You may only have seen pneumatic actuators being used for simple movements before, but with Staccato Technologies’ Flexible Positioning Unit, FPU, you can do things most people think they need powerful and expensive AC-Servos for. Below, you will find some of the more common requirements.

On our Youtube channel, you can find more examples.

Force Control application example

Set the required Force in Newtons (N)

Simple demonstration on setting different force.

 

 

+/- 0.1mm visualized

+/- 0.1mm visualized

Demonstration of high precision actuation.

 

 

IP 67 Visualized

Positioning while being submerged in water.

 

 

 

Speed Control on the fly

Here we demonstrate how we use one analog input for positioning, and one analog input for stepless speed control

 

 

ENABLE

In some applications, you want a pre-determined state if a signal is lost. With our FPU-unit, you can choose 4 default states for when “Enable” signal is lost. You can choose:

  • Exhausted
  • Locked position
  • Fully extended
  • Fully retracted

 

Copy Function / Paralell drive

Example of how one actuator act as “Master” to a “Slave” actuator.

The feedback from the master actuators position sensor is used as set point to the slave actuator.

 

Multiple stops on rotary actuator

Here we show how you can control a pneumatic actuator in multiple positions. Work with vane style actuators as well as rack & pinion type.

 

 

Gripper Positioning

Positioning pneumatic gripper fingers in multiple stops. Set point and feedback position signal plotted on graph. Force can also be controlled.
