Fabco-Air, Inc. Custom Solutions - Custom Pneumatic SlideThe Engineering and Technical Support Team(s) at Fabco-Air possess an unprecedented amount of Fluid Power problem solving experience. Here is just another example of how the team at Fabco-Air is able to offer a custom solution that fulfills the application requirement perfectly.
This application required a pneumatic linear actuator to operate a sorting device on a conveyor system. The challenge was that the actuator had to maneuver a wide variety of part sizes.
Here is a brief summary of the Fabco-Air solution. A GB Series (block style) pneumatic slide/thruster and a Global Series (metric compact) cylinder were combined together to make a 3-position, air-operated device. To expedite the changeover process and to accommodate thickness variations of parts on the conveyor, a Dial-A-Stroke unit was also added. The Fabco-Air Dial-A-Stroke enables quick and easy adjustability of the intermediate stroke position (up to 2 inches).
As you can see, the team at Fabco-Air is more than capable of creating solutions for even the most demanding applications.
