Detect Body Temperature as People Enter Your Facility

Thermal Imaging Systems Webinar

Wednesday, July 1 at 10:00 am CDT



Re-opening following a pandemic is a new experience for all of us. Getting back to a new normal is something we can't afford to get wrong. Remaining closed prolongs the negative impact COVID-19 has already had on our businesses and the economy. On the other hand, rushing to re-open could be unsafe and disastrous to our workforce. FPE Automation has been a trusted sensor specialist for decades. FPE's experts, including presenter Tom Mathew, will take a look at thermal imaging systems being used for body temperature scanning as people enter your facility.

MAC Valves Introduces the PV12 Pulse Valve

Introducing the new PV12 Pulse Valve by MAC Valves


The family of MAC Pulse Valves has been a game-changer in the world of dust collection. The PV series patented design valve works better, is more efficient, fails less often  saves energy costs and produces a quick ROI.

• Vertical oriented bonded spool for superior reliability and low leakage
• 93 Series Pilot for consistent and high speed shifting of main valve
• Internal and external pilot configurations for use in high and low pressure applications
• Valve base accommodates 180˚ and 90˚ degree inlet/outlet orientations in 2-1/2” and 3” pipe sizes
• 175Cv


Drop-in Solution


Building on the success of the MAC Pulse Valve Series, the PV12 combines high flow and best in class performance with a form factor that is equally suited to retrofit and new machine builds. The base can accommodate inline and right angle plumbing, while the valve itself is adapter friendly.
Performance and Value

MAC Pulse Valves are known to deliver higher and more consistent pulse magnitude as compared with diaphragm valve technology. This performance, combined with the longer life and low leak characteristics of a bonded spool pulse valve, translate to lower total cost of ownership.

Available at FPE Automation.

FPE Automation's Art Gesell Wins PHD Inc. Distributor of the Month Award



Art Gesell/FPE Automation is the winner of the PHD Inc. Distributor of the Month Award for June 2020


John Ross, Vice President of North America Sales for PHD Inc. announced today that Art Gesell is the recipient of their top award for June 2020. Here is what he had to say*:

Art worked with an aerosol can producer to replace non-U.S.-made cylinders on a machine. In seeing the application firsthand and understanding that the old standard piston rod was too soft for the application, Art was able to offer that observation to the PHD Unique Solutions team. Through discussions with the customer’s industrial engineer and PHD's Unique Solutions group, Art was able to offer the customer a drop-in replacement with improved strength rod material, which was failing on the old cylinder. Delivery was also an issue previously. PHD delivered a solution in only three weeks.

PHD excels at providing productivity improvement solutions. It's possible we can offer you more than a lower cost drop-in replacement. Please reach out to FPE Automation if you'd like to take the next step.


FPE Automation's Steve Moore also receives recognition in June


Congratulations also go to Steve Moore, who made the PHD Top Performers list for his work in the medical field.

FPE Toolbox Explainer Series Webinar: Deep Learning with Cognex


Live Webinar Tuesday, June 30 at 10:00 am CDT: Deep Learning with Cognex

The future of manufacturing will be reliant on artificial intelligence (AI) for factory automation. Smart image analysis and detection of defects on complex parts and surfaces will allow manufacturers to stay competitive. The latest technology from Cognex offers a new way of approaching vision and is truly a game-changer for camera inspection. In this live webinar, FPE Automation vision expert, Pawel Baran, will begin with a look at the Cognex D-900 Smart Camera. Then, he'll take you through machine vision with In-Sight ViDi - Cognex's best-in-class deep learning vision software designed specifically for manufacturing. He will follow that up with actual application examples, show how the technology can be used on complex parts and surfaces, then take your questions.
