More about pneumatic actuators

Pneumatic actuators make use of air power, converting it into force, which enables the actuators to move in rotational, push or pull motions. Pneumatic actuators are used in different machines and systems in a wide range of industries to control the movement of parts quickly and precisely or to regulate the flow of fluids.

Examples of applications where pneumatic actuators are used include controlling the movement of objects on assembly lines, valves in pipelines, or positioning components in robotics. Pneumatic actuators are beneficial for improving applications that have safety requirements. For instance, they do not generate heat or make sparks, proving suitable for applications in the oil & gas industry, and many others.

Frequently asked questions:

How do pneumatic actuator systems work?
Energy is generated through the efficient use of compressed air. The air in the instrument builds up pressure, which is applied against the instrument piston or diaphragm, which moves the valve actuator to position on the valve stem. This results in mechanical motion.
What are the main types of pneumatic actuators?
There are various pneumatic actuators, each created for a specific function. The four main types of actuators are pneumatic, hydraulic, electric and manual.
What are pneumatic actuators used for?
Pneumatic actuators are used in a variety of automotive applications, including engine control, transmission control, and braking systems. They are also used in the industrial and manufacturing sectors to actuate a variety of drive systems.
What are the differences between pneumatic and electric actuators?
A pneumatic actuator is driven by air compression and converts air pressure into mechanical force to operate a valve. Electric actuators, on the other hand, make use of electrical energy to produce mechanical energy.
