With the latest innovations - always one step ahead
Special challenges call for special solutions, especially when electronics and fluids need to be integrated intelligently. After the successful development and introduction of our AirBoard®, Kendrion Kuhnke has taken the next step to further develop the FluidBoard®.
For the production of the FluidBoard, laminated plastic boards are bonded in a gas-tight manner by means of a special laser welding technology. By combining a wide range plastic materials, the FluidBoard can be used for just about any process media. Aggressive media in gaseous or fluid forms are great candidates for the FluidBoard, and represents a cost-effective alternative to classic manifold solutions.
By adding conductive structures, it is possible to directly integrate THT and SMD components, sensors, and many other control elements into the FluidBoard. Depending on the required functionality and technical requirements, the FluidBoard can be multifunctional to include other components, such as solenoid valves, pressure regulators, wire harnesses, circuit board components, etc. to form a comprehensive functional unit combining fluid flow and electronic control.
Besides cost advantages due to integration, the FluidBoard has the following benefits: low energy consumption, low space requirements, minimal dead-space due to the absence of hose connections and long-life due to the reliable manufaturing processing.
