IMI Norgren’s valve island configurator intuitive, flexible and easy to use

IMI Norgren’s valve island configurator: flexible step by step process that is easy navigate for any user regardless of experience.

IMI Precision Engineering, world-leader in fluid and motion control, introduces IMI Norgren’s brand new Valve Island Configurator, designed to help create your unique product, making product selection simple and straightforward. It is possible to choose each part of the component and then specify the exact configuration required using simple selection lists.
The configurator enables quick specification of the valve island to exactly meet each and every  requirements and allows live visualisation of your configuration thanks to downloadable 2D and 3D cad files. It is possible to download the chosen configuration in the customer’s native CAD format, since the IMI Norgren Valves Islands Configurator supports 60+ native CAD formats including AutoCAD, SolidWorks, Pro/Engineer, NX and Catia.

Unlimited ability

VS series Valve Islands are unique in offering two spool technologies. To maximize the speed of your pneumatic system, use our softseal spool to achieve enhanced flow rates. For extended life, our glandless spool and sleeve delivers hundreds of millions of trouble-free cycles, or incorporate both spool technologies within the same valve manifold to optimise the performance of your machine. The IMI Norgren VS Series gives you the versatility to choose the features you need with the modularity to easily expand and add accessories. By combining flexibility and Swiss-engineered quality, IMI Norgren has created a no-compromise valve range with unlimited ability.
