Branham, W.C. Inc. - Why Compact Air Cylinders Are Still A Big Deal

When we hear the familiar phrases “small but mighty” and “oldie but goodie” referring to fluid power, what comes to mind? Compact air cylinders, of course! Although they've been around since the 1950s, compact air cylinders have certainly stood the test of time. They have proven so versatile, they’re still the right solution for a wide range of industrial ap... (read more)

Branham, W.C. Inc. - Double-Acting Air Cylinder

When is a Double-Acting Air Cylinder Right for Your Application?

Cylinders that convert energy into linear motion can be powered by hydraulic fluid or compressed air. Hydraulic cylinders are usually the go-to option for seriously heavy-duty lifting and moving because hydraulics are very powerful and can provide tremendous holding strength. But for most industrial applicatio... (read more)

Branham, W.C. Inc. - How Do You Determine Moment Load?

There are always numerous factors that go into choosing the right linear actuator for an application. One consideration that is often overlooked is moment loading. Moment load comes into play when the cylinder is located some distance away from the actual load that it's lifting. (read more)

Branham, W.C. Inc. - What's the Difference Between Cylinders?

When choosing the best type of actuator for your design, there are several variables to consider: What you need to move, how you need it to move, and under what conditions.

Your four choices are mechanical, electric, hydraulic, or pneumatic. The difference between these cylinders gives each one distinct advantages and disadvantages when used for certain applications. (read more)

Branham, W.C. Inc. - Gearbox Options for Food-Grade Grease

For some industrial applications, gearbox design has to consider more than the functionality of the gears themselves. The gearbox may have to withstand particularly harsh or wet operating conditions. Or it may have to operate in a sterile environment. Or it may have to be lubricated with food-grade grease. In some cases, all of these factors apply. (read more)

Branham, W.C. Inc. - Fluid Power 101: Common Uses for DURATRK™

When we talk about fluid power, we often think of hydraulics because hydraulic actuators use a fluid such as oil. But let’s not forget that air is also a fluid, even though it’s not a liquid, because it flows. And air is a powerful option for driving industrial actuators — often the preferred option compared to hydraulic actuators. (read more)

Branham, W.C. Inc. - When to Use a Hydraulic Cable Linear Actuator

There is a wide variety of pneumatic products on the market that nicely suits almost any industrial purpose. But, in some cases, a hydraulic cable linear actuator may be the better choice.

All linear actuators convert energy into straight-line motion, forward and/or back. Hydraulic actuators use fluid as a power source rather than compressed air, and they use either a rod or a cab... (read more)

Branham, W.C. Inc. - When/Why You Need an Air/Oil Intensifier

Hydraulic caliper disc brakes can be an excellent choice for many industrial applications, especially those that require clamping or similar high-force movements. But what if compressed air is your only power source? An air/oil intensifier can convert low-pressure into high pressure in instances where a hydraulic pressure system is not available or where hydraulic pressure is too low.

Branham, W.C. Inc. - Pneumatic Rodless Cylinders; Passenger Train Doors

Passenger train doors have to work smoothly, quietly, safely, and reliably. Often, they have to function in extreme conditions, where heat and/or humidity are very high, or temperatures are well below zero. They have to endure constant vibration and frequent shocks, no matter how well-maintained the railroad tracks. And passenger train doors are heavy. This is a job for pneumatic rodless... (read more)

Branham, W.C. Inc. - PFS38 Pneumatic Spring Applied Brake

Scale matters in industrial design. When it comes to braking, you don’t necessarily need enough torque to stop a freight train. A gentle touch will do fine for subtle movements. A larger brake may work OK if it fits the space available, but it will probably cost more and not operate as efficiently.

We, at W.C. Branham, are excited to announce our new pneumatic spring applied... (read more)
