The Cyclone Cable Piston can now push and pull with true backlash free properties. With this new architecture upgrade, we chose to cross pollinate this actuator outside of the Robotics space. Going after the existing pneumatic power tool market will be an excellent way to benchmark this new actuators abilities amongst existing products. First attempts were met with success when compressing a half gallon tank up to 100 P.S.I at 1.5 SCFM. Targeted to be a trim compressor, the cyclone also brings some unique benefits to the customer such as a lightweight structure with a quiet operation mode.
