Automation requires several processes to seamlessly improve efficiency and productivity in operations. In many automation processes, the right pneumatic actuators are needed.

Basically, pneumatic actuators are used to convert the energy from pressurized air into rotary and linear motion. With exceptional motion control, it guarantees the precision needed in automation.

Pneumatic actuators work together with grippers.

Grippers clamp parts or tools in place as the actuators perform their tasks. This part is often used in automation processes in manufacturing, which includes material transfer, pick and place, clamping, and indexing.

Seamless and automated production lines are achieved when these parts work together well.
