these issues.

Available in a variety of directional, flow, pressure and special control valves - each in a valve body designed to mount and link together with a simple piping system. The piping system eases assembly and plumbing, resulting in reduced labour costs, errors in installation, and the potential for plumbing leakage. In addition, multiple valve elements can be contained in a single body; providing incredible flexibility and variety to accomplish a myriad of control challenges. The Minimatic Circuit Boards & Modular Valves are the supreme Plug and Play devices for pneumatic applications.
