PHD: Pneumatic thruster slide
The Optimax Series OSD Pneumatic Thruster Slide from PHD, first in the company’s Optimax Series, is a robust linear actuator available in ¾-in., 1 1/8-in., and 2-in. bore sizes, and offers standard travel lengths ranging from 1-in. to 10-in.
The Series OSD features oversized guide shafts to provide maximum rigidity with minimum deflection. Urethane shock pads on extend and retract directions provide vibrational damping and minimize impact forces. To simplify installation and provide for interchangeability, the OSD features a tool plate for mounting of tooling or other actuators.
The OSD Series is the lower-priced alternative to the company’s Series SD Pneumatic Thruster Slide, which has more options and a longer cycle life.
