Pneumatic Spindle Drives

The pneumatic or air motor drive has these advantages:

  • Service supply is simple piping
  • Easy installation, usually by plant personnel
  • Problems are easily diagnosed
  • Compact package size

The pneumatic motor drive has some potential problems.  They are:

  • Large volumes of compressed air may be required

  • Upgrades to the existing pneumatic system may be necessary

  • Unmuffled exhaust is very loud

  • Subject to pressure supply variations

  • System pressure drop should be kept to a minimum

  • Require regular maintenance

Our Engineering Department is very knowledgeable.  We offer free assistance in determining if your system is suitable for a pneumatic drive.
