Heavy Duty Linear Thruster Slide

Submitted by: on April 16, 2011  


AGT Heavy Duty Linear Thruster Slide from AGI

AGT heavy duty linear thruster slide series are pneumatically powered by an external air cylinder guided by hardened shafts running on precision ball bearings. This linear thruster offers the highest load-carrying capabilities due to the dual endplate system. This serves two purposes, one the shafts are bolted together with the endplates making it a rigid box frame for less vibration, and the second the load is stopped by the end plates, not the air cylinders piston. AGT linear thruster slide is ideal for high-speed applications requiring durability, heavy loading, precise movement and accuracy in one package.

Three bore sizes: .75 inch, 1.125 inch, and 1.50 inch are offered with sensor and shock absorbers options. Stroke lengths are available from 1″ to 12″ incremental.
Position sensors can easily be added to the AGT to detect the end of travel positions of the travel.

The AGT Thrusters are used in many industrial applications, R&D, lab, production and from single direction to complex X-Y-Z motion. AGI pneumatic automation components are used in many Pick-N-Place applications and can handle small to large objects.

Important features and benefits:

  • Box frame construction with dual end plates bolted together
  • Load is stopped by end plates and not the air cylinder
  • Precision sealed ball bearings for heavy loading, precise movement
  • Floating piston shaft eliminates cylinder binding
  • Tooling plate is offset from the body allowing clearance between tooling plate and mounting surface
  • Slip fit dowel holes on body and tooling plate
  • Main body has tapped holes on side and on back for ease of mounting
  • Tooling plate has tapped/counter bored mounting holes
  • Optional Extend and retract shock absorbers and sensors
  • Replaceable air cylinder

Pneumatic Zero Position Fixed Jaw Gripper from AGI

Submitted by: on September 02, 2009  


Pneumatic Zero Position Fixed Jaw Gripper from AGI The AGPS fixed jaw parallel grippers offer a unique gripping solution for applications that require a zero point for exact part pick up or placement and high loading capability. The compact size of this pneumatic gripper linear actuator is ideal for use in tight spaces needing large payloads with a quick clamping cylinder.

The one-piece body and stationary jaw design integrated with the precision T-slot bearing design that is supported the full length of the body is designed to carry heavy loads. AGPS straight-line design offers high moment load and high accuracy in a compact lightweight package that features a lightweight aluminum base that is hard anodized and a carriage bearing made from Ampco 18 aluminum-bronze. Standard mounting and dowel holes on the slide jaw carriage endplate make it easy to attach the tooling jaws and the unit’s base offers four holes for mounting. Hardened stroke adjustments and locks are standard on end of extend and retract of stroke offer excellent zero point repeatability.

AGPS series mini-linear actuators from AGI provide grip force of 15 to 25 lbs. with four stroke sizes up to two inches, yet the total height of the assembly is only 0.813 inches it is one of the smallest commercially available pneumatic actuator.

The pneumatic gripper linear actuator is part of a new product line that offers flexible configurations. The grippers have two bore sizes .5 and also a .75 inch available in .5, 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0 inch strokes. Optional switch kits allow the use of inductive proximity switches for easy interfacing to electrical controls.

Miniature Pneumatic Linear Actuator from AGI The AGMS compact bearing guided air cylinder offer a high performance solution for linear motion applications that require short strokes coupled with compact boundary dimensions and high loading capability. The compact size of this pneumatic miniature linear actuator is ideal for use in tight spaces needing large payloads.

AGMS series mini-linear actuators from AGI provide a load-carrying capacity of 3 to 28 lbs., yet the total height of the assembly is only 0.813 inches, making this one of the smallest commercially available pneumatic linear actuator.

This precision mini-slide has a T-slot bearing design that is supported the full length of the body to carry heavy loads. AGMS straight-line design offers High moment load and high accuracy in a compact lightweight package. It features a lightweight aluminum base that is hard anodized and a carriage made from Ampco 18 aluminum-bronze. Standard mounting holes on the slide carriage and endplate make it easy to attach the mechanism being moved and the unit’s base offers four holes for mounting. Stroke adjustments and locks are standard on end of extend and retract of stroke.

The Mini-Linear Actuator is part of a new product line that offers flexible configurations. The Pneumatically actuated mini slides have two bore sizes .5 and also a .75 inch available in .5, 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0 inch strokes. Optional switch kits allow the use of inductive proximity switches for easy interfacing to electrical controls.

3 Jaw Pneumatic Angular Grippers With Fail Safe Toggle Lock from AGI

Submitted by: on June 10, 2009  


3 Jaw Pneumatic Angular Grippers With Fail Safe Toggle Lock from AGIAGI introduces the latest technological advancement in three jaw pneumatic angular grippers.

The AGA Series Angular Gripper Actuator features four new models that have three jaws. The gripper jaws 180 degree opening is suited for applications which must be performed within a limited work area. The AGA-23, 33, 43 and 53 series have stroke-limiting screws to adjust the stroke between 0 and 180 degree. The four sizes have a range gripping forces from 20 to 200 lbs.

When the jaws are completely opened, the work piece can be placed in a fixture without having to retract the gripper. This saves an extra step as well as the expense of another axis of movement. The toggle mechanism greatly increases in power as the jaws near the fully closed position and become self-locking when past parallel. The internal linkages are guided by two groves that run the length of the body.
This will keeps the tooling jaws from loosing the center repeatability. Close attention must be made to the tooling jaws when designing them. Because the jaws swing an arc, the mechanism produces higher velocity at the end of your tooling during the stroke.
Therefore, tooling jaws should be short, lightweight as possible, and flow controls are recommended. In cases where longer jaws are needed, bumpers or miniature hydraulic shocks should be used to decelerate the jaw at the end of the stroke. All of these units are double acting, have multiple airports, mounting locations and available with sensor options for easy interfacing to electrical controls.

AGI supplies a complete range of sophisticated automation products that include: pneumatic parallel grippers, rotary actuators, thrusters, linear actuator slides, mini slides, tool changers, overload devices. The units are available in imperial and metric versions for flexibility and design for a world market.

A Green Explosive Drilling Solution from AutoDrill

Submitted by: on January 20, 2009  


A Green Explosive Drilling Solution from AutoDrillAfter trying a number of methods that didn’t work, the Army used two AutoDrill 2100 series machines to successfully demilitarize over 40,000 rounds of obsolescent tank shells from the Vietnam era. The drills were used to remove pyrotechnic tracer material from the base of the projectile. The resulting inert material comprised several hundred tons of aluminum and steel which were then recycled.

AutoDrill offers free application and design assistance. Free CAD drawings are available for all their equipment.

Please contact AutoDrill for further information.
