Airpot introduces its updated website at www.airpot.com with all the latest Airpot low- and zero – friction actuators, air cylinders, dashpots, piston – cylinder sets, snubbers, air treatment components, and optimized systems.
The new site includes detailed specifications and information on Airpot’s Accurate Force Pneumatics (AFP) packages. These optimized systems aid design engineers in selecting and specifying the components necessary to design accurate pneumatic force control systems combining clean regulated air, proportional pressure control, and precise actuation at a lower cost than purchasing the components individually . Airpot AFPs help designers utilize Airpot’s line of highly accurate self-aligning actuators, Airpel Anti-Stiction cylinders, and Airpot –AB zero friction air cylinder actuators in applications in which the need exists to move, hold, support or press with repeatable and accurate low force over a wide temperature range without lubrication and with nearly unlimited life. The site further addresses the system components needed from the initial air supply devices to the pressure regulation products and finally the actuators providing the accurate force desired. The AFP Selection Guide page enables designers to choose from among a variety of Airpot air supply products including Airpot’s double filter / regulators (FFR) to supply clean, dry filtered air. Also included are products for proportional pneumatic pressure regulation to precisely control the output pressure being supplied to the system actuators. Airpot’s wide variety of air actuators complete the system with low – and zero-friction models available. Airpot optimized system components are matched to insure optimum performance and lowest cost, so OEM designers and engineers involved in research and development, high level testing, high tech micro machining, polishing or grinding equipment or precision assembly will find pre-selected systems components providing most of the functions needed between the air supply and the force output system. Actuation objectives can be achieved while saving research and development time.
Airpot.com includes improved functionality so designers can configure 3D CAD files of non-stock products with construction requirements specially tailored to the application. With only a few clicks, changes to length, travel, rod end style, mounting configurations, and more are easily input into the online configurator yielding detailed STEP files for download into the user’s CAD system within seconds. CAD files and custom part numbers are generated “on the fly” from base parameter files quickly accessed via a proprietary in-house system developed specifically for Airpot products Products are easily searchable within the site by part number, product attributes, and/or capability. Engineers will find products that damp motion, actuate with air or vacuum, sense piston position , apply a precision force, pump or pulse air, sense indicate or relieve pressure, and filter / regulate an air supply. Included are a host of frequently asked questions reflecting 50 years of product and industrial application knowledge. Convenient pop up boxes offer helpful technical assistance to explain the function, operation, and dimensions of the part or configuration being viewed.
Access contact information for all Airpot distributors and technical sales representatives worldwide though the Distributors and Reps area. A highlight of the new site is Airpot’s free sample program that allows designers to request and evaluate the motion control product type they need with no cost or obligation.
