Isotech Offers New Frictionless Air Bearing Cylinders for High-Precision Positioning Applications

January 24th, 2008 |

The new AB Air Cylinder, offered by Isotech Inc., uses a technology called force without friction, which is made possible through the use of a zero friction bearing piston. Friction is reduced by a factor of 1000 as compared to other low-friction air cylinders. The air cylinder uses pressurized air to create a true air bearing effect around the cylinder's piston. This air cylinder is for high precision linear motion and positioning applications where friction, contamination, wear, and temperature vulnerability is of prime concern.

Isotech’s “Stiction-free” Air Cylinders Provide Smooth Precise Motion Control at Ultra-low Pressures

January 15th, 2007 |

HATFIELD, Pa - Isotech Inc., today, announced the offering of a line of air cylinders that are specifically designed for precision applications and all but eliminate "stiction." Stiction, which is a notorious affliction with typical air cylinders, causes the piston to stick at the beginning of a stroke, resulting in an erratic breakaway motion.
