Accurate Force Pneumatics: The Heart of Airpot
One primary objective drives Airpot’s innovative engineering and unique technology: to provide a select family of products specifically tailored to pneumatically control force with amazing precision, repeatability, responsiveness, and resolution. We call this capability “Accurate Force Pneumatics.” Four specialized product groups provide this function and keep us moving as leaders in engineering.
To generate a precise motive or applied force, Airpot Self-Aligning Pneumatic Actuators, Anti-Stiction Airpels, and Zero-Friction Airpel-AB air cylinders provide movement, holding, clamping, and contact forces with amazing accuracy and repeatability over an extreme temperature range. And they can respond with resolutions of less than ½ gram. In fact, the unique Airpel-AB even provides a driving force and air-bearing grade smoothness simultaneously!
When there is the need to reduce or eliminate harmful or excessive motion, velocity or impact, adjustable Airpot Dashpots and Snubbers use ambient air to precisely and accurately control force, oscillation, and shock with long life and sensitive response to force inputs.
The ultra-low friction, close-fitting moving parts of our precision Piston/Cylinder sets and Self-Aligning Actuators enable the precise dispensing of small volumes of air perfect for pumping and flow applications. Clever engineers also find they make ideal building blocks for specialized linear bearings, displacement indicators, and other sliding/driving devices — all without requiring any lubrication, seals or maintenance.
Airpot’s sleek, new GramForce® grippers provide unprecedented force accuracy with almost no measurable friction and a gentle grip for the most delicate operations. They operate with the slightest force and offer precise holding pressures for even the most fragile materials.
From the 1950s forward, Airpot Corporation has led the world in the innovative manufacture of precision air damping dashpots. Their wide range of uses includes damping shock, vibration and oscillation; controlling velocity in solenoids, spring-loaded mechanisms, and free falling parts; and mechanical time delay.
1994 marked the introduction of another revolutionary pneumatic product line: the Airpel® Anti-Stiction® Air Cylinder. Based on the Airpot dashpot’s unique piston/cylinder technology, the Airpel line created a new category of air cylinders combining unparalleled ultra-smooth motion with instrument-class performance. Airpel air cylinders are used as pneumatic actuators, counterbalances, and force providers for holding, bending, pushing, and clamping mechanisms.
All Airpot Corp. products excel where low friction/low hysteresis, sensitive response, long life, clean operation, and extreme temperatures are high-priority application requirements. Airpot products happily need no piston seals, lubrication or maintenance. And all are made in America, 100%.
Unwavering devotion to application engineering, customer service, product quality, and on-time delivery? Yes — it forms the foundation of Airpot Corp’s continuing success as a trusted supplier to many of the world’s most prestigious OEMs.
