Pneumatic rotary actuators and grippers are used to accurately clamp and position parts or tooling. Rotary actuators can rotate items up to 190 degrees, while grippers are used to clamp or grasp an item, typically in preparation to move it.
NITRA® Pneumatic Rotary Actuators feature robust double rack and pinion construction and an a djustable 0-190 degree rotation angle. The compact design is ideal for general material handling and other industrial applications such as conveying, clamping, transferring parts, positioning, and controlling valves.
NITRA Pneumatic Grippers are pneumatic actuators with jaws (or fingers) to grip objects. Compressed air pneumatic grippers have the ability to pick up, hold and release objects. Two jaw parallel and two jaw angle grippers are available from AutomationDirect. Parallel grippers open and close parallel to the object and angle (or angular) grippers open wider than parallel jaws requiring more space. Pneumatic grippers are used in a broad range of general automation processes such as pick & place, material transfer, clamping and indexing.
We have great prices on ALL the components you need to complete a pneumatic control system. We supply seven types of pneumatic cylinders and all of our NITRA pneumatic cylinders are in stock for fast shipping and have a 2-year warranty.
NITRA Pneumatics rotary actuators are an excellent choice for many automation applications. Available in four body sizes with or without shock absorbers. All are double acting and have an adjustable travel range from zero to 190 degrees. Anodized aluminum bodies include integral mounting slots for position switches. A durable ball bearing hub, integrated piston magnets, and switch tracks are all standard.
NITRA Pneumatics parallel grippers are an excellent choice for many automation applications. The grippers are available in seven different body sizes and are either double acting, single acting normally closed or single acting normally open. Anodized aluminum bodies include integral mounting slots for position switches.
NITRA Pneumatics angle (angular) grippers are available in six different body sizes and are either double acting normally closed or normally open or single acting normally open. Anodized aluminum bodies include integral mounting slots for position switches.
