We know that industrial automation can keep the business running efficiently, which is the most productive and safe way as well. And knowing more about pneumatic cylinder parts in industrial automation can help your employees complete automate repetitive tasks, and also help you truly improve your business growth, since the pneumatic actuator is a device that can assist other machines for getting physical movements precisely. Usually there are two big categories for actuators from designs. One is rotary pneumatic cylinder, and the other is linear pneumatic cylinder. In this article, we will talk about the difference between rotational and linear gripper cylinder.
What is rotational gripper cylinder?
Seen from the name, we can know that rotational gripper cylinder can revolve 90 degrees, 180 degrees or even 360 degrees over a set amount of distance. The working principle of the rotary clamping pneumatic cylinder is to use pneumatic or hydraulic drive. During the work, the piston completes the rotation first, and then completes the clamping action such as pressing and clamping the work piece in a straight line after rotating to the designed position and angle. There are 45 degrees, 90 degrees, 180 degrees, and 360 degrees to choose from.
There are many advantages of rotary gripper pneumatic cylinder. The rotation gap is more than 50% smaller than that of ordinary cylinders on the market. It adopts three-slot track structure and ball design, which makes the operation more stable. The hardness of the rotating rod is more than 3 times that of the ordinary pneumatic cylinder. And usually it is made of high-carbon steel material with special treatment. In addition, the precision coordination is more than 30% higher than that of peers. All accessories are machined by a high-precision machining center, and all imported seals are used to ensure service life.
What is linear gripper cylinder?
Generally speaking, linear gripper cylinder moves in a straight line which is different from rotary actuator, that is to say, its movement does either forwards or backwards. Of course, rotary actuator and linear actuator have their own unique features and applications, and each of them brings different benefits for different industries, so, both of them are important. As a common part, linear pneumatic actuator actually is be used in a lot of the devices throughout our daily lives, since linear movement itself is essential to the work mode of these things. You may find it in our daily lives, such as personal computers especially hard disk drives, entertainment devices including gaming consoles and so on. In industrial equipments, you also can find them everywhere.
Usually the power of linear pneumatic actuators can be provided by air, electricity, or hydraulic fluid according to different applications. They are reliable in use, and are very beneficial to the various industrial automations. The key is that their cost is efficient. It can be said that it is a good choice when a fine control of automated system is needed. What is more, it has the characteristics of smooth operation, relatively easy maintenance, and additional benefits such as compact design etc.
