EuroBlech, G.P.A. Italiana: safety valves for mechanical presses


gpaG.P.A. Italiana, set up in 1962, designs and constructs “automation units/machines” and “equipment for presses”.

At EuroBlech G.P.A presents a series of parallel flow double body solenoid valves suitable to control clutch-brake groups of mechanical presses. Since 1995 they have been certified according to the EN 692 standard (Safety of Mechanical Presses) by the German body DGUV (previously known as BG) that takes care of safety of metalworking machines.

Examined again by the same body in 2011, with the coming into force of the EN 13849 standard for the assessment of the control circuit safety, they obtained the certification of the highest levels of safety (Category 4) and reliability (Performance Level “e”).

  • Type: 3 way / 2 position Normally Closed double body solenoid valves.
  • Cycle monitoring: inherent dynamic monitoring system according to the EN 692 standard.
  • Nominal sizes: 10 – 15 – 30 – 40 mm
  • Working pressure: 2 – 8 bar
