Operating instructions

The use of our products in a system is the responsibility of the person who designed the system and defined its characteristics and must therefore comply with the following instructions:

  • All our motorised products must be installed in a secure environment. (e.g: protective cover, detection barrier, etc…)
  • In the event of maintenance or manual operation, special attention must be paid to moving parts. (e.g: risk of pinching, shock, etc…)
  • Only persons trained in the use of pneumatic equipment may work on a system using compressed air. The characteristics of the technical documentation must be respected. (e.g: speed, load, temperature, fluid, pressure of fluid, etc…)
  • Products must be secured correctly and guarantee this attachment in time. (e.g: vibrations, alternating forces, etc…)
  • No modifications must be made to our products without our authorisation. (e.g: machining, removal of parts, etc…)
  • Do not scratch or score the guides and cylinder rods. (e.g: columns, sliders, guideways, cylinder rods, etc…)
  • Follow the special instructions. (e.g: use of a gripper page M3-001)

Lifetime

The lifetime of our products depends on their use, the environment and the load factor. However, under normal operating conditions, the lifetime is as follows:

  • Grippers : 5 to 15 million cycles
  • Rotary : 10 to 15 million cycles (excluding shock absorbers: 1 to 5 million cycles)
  • Linear : 2 to 200 millions metres variable depending on the type of guide and use: horizontal or vertical axis (excluding shock absorbers: 1 to 5 million cycles excluding standard cylinders: refer to manufacturer)
