An existing pneumatic actuator, designed for much higher loads than our customer, a major producer of semiconductors, required was repurposed for a new application. As a result, the stroke delivered by the part was not smooth under lower-force conditions. In addition, the high-capacity actuator—a sub-optimal solution—was proportionately costly.
The environment and processing chemistries in this new application presented additional challenges for materials, assembly, and operation/useful life.
