Welcome to Rowse Pneumatics, the specialist division of Rowse where pneumatics is our particular focus. We've been building up our expertise in this field for many years; our company was originally founded in Plymouth in 2004. As our network of valued customers has expanded outwards from the South West, so our portfolio of pneumatic products has grown and diversified. And the further we move into the 21st century, the more we find that pneumatics is taking over from traditional mechanics. We're a forerunner in that area, so if you want to know what's new in pneumatics, you'll find it here.

Pneumatics today is a cutting edge industry that forms an integral part of Industry 4.0, or the fourth industrial revolution. Smart factories now boast machinery that's seamlessly connected in a communication network which you can control with portable devices. This Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is enabling radical changes in the way we work, so that modern pneumatically driven systems are often fully automated.

A lot of this is due to the gradual integration of artificial intelligence, and the increased use of logic controllers and Human Machine Interfaces (HMI). The scope of pneumatic capabilities is rapidly developing from a well-established technology into an industry leader, in a wide variety of sectors and diverse applications. Pneumatic systems are inherently reliable, as well as simpler and safer to use, even in hazardous environments.

Today's pneumatics is also focused on improving energy efficiency, in an effort to reduce both consumption and costs. Environmental issues are very much to the fore, and industry is working towards a cleaner and less destructive form of energy use. Developments in advanced pneumatic technologies also benefit productivity and system maintenance, and it's our aim at Rowse Pneumatics to bring you all the news and latest advances as they happen.
