Festo’s NFPA-compliant DSNB actuator suited to wide range of mounting, lifting and clamping applications.
Festo introduced its DSNB, a NFPA-compliant pneumatic actuator that’s suited to multiple applications including sorting, stacking, and insertion, as well as lifting, clamping and for gate applications. The actuator comes in seven bore sizes, 11 variations, and 15 NFPA mounting configurations. It features a polyurethane rod-wiper seal, a hard anodized aluminum cylinder and synthetic grease. It also comes with anodized aluminum end caps, a high strength steel piston rod with chrome plating, and composite rod bushing and PTFE wear band. The actuator’s rod bearing cartridge can be replaced without disassembling the cylinder. Customers have the option of air cushioning and customizing these units.
