Pneumatic Feed Escapements and Separators
AGI Pneumatic Feed Escapements come in two types and eleven sizes offered are dual timed type (AGE) and single non rotating type (AGMS). Pneumatic feed escapement actuator is ideal for singulating and release of individual parts from hoppers, conveyors, vibratory feeder bowls, tracks and magazines.
The AGE compact long stroke singulaters are internally sequenced. The cross porting makes sure both rods are extended before either rod can retract, ensuring positive part feeding and release occurs sequentially and without jamming. The AGI escapements have an easy part clearing feature due to internal back pressure cross port design, this allows both rods to be retracted with air pressure off to clear a jam.
AGMS single finger feed escapement is a double acting actuator with t-slot gib design is ideal for use in tight spaces needing large payloads. This single guided actuator has a T-slot bearing design that is supported the length of the body to handle large moments. Multiple mounting surfaces allow payloads to be attached to the top rail or the endplate. AGMS slides are offered in four stroke sizes from .25 inch (6.4mm) to 2 inch (101 mm) and have .5 and .75 inch bore sizes.
A combination of through holes and threaded holes on the escapement body allow for easy mounting from various directions. Dowel-pin holes on the body of the escapement provide for repeatable installations.
All of these units are available with sensor options for easy interfacing to electrical controls and stroke adjustments that are ideal for fine adjustments.
AGI supplies a complete range of sophisticated automation products that include: pneumatic parallel grippers, rotary actuators, thrusters, linear actuator slides, mini slides, tool changers, overload devices. The units are available in imperial and metric versions for flexibility and design for a world market.
