Pneumatic transmission system components
(1) Air source device. The air source device converts the mechanical energy provided by the prime mover into the pressure energy of the gas to provide compressed air to the system. It is mainly composed of an air compressor, and is also equipped with auxiliary equipment such as a gas storage tank and a gas source purification device.
(2) Actuator. The actuator acts as an energy converter to convert the pressure energy of the compressed air into the mechanical energy of the working device. Its main form is cylinder output linear reciprocating mechanical energy, swing cylinder and air motor output rotary swing and rotary mechanical energy respectively. For systems with vacuum pressure as the power source, vacuum suction cups are used to complete various lifting operations.
(3) Control elements. The control element is used to control and control the pressure, flow and flow direction of the compressed air, allowing the system actuator to operate according to the functional requirements of the program and performance. According to different completion functions, there are many types of control components. The pneumatic transmission system generally includes four types of control components: pressure, flow, direction and logic.
(4) Auxiliary components. Auxiliary components are various pneumatic components required for internal lubrication of components, exhaust noise, connection between components, and signal conversion, display, amplification, detection, etc., such as oil misters, mufflers, pipe fittings and pipe joints, converters, Display, sensor, etc.
