Festo added a space-optimized product – the ultra-compact ADN-S pneumatic cylinder – for performing small movements in tight quarters, and helping machine designers keep their projects as space-efficient as possible.

Festo took the ISO standard ADN double-acting cylinder and shrank the housing length to create a  smaller, lighter weight choice for space-critical applications. It’s smaller than other compact double-acting cylinders for tiny tasks as testing cellphone keys.

ADN-S comes with multiple mounting options and a choice of fixed or no end-position cushioning. A proximity sensor can be added. The piston rod is available with internal or external threading, in diameters 6-60 millimetres and in standard strokes 5-50 mm.

For lithium-ion battery manufacturing, there is a variant which contains only trace amounts of copper, zinc and nickel, metals which cannot be the main constituent of devices used in such applications.
