PARALLEL ACTUATOR FOR LINEAR RAISING AND LOWERING LOADS
mk Automation, Inc. has announced parallel actuators designed for linear raising and lowering of loads within conveyor systems, providing parallel, right angle or directional load transfer capabilities to suit varying transfer requirements. Installed horizontally to minimize required assembly space, the compact design is said to permit easy integration to existing equipment or specified for OEM applications, such as roller conveyor, box conveyor, pallet conveyor and more. The unit operates on air pressure of 90 psi and features mechanical linkages to translate the horizontal cylinder force into vertical stroke. The cushioned cylinder stroke helps ensure smooth actuator operation for lift and lowering operations. The Model PHM-1 20 offers load capacity up to 44 lb while Model PHM-A 20 handles loads up to 220 lb.
