Industry Trends & Events

Bionic Biped

Bionic Biped
Demonstrating brains and brawn, this walking robot uses bellows-like actuators to replicate ankle, hip, and knee movement. The "Pleated Pneumatic Artificial Muscles," controlled by on-board electronics, provide unusually high force-to-weight and power-to-weight ratios. Read about the muscles and robot in Hydraulics & Pneumatics magazine. Watch a related video (scroll down to “Health.”)

AGI — American Grippers Inc.

Pneumatic Rotary Actuators


Pneumatic Rotary Actuators

AGI, a leader in motion control technology, introduces the latest technological advancement in pneumatic rotary actuators. AGI offers a new Flange Stop Design to reduce internal drive component wear. The Series AGR Rotary Actuator features an ultra-thin profile and bearing-supported flange, providing an extremely compact package for tight space applications.

Tol-O-Matic, Inc. (TolOMatic)

BC4 Series™ Band Cylinder®


BC4 Series™ Band Cylinder®

The BC4 Series™ Band Cylinder® is a perfect choice for applications where existing guided and supported loads require pneumatic actuation. Its internal load-supporting bearing design offers substantially more bearing surface than other cylinders in its class. The result is durable, dependable performance with low breakaway and high speeds.

More information about Tol-O-Matic, Inc. (TolOMatic) is available here.


Pneumatic Servos for Precise Positioning


Pneumatic Servos for Precise Positioning

Nonlinearities (high friction forces, dead time) can dampen those advantages (low cost, high power-to-weight) normally associated with the use of pneumatic actuators. The Department of Mechanical Engineering at Canada’s McMaster University has developed control algorithms that reportedly permit fast and accurate positioning. Visit their Web site to view a series of application videos for their servo-controlled pneumatic actuators, and to access related white papers describing the department’s work in this area.


Clean Room Cylinder


Clean Room Cylinder

This product is said to be the only rodless cylinder with IPA Institute certification for clean room application. Besides a compact design, the pneumatic cylinder supports high direct and cantilevered loads, and provides equal force and velocity in either direction. A partial vacuum between inner and outer sealing bands ensures there are no emissions. Read all the specs.

A More Flexible Robot Arm


A More Flexible Robot ArmLearn how the robot manufacturer Kuka can improve the efficiency — and economy — of injection molding operations. The company’s new “shelf-mounted” robots with integrated valve terminal/vacuum generator technology from Festo replace traditional linear gantry systems to give customers more flexibility with loading and parts removal. Find out more here.


Two-Step Installation


Two-Step InstallationAttach an air source; hook up the signal lines. Installing these valve-in-head cylinders cannot be much easier. Features for the complete power module include easy maintenance, high reliability, compact construction, and many configuration options.


Air Supply

Air Logic

Modular Precision Regulator Systems


Modular Precision Regulator Systems These regulators provide the ultimate in regulation of pressure and feature excellent repeatability, sensitive 20-turn adjustment, and miniature size. The balance of the valve seat gives an output that is virtually unaffected by changes in supply pressure, only 0.1 PSI output change with a 10 PSI supply pressure change.

Learn more about Air Logic here.


ARO Tool and Hoist Division

ARO Rotary-Vane Pneumatic Power Motors


ARO Rotary-Vane Pneumatic Power MotorsARO rotary-vane pneumatic power motors are designed to be used in a fixed position and remotely controlled. They provide all the safety, convenience, and reliability of portable handheld air tools. In proportion to their power output they are small and light, and can be installed in confined spaced which cannot accept conventional electrics motors.

More information about ARO Tool and Hoist Division is available here.


Air Motor Application Help


Air Motor Application HelpVane motor or radial piston type? Reversible or non-reversible? What about maximum power, desired operating speed, and torque requirements? Ingersoll Rand helps engineers sort through set-up criteria to properly match air motor and job. View their Custom Solution Form.


Pulsing Dust Collector is More Efficient


Pulsing Dust Collector is More EfficientTo the uninitiated, this industrial filter appears to be a mundane dust collector. However, advanced computational Fluid Dynamics — used in the design — assures its patented status. An optimized Venturi, unobstructed air way, and application-specific filter media contribute to high filtration efficiency and long filter life. Read more about the SFC Series of Cartridge Dust Collectors here, and review the patented technology here.
