Bimba Launches Versatile PA Series Actuator at a Competitive Price

PA Series actuators offer a highly consistent and reliable way to convert pneumatic energy into linear force and motion.

The PA Series NFPA actuator provides a versatile, cost-effective solution to a variety of applications. Its lightweight aluminum construction and modern extruded design are only matched by its flexible mounting configurations and a number of standard features. PA Series actuators offer a highly consistent and reliable way to convert pneumatic energy into linear force and motion.

The PA Series is designed to meet the same requirements as typical NFPA actuators but includes features such as die-cast aluminum endcaps, extruded aluminum housing, and polymer pistons.
Standard options like auto-cushioning and magnetic pistons allow the PA Series simple installation and operation, reducing complexity and promoting longer machine life. A variety of custom options are available to make the PA Series the perfect fit within your most challenging applications.
"The PA series is a great complement to our current line of NFPA actuators," says Sheila Campbell, Product Manager. "By offering set bore sizes and rod diameters, the PA series delivers simple, straightforward pneumatic actuators as a counterpoint to the highly configurable TA series, all at a competitive price."
Benefits:
 Reduce complexity with standard universal mount and bolt-on NFPA selection
 Flexibility with integral switch mounting grooves on three sides of profile tube
 Modern appearance with smooth end caps contoured to profile tube for easy cleaning
 Auto-cushioning for a "fit-and-forget" solution

Technical Features:
 Operating Pressure: 250 PSIG
 Bore Sizes: 1.50", 2.00", 2.50", 3.25", 4.00"
 Strokes: 0.125" - 100"

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
