Mechanical Engineering & Automation


Size, weight and power are critical drivers in the choice of motors for automated production lines.
In addition to the environmental requires (e.g. ATEX, water, humidity and dust), air motors are typically the motors of choice for robotic tools.

While process automation devices, such as robotic arms, make use of electric motors for core displacement and positioning, typically pneumatic drives are used for reach functions, such as drilling or screwing, to avoid excessive weight on arms etc.
Magnevane technology delivers the same capacity as traditional air motors but from lighter and smaller units and with reduced inputs (CFM).
Magnevane technology delivers more torque than similar sized traditional air motors which generates improved performance for applications such as conveyor belts.
The flipside of this is that Magnevane powered motors are smaller and lighter than traditional air motors for a particular output. This is critical for applications where air motor size and weight are significant constraints on process efficiency.
In all industry applications, Magnevane’s technology significantly improves the reliability of air motors, through its simple design and reduction in mechanical parts for controlling vanes, thus contributing for reduced downtimes and maintenance costs. .
