Automate 2024 Product Spotlight: Nason’s Switches, Cylinders and Transducers Come Standard or Customized

June 3, 2024
The company offers switches, space-efficient cylinders and state-of-the art transducers. If they do not have what is needed in stock, they will build it in their South Carolina facility.

Among a range of components that Nason had on display at its Automate 2024 booth were its CR series stainless steel pneumatic cylinders (pictured above). Designed for smooth startup and operation, the cylinders are constructed with low-friction Nitrile seals and factory lubricated with FDA-complaint food-grade PTFE-impregnated grease, the stainless steel cylinders’ precision-machined components and low-friction bearings ensure long life and effortless operation.

The stainless steel in the CR Series is non-porous and resistant to corrosion, making them ideal for applications that require strict compliance to purity and quality standards, such as pharmaceutical and food preparation, or areas that need to stand up to punishing elements, like wash-down environments.

Nason's Danny Dehler also showed Machine Design its line of compact transducers, which range from basic temperature transducers to customized wireless pressure transducers. Hydraulic and pneumatic designs with accuracy ranges of 1%, 0.4% and 0.25%, and 0.15% and vacuum ranges up to 10,000 psi serve a host of industrial applications.

The company offers automated assembly machines/systems, sensors and sensor integrated systems as well as design, engineering and support services.
