How Airpot Measures Friction in their Airpel Plus Air Cylinders

We at Airpot make three different low friction air cylinder lines under the Airpel name. Many customers have asked us how we measure the friction in these cylinders. Today, we’re going to explain how friction is measured in our Airpel Plus air cylinders. The Airpel (or standard Airpel) is a low friction air cylinder available […]

Piston Leak and Dimensional Stability

One of the ways our air cylinders have such low friction is that the Airpot (and Airpel) pistons are fit to the cylinder with clearance and therefore, there are no true seals. However, this means that whenever there is a pressure difference that there will be a non-zero flow of the fluid from the high […]

WATER ACTUATED CYLINDER IN SEMI-CONDUCTOR WAFER ELEVATOR APPLICATION

An important high technology manufacturer builds processing equipment used in the fabricating of semiconductor integrated circuits. One operation in their chemical / mechanical polisher (CMP) involves lowering a cassette of silicon wafers into a rinse tank, then raising it. This sounds simple enough but a cassette can contain as many as 25 wafers etched […]

Anti-Stiction Air Cylinder Improves Membrane Switch Testing

An Air cylinder that uses a carbon /graphite piston within a glass housing produces precise and repeatable motion during membrane switch testing. A precision low friction cylinder with a piston that slides on a cushion of air is being used to provide reciprocating motion in membrane switch test systems. An Airpel air cylinder, produced […]
