AutomationDirect adds NITRA Pneumatic Rotary Actuators & Grippers

Cumming, GA --- September 7, 2017 ... AutomationDirect's line of NITRA® pneumatics now includes rotary actuators and pneumatic grippers.

NITRA rotary actuators are available in four body sizes with or without shock absorbers. All are double acting and have an adjustable travel range from zero to 190 degrees. Anodized aluminum bodies include integral mounting slots for position switches and a durable ball bearing hub and integrated piston magnets are standard. The compact design of the NITRA rotary actuators is ideal for general material handling and other industrial applications such as conveying, clamping, transferring parts, positioning, and controlling valves. NITRA rotary actuators start at $190.00 and are backed by a two year warranty.

NITRA Pneumatic Grippers are compressed air actuators with jaws (or fingers) to pick up, hold and release objects and are used in a broad range of general automation processes such as pick & place, material transfer, clamping and indexing.

Two jaw parallel and two jaw angle NITRA grippers are available in seven body sizes and with side mount or end mount grips. Parallel grippers open and close parallel to the object and angle (or angular) grippers open wider than parallel jaws requiring more space.

NITRA Pneumatic Grippers are either double-acting, single-acting normally open, or single-acting normally closed. Anodized aluminum bodies include integral mounting slots for position switches. NITRA Grippers are priced from $67.00 and also have a two year warranty.
