Pneumatics can be used for many applications and in some applications are mandatory. Complete pneumatic systems are commonly used in explosion proof applications as the use of air to move and control all actuators posses virtually no risk of fire or electrical shock. Pneumatics are also very good when used in conjunction with electrical motion products. When high speed, high duty cycle and low cost are called for on an application, pneumatics are implemented along with the electrical systems to best optimize the compete package. Typically, we use the Festo pneumatic product line. Please contact us for more information on these products and how we can implement them into your processes.
- Press systems - automotive components, insertion of bearing, stress testing, etc.
- Vertical axis - pneumatic actuators used for the up and down or Z-axis movement on a servo gantry system.
- Product rotation - used for rotating products for proper orientation for packaging, modifying, labeling, etc.
- Vacuum - used for pick and place applications where the pneumatics use suction cups to grab the product for movement
