aim fluid control represents airpower actuators. This company is proud of the new quarter-turn actuator twintorque®. This is a new concept in the field of drives. They have 30 years of experience in the field of actuator technology and peripheral accessories and automation & process engineering. We are therefore proud that we can work with a company like this and can offer these products to you.
Get more results with airpower: a technical and high-quality product, designed and produced according to international standards. Based on these standards, we can guarantee absolute quality at all times. We are happy to inform you about the most important advantages and applications of the twintorque® actuator. You can read more about this innovative actuator on the airpower website.
The pneumatic actuators from airpower are visualized in the images below. On the basis of these illustrations we explain how these actuators work. When pressure is exerted on opening "2", both pistons move from their basic position of 0° and move to 90 ° switching position. The power of the pistons is then transferred to pinion "C" via the rack. If the pistons get pressure through opening "4", then both pistons move back together to basic position 0 °.
In a pressureless state, the angular displacement of both end positions can be adjusted by the set screws "B" and "F" between + 5 ° and -5 °
The lock nuts A ensure that the new position can be secured.
In a pressureless state, the nominal rotation angle in the switched position can be adjusted with the set screws "E" between + 5 ° and -30 °.
The lock nuts "D" ensure that the new position can be secured.
airpower has released two different pneumatic actuators: single-acting and double-acting actuators. When the pressure is exerted on opening "2", both pistons move against the spring pressure from the 0 ° basic position to the 90 ° switching position. When the pressure in the inner chamber escapes through opening "2", the springs push the pistons back to the basic position of 0°. The number of springs, often 4 to 12, must be adjusted in advance to the control pressure and the desired torque.
In a pressureless state, the angular rotation of both end positions can be adjusted by the set screws "B" and "F" between + 5 ° and -5 °. The lock nuts "A" ensure that the new position can be secured.
With stroke limitation, the non-pressurized state can be adjusted to the nominal rotation angle in the switched position with the set screws "E" between + 5 ° and -3 ° o. The types APD / APS-050-210 have a stroke limit adjustment in one direction as standard. This means that they can open or close. The "D" lock nuts ensure that the new position can be insured. The end position and stroke limit are the same for both single-acting and double-acting airpower actuators.
The airpower actuator has several advantages. For example, the single-acting and double-acting actuators have the same dimensions, with a swivel angle of 90° to 180°. The rotation angle of both actuators is adjustable from 180° to 120°. But there's more:
The same size for the double and single-acting actuators with a swivel angle of 90 °. 180 ° rotation angle adjustable from 180 ° to 120 °.
The position indicator is mounted on the actuator in such a way that it does not interfere with the NAMUR interface, according to VDI / VDE 3847.
Approximately two independently functioning settings can be adjusted individually in a range of + 5 ° to -5 ° on the APD / APS-040-350 screw types.
In addition to the final position of the twintorque°, the APD / APS-050-210 types have a stroke limit adjustment in one direction (open or close) as standard. This means that the nominal rotation angle can be adjusted within a range of + 5 ° or -30 °
