Filper Selects Clippard for Selective Peach Pitter


Application Story Published by Clippard, November, 1980

Canned cling peaches are the world’s largest processed fruit crop, and the majority of the world’s peaches are processed on two very unique, patented pieces of equipment—the “Selective” Clean Cling Peach Pitter, and the Standard Cling Peach Pitter, manufactured by Filper Corporation, Reno, Nevada, a division of Di Giorgio Corporation.

Clippard EV Valves Help Interface Brain with Artificial Leg


Application Story Published by Clippard, May, 1983

An artificial leg that moves on command from the brain of the user is now a reality thanks in part to electronic/pneumatic interface valves from Clippard Instrument Laboratory.

For the last three years, a team of bioengineers, computer scientists and physicians at the Rehabilitation Hospital in Philadelphia have been designing this myoelecric prosthesis. It uses min-computers and electrodes to transmit the body’s natural electrical signals to the EV valves that actuate leg motion.

Clippard Products Used in Slicing HoneyBaked Hams


Spiral slicing is a method of cutting the ham around the bone so that all of the slices remain in place on the bone. Any lengthwise cut releases the uniformly thick slices for serving. Clippard cylinders and valves hold the pork precisely in place for this spinning process.

Clippard Helps Keep Your Vehicle Clean


Clippard's Circuit Boards and R-701 Modular Valves are used in many commercial car washes to control the output of soap.

Picture Perfect


Fletcher-Terry offers pneumatic mat cutting systems which utilize Clippard stainless steel cylinders to hold the mat board firmly in place throughout the cut. When precision really matters—Count on Clippard!

Lion (or Lying) Breath!


Lion Labs, based in the United Kingdom, makes a breathalyzer system which is a portable device that measures the alcohol content in the breath of a suspected violator. Lion Labs uses Clippard low pressure switches to sense and measure the volume of air exhaled to ensure the breath is strong enough to be legally tested.

Vlad, The Impaler


Did you know that Clippard products are used in the battlebot "Vlad, The Impaler"?

Coffee at Clippard


To prevent burning of the coffee pots at Clippard’s offices, a simple control system was designed which automatically shuts the machines off after a specific amount of time! We just have too many other things to worry about than turning off the coffee pot!

Man Your Stations!


In R/C (radio controlled) combat, hobbyists from around the world build, fight and sink 1/144 scale model warships. Ships are armed with CO-powered cannons that blast steel ball bearings at their enemies. Water pumps are used to control battle damage. As long as you can pump any incoming water out of your vessel, you should stay afloat.

Oil Pump


The Welker Oil Injection Pump was introduced in late 1995, and was designed to provide an automated lubrication system for turbine meter bearings. For decades, the lubrication of bearings was a labor intensive procedure. Now with the OIP system, bearings are automatically lubricated evenly and consistently, maintenance time is reduced, bearing life is increased, and accuracy is more easily maintained.

Clippard EC Series valves provide a pneumatic actuation between 15 and 100 psig.
