That’s right! There are those who use pneumatics for things beyond manufacturing and some of those projects are really spooky!
If you want to, let’s dive further in – if you dare!
Pneumatics for Halloween Props
Pneumatic flow controls and valves are perfect for putting together all kinds of interesting, automated projects. Flow controls serve two different uses: flow controls that are controlled by pneumatics and those that control the pneumatics. When using compressed air, to say build props for the holidays, you need something that will control the flow of air into the rest of the components. This ensures precise control of that prop and keeps accidents and injuries down.
Speaking of holiday props, what if you could build something that would really scare the pants of someone for Halloween? With basic pneumatics, including flow controls and valves, you could do it. By using the power of compressed gas, cylinders and other types of pneumatic components, you can build out some serious robotic Halloween props.

A More Spooky, Less Noisy
Noise can cause an engineer to build something great or come up with one more failed attempt. Sure, noise can change the outcome of many things, but when you’re working with basic pneumatics, it’s sometimes beneficial to reduce noise for success. Luckily, there are pneumatic silencers or noise reducers. They come in different sizes and shapes and can help not only with scientific projects, but also with scary ones, too. Scary projects, you say? Well, you know, Halloween is around the corner and what better time to spook someone with robotic Halloween props. But, wait. What if your prop needs to be sneaky and make as little noise as possible? Well, that’s why noise reducers are invented. With these, you can open up something without much noise and scare the pants off of someone.

SMC Pneumatics USA Helps with Spooky Projects
Basic pneumatics don’t just function for scientific or manufacturing projects, they also help with cool and fun projects, such as spooky automated Halloween projects. From valves and flow controls to noise reducers, SMC Pneumatics USA knows not all pneumatic projects are business-related. They know some like to shoot pumpkins and some like to scare the pants off of their visitors. That’s why they are happy to provide such components to those looking out of the box at different pneumatics projects.
