AG-PNE – Air Power

AG-PNE is a high precision pneumatic positioning device.

Pneumatic chambers deform the rotor and allow it to rotate. Such deformation can be imagined as a propagating wave.

The step angle is customizable according to requirements, covering a range from the degree up to the hundredth of degree.

The through hole allow the cables to easly reach and power devices located inside the actuator.

Suitable for the automation industry, this actuator is available in different versions, according to encumbrance and characteristics required: Standard and Micro.
