Robotic Tool Changers Improve Manufacturing and Production

Robotic tool changers are required when changing multiple end effectors, as part of improving production cycle in a given cell. A robot will use a pneumatic gripper to pick up and position a part, after that it exchanges the gripper for a grinder. When the grinder is complete, the robot drops off the tool and reattaches the gripper, so it can remove the piece from its fixture and pick up another...

Heavy Duty Linear Thruster Slide

AGT heavy duty linear thruster slide series are pneumatically powered by an external air cylinder guided by hardened shafts running on precision ball bearings. This linear thruster offers the highest load-carrying capabilities due to the dual endplate system. This serves two purposes, one the shafts are bolted together with the endplates making it a rigid box frame for less vibration, and the...

Laboratory and Research Supplies and Equipment

Magnetic Linear Actuator Slides have fully enclosed piston.

Model AGSL linear actuators have no mechanical connection between carriage body and piston, resulting in enclosed piston that prevents contaminants from escaping. Anodized aluminum carriage is guided on precision linear bearings and rides on hardened ground shafts to move smoothly while supporting tool plate and attached loads. Precision sealed ball bearings also provide provide rugged, precise...
