PHD often surprise people with some of the Unique Solutions that they develop, but these types of custom products are a major part of their business. In fact they have a whole section of the business dedicated to it, called the Unlimited Engineering Group and named to reinforce the notion that we should have unlimited thinking in terms of their capability.
A great example of their producing unusual product is the recent release of a volumetric pump. Not something that you would typically think of an actuator manufacturer for. However, there are a lot of comparisons. Volumetric pumps resemble a pneumatically operated syringe (or pneumatic cylinder).
You may have these pumps in assembly areas where they need to dispense an accurate volume of a liquid such as adhesive, lubrication, or medications. One of our first pumps was used to dispense honey. PHD has done various versions of plastic, stainless steel, and quick change volumetric pumps. The volumes and other specifications can vary. With PHD, you have access to much more than traditional actuators thanks to our Unlimited Unique Solutions®.
