Hydraulic or pneumatic for applying loads ranging between 500-1000lb
I am finally at senior design and I am looking to use hydraulics or pneumonics to be the driver of my load application system. I have zero experience with either so need some guidance.
The intention is to have a testing device which can apply loads around 500 -1000 pounds. in three directions. I was looking into using pressure as I can have all of them drivin off a single pump.
I have been browsing the interent on the drawbacks of each and I was looking for more advice.
This system has to be small. So i am looking for miniature versions of everything compressor valve switch and linear actuators (with rod locks if using pneumatic).
any thoughts ?
thanks in advance
