I have only read a little of the book, but it is very concise and informative. It is a great reference and learning tool for pneumatics
Understand, Design and Maintain Pneumatic Systems using a Total System Approach
By David De Sousa on Jul 18, 2006
As a broad and accessible guide to pneumatic technology and its current applications, this practical reference will probe to be a valuable tool for anyone working with pneumatic systems. Ranging from fundamental concepts to complete principles, this expert guide offers engineers, system designers, component manufacturers, and service engineers a "total system" approach to pneumatic systems. It will help them understand circuit design and servicing in pneumatic devices for clamping, component pressing and forming, robotics, pick-n-place, and other applications. The book covers in detail the basic requirements for pneumatic systems and pipe line layout... air compressor... pneumatic cylinders and air motors... pneumatic valves... hydropneumatics... maintenance and troubleshooting... and more. I am an Electronics Engineer, but I work as an Instrumentation, Automation and Process Safety and Control Engineer for the Process Industries. As a result I have been involved with Design and Maintenance issues in a day to day basic. This handy reference has proven most useful and time saving when in need of information to solve problems with pneumatic final control elements in the field.
