Actuators using compressed air to create movement have been around for many years.  The advantage of using pneumatic actuators is that you are able to create significant force and quick response time in a very cost effective manner.  Force on a pneumatic cylinder is determined by the bore size of the actuator and the pressure used to operate it.  Therefore the more force required, the larger the bore size necessary to accomplish the task.  If physical space to fit the actuator in is restricted then we have force multiplier cylinders that allow us to have greater shifting force for a given bore size and rodless cylinders to allow longer stroke in a given envelope size.  If the application calls for supporting non-linear loads then our manufacturers have multiple styles of pneumatic actuators with linear guides for support.      
 
Bimba and PHD have been making pneumatic cylinders and actuators for more than 50 years each and TRD Manufacturing for 35 years.  They make a wide variety of actuator types and have very good deliveries, if we do not already have them in our inventory.  In all cases they have excellent lead times when compared to our competitors.

Provoast Automation Controls Knows Pneumatic Actuators

  • Actuators that come in a wide range of functions such as Single Acting, Double Acting, Multi-position, Rotary, Escapements, Rodless,  etc.
  • Actuators that come in a wide variety of sizes ranging from 5/16” to 8” bore sizes.
  • Actuators to meet the standardization requirements for “ISO” and “NFPA” cylinders.
  • Actuators that come with a variety of bearing types to provide greater precision and load carrying capabilities.
  • Actuators that are repairable or non-repairable throwaway type cylinders.
  • All of our Actuator manufacturers have special engineering departments for customizing their products to best meet your application requirements.  We can take an existing competitive product that might be giving you problems and give you a drop in replacement that can be more cost effective or give you better performance.
 
Controlling force and speed in a pneumatic system requires the use of Regulators and flow controls.  Check out our Air Preparation and Accessories sections on the website for these components and contact us if you would like some help.
