Air Actuators provide gentle handling of delicate parts.

PNRE Series friction-free actuators require less than 10 psi to operate. Light touch or physical obstruction will stop unit's movement before it can damage equipment and parts. Using bearing system containing cylindrical steel rollers, carriage glides almost friction-free over base. Slide assembly is controlled by pair of Airpot Dashpots. Three models are available with travel of 0.5, 1.0, and...
