As pneumatic lifting and press cylinders, air actuators perform difficult jobs in the area of machine and plant engineering. In internal logistics operations, for example, they have stood the test on transport systems in parcel sorting centers. Their robust and simple design gives them an edge over conventional pneumatic cylinders in many applications. They are a wise choice where clearances are tight and adverse ambient conditions prevail. ContiTech can supply pneumatic cylinders with diameters ranging from 60 mm to 1000 mm and a standard pressure of 8 bar. They have a lifting power of 0.5 kN to 440 kN. Designs for operating pressures of up to 16 bar are also available for special applications.
