Hanover, Germany – ContiTech has broadened its range of fixed-connection air actuators with the addition of larger dimension products, with a diameter of up to 570 mm.
Dr Olaf Kluth, head of industrial applications at ContiTech air spring systems, said that the new ‘XXL’ actuators for the company’s C series can be used in places where forces in access of 100kN are required.
“Our customers benefit in particular from the easy assembly of this functional pneumatic module,” Klath said.
ContiTech added that with the large actuators, tilt angles of up to 30° are possible. It noted that the rodless construction functions without friction seals thereby preventing a stick-slip effect.
In addition to the C series, the ContiTech product range also includes removable air actuators (D types), actuators with bead ring connecting parts (R series) and tube air actuators with plastic connecting parts (S series).
