Electro Pneumatic Positioners

Bimba Electro Pneumatic Positioner

Bimba Electro Pneumatic Positioner

Bimba's Position Feedback Products are ideal for applications that require accurate measuring or closed loop positioning. They enable machines to adapt to changes on the fly, automate setup, and speed up and simplify process changes.

Position Feedback Cylinders are available in reciprocating or rotary models. They may be used with our PCS control for closed loop positioning, our DPM for precise measuring, or our electronic controller

Skeans Pneumatic LPS (Linear Positioning System)

Skeans Pneumatic LPS (Linear Positioning System) LPS Series

Our own Skeans' Pneumatic Linear Positioning System is designed for use in resource industries that require linear positioning technology, but may not require the accuracy achieved by a costly and complex motion control system. Our system uses the Nopak SG heavy-duty air cylinder construction. The cylinder is available in a variety of styles and bores, with accuracies of 0.05" or better to support numerous industry protocols. It integrates FC-2 Electronics Module and employs Fuzzy Logic to interpret both the feedback from the cylinder and the user's desired cylinder position to control standard MAC valves which are used to position the cylinder
