When considering how to move products and actuate mechanisms, machine designers have a vast array of actuators to choose from. Designers often consider pneumatic actuators first because of their low upfront costs and simplicity of use. However, pneumatic actuators come with limitations that may make them unsuitable for many applications, including limited motion profile flexibility, high operating costs of compressed air, or no availability of compressed air. For all of these reasons, knowledge of easy-to-use, low-cost electromechanical solutions is important for many designers today. Join us for a discussion of these topics.
