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. See how Staaccato technologies made pneumatics digital.
On our Youtube channel, you can find more examples.

There are several alternative speed settings in our software;
Constant speed (set max speed)
High, adjustable speed with adjustable deceleration length
Max possible speed with adjustable deceleration length
In this video, you can see the difference between the settings.
in the software package for the Flexible Positioning Unit, FPU.
Manual control of 8 preset, adjustable positions
without need of external signals.
Finger positioning of a ∅ 12mm pneumatic gripper
Demonstration of the new 0.5mm orifice version
Set the required Force in Newtons (N)
Simple demonstration on setting different force.
Demonstration of high precision actuation.
Positioning while being submerged in water.
Here we demonstrate how we use one analog input for positioning, and one analog input for stepless speed control
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:
- Locked position
- Fully extended
- Fully retracted
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.
