AB Air Bearings feature a specially shaped stainless steel piston, precisely fitted to a borosilicate glass cylinder, creating a true air bearing airflow effect around the piston. As little as 5 psi applied to the cylinder produces a stiff cushion of air that supports the piston and prevents it from coming in contact with the cylinder wall. The AB Air Bearing provides virtually unlimited piston life, super-clean operation, requires no lubrication, and nearly eliminates friction through the use of ultra-low friction ball joints used to connect the rod. Using “Force Without Friction” technology offers a level of smooth motion and longevity in a pneumatic driving device for applications such as:

  • Precise tensioning of ultra-fine wire, filaments, or fiber
  • 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 such as CMM measurement probes
  • Precise laboratory test equipment for weighing, measuring, tensile strength, deformation, and calibration
