Pneumatic Table Slides
Pneumatic table slides have dual pistons for double thrust. Accurate, repeatable workpiece mounting is accomplished with dowel hole & slot on table surface. Three (3) body mounts add flexibility. Magnetic pistons standard. Bores 8mm to 25mm. Strokes 10mm to 150mm. See Catalog #FGXS-10.
Specifying Pneumatic Cylinders
Air cylinders are offered in a variety of industry standards. Within these standards, air cylinders come in an assortment of shapes, sizes, and types, as well as with numerous optional features. At first glance, the number of permutations can be a bit overwhelming. The good news is that each pneumatic actuator type and configuration has a place in todays motion-centric automation environment. Our new white paper delineates the spectrum of available standard options that can quite often be the key to avoiding the need for a totally custom air cylinder.
A Radical Approach to Pneumatic Gripper Design
Simple concept uses only three (3) moving parts. White paper illuminates solutions to seven (7) typical design flaws hindering performance of conventional pneumatic grippers. Concepts presented include exploded views of each design aspect simplified ways to attach tooling to jaws attaching grippers to actuator arms verifying parts size and parts presence.
Maintaining Exact Forces for Best Results With a Pneumatic Press
White paper examines a unique pressure sensing valve and the air circuitry used to control press operation. Topics include determining exact force requirements producing exact, repeatable forces and controlling speed and shock when punching holes.
Rivet, Hole Punch & Broaching Applications Using Air Cylinders
Force-multiplying air cylinders are used to to produce forces in excess of 39,000 pounds. Along with helpful air circuit diagrams, topics include controlling speed and shock when punching holes determining force requirements for bending, crimping etc. producing exact, repeatable forces with unique air valves.
Selecting Pneumatic Linear Slides for Automated Assembly Equipment
A pneumatic linear slide combines an air cylinder power source with a guide mechanism that supports a workload over a precise linear path. Choosing from one of six (6) typical slide styles is explained in relation to force requirements, load capacity, linear travel and operating speeds.
