Knowing where to hunt for business can be a puzzling task. Therefore, we thought it would be beneficial to share yet another "out of the box" Fabco-Air, Inc. success story.

Fabco-Air products are used in a wide range of applications. Conveyor equipment builders regularly turn to Fabco-Air for their most challenging pneumatic applications.

The Engineering and Technical Support Team(s) at Fabco-Air possess an unprecedented amount of Fluid Power problem solving experience. Here is just another example of how the team at Fabco-Air is able to offer a custom solution that fulfills the application requirement perfectly.

This application required a pneumatic linear actuator to operate a sorting device on a conveyor system. The challenge was that the actuator had to maneuver a wide variety of part sizes.

Here is a brief summary of the Fabco-Air solution. A GB Series (block style) pneumatic slide/thruster and a Global Series™ (metric compact) cylinder were combined together to make a 3-position, air-operated device. To expedite the changeover process and to accommodate thickness variations of parts on the conveyor, a Dial-A-Stroke® unit was also added. The Fabco-Air Dial-A-Stroke® enables quick and easy adjustability of the intermediate stroke position (up to 2").
As you can see, the team at Fabco-Air is more than capable of creating solutions for even the most demanding applications.
