Pneumatic actuators are devices that position control valves using linear motion by converting various forms of energy, typically air pressure, into mechanical energy. In general, pneumatic actuators are affordable, have rapid response times and are simple and easy to control; however, they are also noisy, and their position is difficult to control.
There are many different types of pneumatic actuators, including tie rod cylinders, grippers and pneumatic artificial muscles, but the main type of pneumatic linear actuator is a pneumatic valve actuator. One important feature of a pneumatic actuator is the addition of a controller.
