Pneumatic actuators and grippers are used to accurately clamp and position parts or tooling and are ideal for applications such as conveying, clamping, transferring parts, positioning, and controlling valves. Actuators are highly efficient, safe and reliable sources of motion control that utilize pressurized air or gas to convert energy into linear or rotary motion. Pneumatic grippers are used in a broad range of general automation processes such as pick & place, material transfer, clamping and indexing within automated manufacturing and processing systems.
