Festo adds a new space-optimized product to its line of pneumatic cylinders ‒ the ultra-compact ADN-S – for performing small movements in tight quarters and, in so doing, helping machine designers keep their projects as space-efficient as possible.
Festo took the ISO standard ADN double-acting cylinder and shrank the housing length to create a significantly smaller, lighter weight, and attractively priced choice for space-critical applications. The ADN-S is also smaller than other compact double-acting cylinders, making it ideal for such tasks as testing cellphone keys. For lithium-ion battery manufacturing, there is an ADN-S variant that only contains trace amounts of copper, zinc, and nickel, a requirement for components in battery applications.
ADN-S comes with multiple mounting options and a choice of fixed or no end-position cushioning. A proximity sensor can be added. The piston rod is available with internal or external threading, in diameters 6 … 60 mm and in standard strokes 5 … 50 mm.
The ADN-S joins the Festo DSNU-S round cylinder, a space-optimized version of the ISO DSNU round air actuated cylinder, in meeting the demand for small drive components that can perform with the same reliability, consistency, and durability of the larger cylinders from which they are derived. ADN-S, like DSNU-S, ADN, and DSNU cylinders, are part of Festo’s Core Range of widely applied products that are always in stock and ready for shipping throughout North America.
