Tough on the out­side, tough on the in­side

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PRODUCT WATCH -

Wa­ter, dust, dirt par­ti­cles and ag­gres­sive media of­ten rep­re­sent con­sid­er­able chal­lenges for lin­ear ac­tu­a­tors in process au­to­ma­tion. Many com­po­nents may not ap­pear to have any im­me­di­ate im­pair­ment of per­for­mance, but strengths and weak­nesses soon be­come ap­par­ent in long-term op­er­a­tion. The new DFPI-NB3 from Festo demon­strates the per­for­mance which a pneu­matic lin­ear ac­tu­a­tor is ca­pa­ble of, even un­der the harsh­est en­vi­ron­men­tal con­di­tions.

De­signed in ac­cor­dance with ISO 15552 and equipped with an in­te­grated dis­place­ment en­coder and op­ti­mised pis­ton rod guide, this in­no­va­tive lin­ear ac­tu­a­tor de­liv­ers high per­for­mance over long pe­ri­ods. The chem­i­cal and min­ing in­dus­tries, energy pro­duc­ers, ma­chine and plant builders, wa­ter treat­ment com­pa­nies and com­pa­nies han­dling bulk goods have in the DFPI-NB3 a top per­former with a long ser­vice life.

A fur­ther ad­van­tage of this lin­ear ac­tu­a­tor from Festo with re­gard to its load ca­pac­ity and en­hanced range of ap­pli­ca­tions is its de­sign in ac­cor­dance with ISO 15552. This in­cludes an op­ti­mised pis­ton rod guide, which coun­ter­acts the ef­fect of trans­verse forces on the pis­ton rod and thus makes the DFPI-NB3 also suit­able for swivel mo­tions. Thanks to the stan­dard mount­ing in­ter­faces, users can draw on a com­pre­hen­sive range of ac­ces­sories for ev­ery in­stal­la­tion sit­u­a­tion.­quiry #150914a.
