Air Actuators

Get the right pneumatic linear or rotary actuators for your facilities. John Henry Foster equips you with linear and rotary actuators suited to your applications. You have the assurance that each piece of equipment features high quality and comes at a competitive price. Our range of solutions varies from small pneumatic actuators with a force capacity of a few pounds to heavy-duty equipment capable of moving significant weights. Our team works closely with you to determine actuators that meet any distance or speed requirements.

Grippers

Get access to a complete solution. John Henry Foster provides top-quality grippers, which clamp parts or tools in place as the actuators perform their tasks. We furnish facilities in many industries, especially manufacturing plants that involve material transfer, pick-and-place motions, indexing, and clamping. Achieve more efficient and precise production lines with John Henry Foster. Get in touch to arrange a consultation or request a quote today.

Industries Served

John Henry Foster equips a wide range of clients with pneumatic actuators, including:

  • Manufacturing. Pneumatic actuators power the repetitive motions in manufacturing lines.
  • Electronics. Pneumatic actuators power the precise motions needed in handling and assembly.
  • Chemical and Processes Industries. Pneumatic actuators enable valves to control the flow of chemicals. Compared to other types of actuators, air actuators withstand high temperatures.
  • Water Treatment. Pneumatic systems often control valves and instruments in water treatment plants.
  • Food and Beverage. Pneumatic actuators don’t use fluids or electricity, which makes them a better choice for food handling.

We also work with clients from the automotive, textile, agriculture, and other sectors.

Recommended Products and Solutions

Push-in connectors or push-to-connect fittings deliver ease of use combined with secure and reliable mounting. They are made of premium, durable materials, such as nickel, brass, and stainless steel, which ensure that the fittings are highly resistant to corrosion.

Push-to-connect fittings have user-friendly release rings. Users can easily and quickly release tubes from connections, saving time and effort. They also have more surface area for grip and handling.

Along with ease of attachment and release, the push-to-connect fittings feature optimum seals through captive O-rings. These seals remain airtight and withstand high pressures, ensuring peak performance for pneumatic machines.

Push-to-connect fittings come in different styles and sizes, ensuring that there’s a fitting for every machine and connector. All of these are industrial-grade fittings, capable of withstanding numerous connections and releases, allowing for easy reconfiguration of your pneumatic systems for a long time.
