AutomationDirect’s line of NITRA pneumatics includes rotary actuators and pneumatic object grippers. NITRA rotary actuators are available in four body sizes with or without shock absorbers. All are double acting and have an adjustable travel range from zero to 190°. Anodized aluminum bodies include integral mounting slots for position switches and a durable ball-bearing hub, and integrated piston magnets are standard. The compact actuators are designed for general material handling and industrial applications such as conveying, clamping, transferring parts, positioning, and controlling valves.
NITRA pneumatic grippers are air-powered actuators with jaws (or fingers) to grasp, hold and release objects. They’re used in a broad range of general automation processes such as pick & place, material transfer, clamping and indexing. Two-jaw parallel and two-jaw angle grippers come in seven body sizes, and with side-mount or end-mount grips. Parallel grippers open and close parallel to the object and angle grippers open wider than parallel jaws, requiring more space. The units are either double-acting, single-acting normally open, or single-acting normally closed.
