  • Polyactuators: A strong and compact alternative
    A new type of pneumatic actuator is fabricated of several molded plastic elements welded together in a sealed unit. Airomatic pneumatic actuators are made of molded plastic. They provide low clearance, strokes to 0.5 in., and 100-lb force at 35 psi. The Airomatic line of polyactuators from requires
  • A fan of fuel savings
    On-off fan controls aren't ideal for all applications. Lift trucks and skid loaders, for example, tend to cycle on-off clutches more frequently because such vehicles always need some amount of engine-fan cooling. Two-speed fan clutches work better in these applications. Such clutches have embedded
  • Vacuum systems accelerate chip production
    Advances in controls and networks combined with components that pack more punch have opened the door to more-precise, durable, and economical pneumatic systems. Like most manufacturers today, the trend among semiconductor-device companies is to raise productivity. But speeding up machines
  • Chrysler brings Ethernet to pneumatics
    structural parts. Pneumatics work together with electromechanical actuators to move and position parts. For instance, air knives help separate individual blanks from a stack, then gantry-mounted suction cups lift them onto a conveyor. The conveyor carries the blanks through a washer, where
