The Firestone Airomatic™ Polyactuators can exert forces of more than 45kN at just 3.5 bar yet last for millions of cycles in demanding industrial environments.
Originally designed for the conveyor industry, Airomatic™ applications include transfer sections and roller brakes, but can be used in almost any industrial actuation application requiring very small pressure and stroke.
The Firestone 70-P-13 Airomatic™ Polyactuator range – the most compact pneumatic actuator range Air Springs Supply has ever introduced to Australia – is one of the latest and smallest members of a Firestone actuator and isolator family that includes Airstroke® actuators and Airmount® isolators in individual stroke capacities up to 40,000 kg and measuring up to a metre across.
The tiny Airomatic, with a diameter of just 76mm, is just as tough as its larger counterparts. Fabricated of moulded plastic elements welded together in a sealed unit, it is easily customizable to meet specific sizes and shapes for a wide variety of materials handling and processing applications.
"Firestone developed the Airomatic Polyactuators to satisfy the need for very small spaces and light forces," said Air Springs Supply National Manager Mr Simon Agar.
"These highly compact actuators have no pistons, rods or sliding seals, so friction, bending, scoring and wear are not a concern. Firestone engineered these actuators to be as robust and reliable as their larger air springs, which have been proven over decades in Australian industrial environments. They will last for literally millions of cycles without product failure or performance degradation."
Firestone Industrial Products (for which Air Springs is Australian national distributor) manufactures the world’s best-selling air spring range. Its Airstroke® actuators and Airmount® isolators are used in materials handling applications worldwide.
