Pick & Place Actuators
Basic pick & place actuators combine a rotary section with a linear cylinder to provide independently-controlled linear and rotary motion. These actuators are also known as multi-motion actuators, and even though their rotary sections provide rotary motion, they can also provide stepping motion in certain sizes (contact us for more information). All Rotomation pick & place actuators feature black-anodized aluminum bodies, stressproof steel rods, ball bearings, and stainless steel hardware.
Common Options: two rod types, 1 or 2" long stop tube on linear section, auxiliary shaft, adjustable rotation, bumpers, integrated flow control or cushion needle valve, high-temperature seals, mount plates, magnetic switches for position feedback, and various port locations.
Standard rod strokes: from 0.50" to 12.00", in 0.25" increments.
Dual rack actuators have the additional advantages of double torque and zero lash at the ends of the rotation without increasing the footprint of the actuator. All construction features and options available on single rack tie rod actuators are also available on dual rack actuators.
