What is the Acorn range of pneumatic products?

Applications of Pneumatics

Pneumatic systems have wide and versatile applications in industries. They power tools, automate machinery, and control processes in manufacturing, automotive, food processing, and healthcare. 

It is usefully applied to a great extent for jobs that are related to fast motion, precision, and safety in applications such as assembly lines, packaging, and medical devices.


Pneumatics vs Hydraulics

Although pneumatic and hydraulic systems are both concerned with power transmission, the differences in their use and advantages are enormous. Pneumatics use compressed air; thus, they are suitable for applications that require cleanliness and lightweight operations, like food processing and pharmaceuticals. 

Hydraulics, using pressurised liquids, are preferred where heavy-duty applications requiring higher force and precise control are needed, such as in construction machinery and industrial presses.

Pneumatics FAQs

What is pneumatics in simple terms?

Pneumatics is a technology that uses compressed air to transfer and control energy; it can power a wide array of hand tools and machinery used in industry.

Why use pneumatics instead of electric?

Pneumatics are principally preferred to electric drive systems for applications with rapid, continuous movement that requires durability and safety in possibly explosive surroundings.

What is the purpose of a pneumatic system?

A pneumatic system entails the use of compressed air to power and control machinery and tools, providing efficient and reliable operation.

Is pneumatic stronger than electric?

Pneumatic systems are not necessarily superior to electric systems, but are preferred only due to speed, safety, and appropriateness to many working environments.
