Direct Industry

Find the right pneumatic actuator for all your actuating and positioning needs using the DirectIndustry search engine.

Research Information invites you to come discover DirectIndustry, the online industrial exhibition where you can find all types of pneumatic actuators for your industrial needs. DirectIndustry lets you chose between the industries leading manufacturers of pneumatic and hydraulic actuators.

Rotary actuator

Rotary actuator

rotary actuator can be either electrically powered, pneumatic or hydraulically powered. They are used in automation applications where accurate rotary motion or torque is needed. A common application is the valve actuator which automatically opens and closes the valve for fluid control purposes. You can also find an entire selection of electric rotary actuators on DirectIndustry which use either stepper or servo motors.

  

 

 

 

Pneumatic swing clamp

Pneumatic swing clamp

Pneumatic swing clamps are machine tool accessories that securely hold parts in place for machining operations. The swing clamps provide automated work-holding for machining operations with frequent workpiece changes and short machining cycle times. There are other configurations found among pneumatic clamps that hold workpieces in place such as edge clamps, push clamps, pull clamps and toggle clamps.

 

 

 

Pneumatic thruster

Pneumatic thruster

The pneumatic thruster may be used when high lifting loads or high thrust loads are required for linear motion applications. They operate using either two or four guide shafts to reduce the amount of deflection when subjected to high loads. When selecting among pneumatic thrusters, be sure to specify the maximum stroke, the speed, the operating pressure, the operating force and the bore size of the cylinder.
