Airstroke® actuators perform the same type of actuation tasks as a hydraulic or pneumatic cylinder. However, they are best used for applications requiring shorter strokes and higher force. They generally cost less are more durable and, having fewer mechanical parts, require less maintenance. They have long been used in the industrial market as pneumatic actuators and have been incorporated into a wide variety of machinery designs in a vast array of industries.
Other advantages of a flexible walled pneumatic actuator is that it operates well in dirty, corrosive and abrasive environments, easily accepts angular and lateral misalignment and has a high ratio of stroke to collapsed height. Its unique capabilities make it ideal for friction free, leak free, flexible force applications. A wide range of stroke and force configurations are available from standard parts.
