ACTUATORS

Festo piston rod cylinders are pneumatic drives for carrying out linear movements. The energy applied to the piston is transmitted to the parts to be moved via a piston rod. Piston rod cylinders are available round cylinders, profile cylinders, compact cylinders, short-stroke cylinders, flat cylinders, miniature cylinders, cartridge cylinders or stainless steel cylinders.

Rodless cylinders are pneumatic cylinders and – as the name suggests – do not require a piston rod. But even without a piston rod they perform a linear movement, which is why they are also called linear drives. Rodless cylinders are used primarily in applications with relatively long travel distances, e.g. as the basic drive in a multi-axis gantry or for feeding tasks.

Pneumatic semi-rotary drives/rotary drives from Festo enable rotary movements up to a swivel angle of 270°. Whether with vane drive or gear rack drive: highest precision is just as characteristic as the high performance and variety of the drives. Our pneumatic drives are used in a wide range of industries for factory automation, for example.

Festo guided cylinders – drives with guide rod and linear guides – are pneumatic drives and are among the “workhorses” of industrial automation. They are in widespread use in applications involving lifting, pressing, pulling, pushing, clamping, stopping, holding, cutting, separating, and much more. Both types of guided cylinders combine the advantages of linear motion with those of guidance, and are characterized by particularly high stability.

Tandem cylinders are two identical profile barrel cylinders of the DNC type arranged in series for doubling the thrust force in both directions of movement. A high-force cylinder is a cylinder design defined by a series of compact pneumatic cylinders. Pneumatic multi-position drives are available as a version with two separate cylinders and as a version with two to five cylinders connected in series.

Festo offers solutions for handling technology worldwide with its feed separators. They facilitate the process of feeding workpieces and are used when continuously arriving workpieces have to be separated and individually transferred to a downstream device. Stopper cylinders are pneumatic cylinders used for damped or undamped stopping of movements in machines or workpiece carriers on transport systems. On transport systems, stopper cylinders with cushioning can stop loads of up to approx. 800 kg.

Clamp cylinders hold or clamp workpieces either directly with a pneumatically operated clamping element or via kinematics. The clamping element is swiveled out of the working area in the inactive status. Using kinematics, very high holding forces can be achieved with low energy consumption.

Bellows and diaphragm drives form a class of their own in the world of pneumatics with special characteristics. For example, they have no stick-slip effect. They can be used as drive or air spring elements in a wide range of applications.

Continuous rotary movements can be realized with pneumatic rotary indexing tables. Rotary indexing tables are used, for example, in assembly applications. A variable direction of rotation and freely selectable graduations allow a wide range of applications.
