A powerful storm system known as a Derecho occurred Monday afternoon over a large portion of east central Iowa. Cedar Rapids was hit particularly hard with sustained winds reaching 110 mph in some locations.

Our manufacturing and repair facility at EHA (Electro-Hydraulic Automation) had a portion of its roof torn off during the storm causing considerable rain and debris to enter the building.

A big thanks to all those employees (who were able) that came in on Tuesday to help with cleanup and parts & inventory reorg. We are getting back to normal but waiting for the rest of the city to “catch up” as utilities, fuel, and wide spread cleanup continues.

Thanks to all customers for your patience. We are now back online and able to support all our facilities.

About the Pascal Society

The Pascal Society is the annual giving society of the NFPA Education and Technology Foundation—a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, charitable organization dedicated to meeting the workforce development needs of the U.S. fluid power industry.

Named after Blaise Pascal, the French mathematician, physicist, and inventor whose famous law describes fluid power’s force multiplier effect, the Pascal Society seeks to create a similar multiplier effect for the fluid power industry.

By combining the financial and volunteer contributions of many individuals into one concerted effort, The Pascal Society will develop the resources, tools, and people needed to tackle our difficult workforce development challenge.

Learn how the Pascal Society benefits those who have chosen a career path in the Fluid Power Industry.

Why reinvent the wheel?

Sun’s standard solutions are road tested, ready and expanding. With more than 700 ready-to-order solutions delivering 20 different control functions across multiple settings and flow rates, Sun can help you roll out your solutions faster by starting with ours. And because it’s from Sun, you can count on high reliability and low cost of ownership.

To expand our standard solutions, Sun has released nine new flow control rapid-advance-and-feed sandwich assemblies, rounding out an offering of ISO-03, -05, -07, and -08 sizes. This family of assemblies consists of a 2-way, 2-position solenoid directional control valve that allows full flow in the open position and diverts flow through a flow control valve in the closed position, allowing you to control the speed of your actuator. Assemblies use different flow control valves, ranging from a straight needle valve to adjustable pressure-compensated flow control valves.
