PHD is a leading manufacturer of electric, pneumatic and hydraulic industrial automation actuators, designed to help companies across all industries optimize their manufacturing processes. Our products consist of a full line of cylinders, escapements, grippers, linear slides, rotary actuators, clamps, multi-motion actuators, switches and sensors.
PHD Clamps offer very low cost of ownership, exceptional flexibility, and are unsurpassed in ruggedness. Units are offered in two sizes, four jaw styles, and five jaw opening increments to fit a wide range of applications. A wide selection of modular jaw tips are also offered.
PHD offers a wide range of cylinders. Ranging from Tom Thumb Cylinders, known for durability and versatility, to Compact Cylinders where space is critical. PHD also offers the industry standard Series CV Cylinders design for long travel lengths.
For applications requiring the individual release of parts from vibratory feeders, hoppers, or magazines, pneumatically powered escapements are ideal. Models are available with switches for easy interface with various electronic controls.
PHD's Grippers can be used for internal and external gripping and come in a variety of jaw styles to adapt to any application. Grippers range from miniature series to heavy duty series capable of more than 1600 pounds of grip force.
Multi-Motion Actuators provide rotary and linear motion from one output shaft. The reach-and-turn motions are independent from one another, making it easy to sequence the two motions. The Multi-Motion is ideal for part turnaround and orientation operations.
PHD offers a complete line of Rotary Actuators with a wide range of options. Our pneumatic and hydraulic rack-and-pinion Rotary Actuators are available in miniature series as well as larger series for applications requiring up to 31,000 in-LB of torque.
PHD Powered Slides include cantilever and saddle types, and operate using air, air/oil, or electric power sources. PHD offers over ten different series of slides designed to handle loads ranging from a few ounces up to 300 pounds.
