This on-demand webinar explores the differences between pneumatic and electric actuators and outline the decision process for successful, efficient, and cost effective deployment. Pneumatics’ performance characteristics, costs and best case application scenarios will be compared to those of electrics. Case studies where pneumatics are preferred to electrics and where electrics are preferred to pneumatics will be analyzed, compared and contrasted. Finally, a pneumatic-electric cost comparison software tool will be presented, an example will be presented using the tool, and the tool is available along with the recording.
