Product Features

Adsens Technology, Inc. Product Features

Airpel Anti-Stiction® Air Cylinder eliminates perceptible stiction and reduces running friction to ultra low levels imparting smoother motion than any other cylinder.

The unique seal-less construction and combination of materials allow unsurpassed longevity, high cycle rates without lubricants, smooth operation at extreme temperatures, and instrument quality performance for low to medium force and energy levels.

Common Applications:

  • Semiconductor & IC processing equipment
  • Web/wire/filament tension controls
  • Test & measurement instruments
  • Automated medical analyzers
  • Dispensing & vending machines
  • High capacity mail & cash handling equipment
Adsens Technology, Inc. Product Features

Airpel-AB® Air Bearing Cylinder is a unique new air cylinder featuring Force Without Friction® air bearing technology. This cylinder is a pneumatic driving device that takes air-powered motin to an incredible level of smoothness, cleanliness and unsurpassed longevity.

The specially shaped stainless steel piston is precisely fitted to the glass cylinder to create a true air bearing airflow effect. The new design provides a virtually unlimited piston cycle life with super-clean operation and no required lubrication.

Common Applications:

  • Precise tensioning of ultra-fine wire, filaments or fibers
  • Positioning mechanisms supporting delicate materials, optics or liquids
  • Super-sensitive force control for holding or clamping fragile materials, wafer dicing or polishing
  • Counterbalancing and safety support for vertically positioned linear motor driven masses
  • Precise laboratory test equipment for weighing, measuring and calibrating
Adsens Technology, Inc. Product Features

Airpot® Precision Dashpots reduce velocity, vibration and oscillation in dynamic mechanisms where smooth, near friction-free motion is critical. This is accomplished by using a piston to force ambient air through an orifice at a controlled rate to dissipate kinetic energy.

Airpot Dashpots prevent damage to sensitive equipment, reducing impact noise and wear. Dashpots also provide simple, low cost, adjustable speed control without external power as well as non-electrical timing capability.

Common Applications:

  • Any application where these conditions are present:
    • where smooth, near friction-free motion is critical
      where responsiveness to low forces/low kinetic energy levels is required
    • where equipment is sensitive and precise
      where clean operation is important
    • where cycle rates are high or life span needs to be long
    • where reliability is critical
    • where temperatures are extreme or environments are humid
    • where high quality is a product feature
    • where non-electrical motion control is advantageous
