PX22 Nitpicker Actuator

PX22 nitpicker actuator


The PX22 nitpicker actuator features a rotary section similar to our X22 Indexing Actuator coupled with a linear cylinder to produce independently controlled linear and indexing motion of the rod. With standard linear strokes up to 12 inches, optional rod ends, and tie rod construction, the PX22 is an extremely versatile actuator. This actuator can be used to move multiple parts by lifting them from one station and placing them on another for simultaneous processing.
