Tolomatic rodless pneumatic cylinders are available in band, cable, and magnetically coupled designs with a variety of strokes and load carrying capacities. Our rod-style pneumatic Power-Block2 is a great choice for short stroke applications.
Select the Right Linear Actuator: Making Sense of Manufacturer Specifications
In the world of electromechanical linear actuators, a product that has the "highest" output rating, whether it is loads, moments, or thrust can be a distinct competitive advantage. When selecting the proper actuator for an application, the product that has the "highest" rating is often determined to be the superior, robust choice. However, how long the actuator performs is what really counts. How do you compare manufacturer's published specification ratings so you can make a meaningful comparison? It's all about life and load. This paper will give concrete examples that compare specifications and explain how to interpret the results.
Evaluating Actuators for Washdown in Food & Beverage Applications: Materials, Design, Fabrication and Maintenance Affect Actuator Performance and Compliance With Food Safety Guidelines
Actuators used in the food and beverage industry must be manufactured from appropriate materials and designed in a way that eliminates collection points where bacteria can flourish. Suitable actuators must also be capable of withstanding frequent washdowns with water, detergents, steam, caustic soda, citric acid or other types of sanitary cleaning solutions. This paper will examine how actuators need to be designed and built in order to perform in this challenging environment so that process and automation engineers can select the most appropriate actuators for their food and beverage applications.
Rules of Actuator and Guide Alignment in Linear Motion Systems
Many automated machines rely upon linear guidance components, such as profiled rail, round rail or other rolling or sliding bearing structures, to guide and support the moving elements of the equipment. Often these moving elements are driven by some type of linear actuator device. This paper will discuss ways to enhance overall system performance by optimizing the "alignment" of the linear guide and actuator.
