Festo recently released a space-optimized pneumatic cylinder.
The ultra-compact ADN-S performs small movements in tight quarters, helping machine designers keep their projects as space efficient as possible.
Festo took the ISO standard ADN double-acting cylinder and shrank the housing length to create a significantly smaller, lighter weight, and attractively priced choice for space-critical applications. The ADN-S is also smaller than other compact double-acting cylinders, making it ideal for such tasks as testing cellphone keys. For lithium-ion battery manufacturing, there is an ADN-S variant that only contains trace amounts of copper, zinc, and nickel, a requirement for components in battery applications.
ADN-S comes with multiple mounting options and a choice of fixed or no end-position cushioning. A proximity sensor can be added. The piston rod is available with internal or external threading.
