Where Can Pneumatic Linear Actuators Be Used?

Pneumatic linear actuators offer rapid, cost-effective industrial linear motion solutions by utilizing compressed air, providing a design simplicity that is beneficial in equally straightforward motion systems.

Tolomatic actuators have been used for many different applications including:

What’s the Difference Between Band Cylinders, Cable Cylinders and Magnetic Linear Actuators?

Band cylinders, cable cylinders and magnetic cylinders are linear actuators that each offer their own particular benefits as part of a pneumatic motion system.

  • Band Cylinders have a carrier which supports attached loads and is directly attached to the piston. These cylinders utilize sealing and dust bands across the length to seal the piston and carrier connection point. This type of pneumatic actuator is best for most applications, especially those where external guides cannot be used.
  • Cable Cylinders are the first rodless actuator ever invented and use a pair of cables attached to an internal piston to move an external clevis mount. These pneumatic actuators are best for applications where there are external guides available or those requiring greater distance between the cylinder and the load being moved.
  • Magnetic Cylinders have the carrier magnetically connected to the internal piston. This makes for a completely remote connection with no material connection point, allowing the carrier to be uncoupled from the piston. These actuators are best for applications that require safety and a carrier that can be disconnected or in applications requiring ingress protection.
