The Hoerbiger-Origa oscillating valve offers a low-cost solution for cylinders that need to continuously reciprocate. This standard oscillating valve has been applied to a wide variety of applications, including shaking, wiping, feeding, hammering, plunging, scraping, winding, raking, diverting, spraying, cleaning and dipping. Also, the valve is newly available in an electrically actuated version. The new design combines the advantages of a standard solenoid valve with the unique features and benefits of the original oscillating valve. The outlet ports of the valve are alternately supplied with air for as long as an electrical signal is present at the solenoid coil. When the electrical signal is interrupted, the cylinder will complete its cycle and will return to its home position. Since the cylinder always starts from a defined starting position, the oscillating valve can now be used for applications that require greater control over the reciprocating cycle.
