Actuators - Rotary Actuators

Rotary actuators come in two types: Rack & Pinion and Vane styles.  When the application calls for rotational motion less than one revolution, rotary cylinders can mount right at the equipment joint without taking up space with long stroke lengths, which would be required to do the same job with a linear cylinder.  SMC's pneumatic rotary actuator units can achieve arc lengths of  90°, 180°, 190°, or even 270°, depending on the configuration.

The 25A- series variations are designed using material compatible with secondary battery applications and are able to be used in low dew point environments.  The variations eliminate copper (Cu) and zinc (Zn) material where possible, making them compatible with secondary battery manufacturing for electronics, automotive, and other vehicle types.
