pneumatic drive

A pneumatic drive is a mechanical system that uses compressed air to move and operate various machines, devices and mechanical parts. These drives are often used in industry and other applications where precise, reliable and fast movement is required.

The pneumatic drive works as follows:

Air Source: Compressed air is produced using compressors that push air to a certain pressure level.

Pressure regulation: Compressed air passes through pressure regulators that set the desired working pressure for a particular application.

Air line: Compressed air is led through pipes and hoses to pneumatic devices or actuators.

Pneumatic Devices: Pneumatic devices such as pneumatic cylinders, pneumatic motors, pneumatic valves and others are used in pneumatic drive to convert the energy of compressed air into mechanical movement.

Advantages of pneumatic actuators include:

Fast and reliable movement.
Simple movement regulation using pressure regulators.
Safety in explosive or flammable environments because air is used instead of flammable liquids or gases.
Low price and availability of equipment and components.
The possibility of smooth regulation of the speed of movement.
Despite these advantages, pneumatic drives also have several limitations, including the possibility of air leakage, lower accuracy compared to other drive systems, and the need for regular maintenance of compressors and equipment.
