ContiTech North America is pleased to announce that a new air spring product offering is available for its industrial customers in the NAFTA region.
ContiTech’s existing C-series now includes the XXL type air actuators that provide high output forces and extremely low minimum design heights.
We are pleased to bring this product line expansion to North America because it broadens our ability to solve customer issues involving design parameters, said Douglas Duesing, product manager, Industrial Air Springs. The ContiTech XXL actuator provides a minimum height as low as 4.72” (120 mm) and a maximum recommended operating height of 27.6” (700 mm). It also has a diameter at this height of 25.2” (640 mm) and offers a force of just less than 9 tons or 17,984 lbs. (80 kN) at 87 psi (6 bar).
With the large C-types, tilt angles of up to 30 degrees are also possible, without any need for special mounting accessories associated with pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders. The rodless construction provides a frictionless function without rod wipers and piston seals, thereby preventing wear and being incredibly resistant to elements found in harsh environments common to heavy duty applications. The simple design allows for cost-effective solutions in applications requiring high force output with minimum mounting height, such as lift tables used in automotive, material handling, food processing and other industrial manufacturing environments.
