Self-aligning rod capability distinguishes Airpots’s series of custom Self-Aligning Pneumatic Actuators. The use of low friction ball joints at the piston and rod end creates a self-aligning capability for the piston reducing side loads and assuring greater life. Piston rod configurations as well as stroke, mounting length, protective case and other non-standard parts and designs are available in this series. Custom Self-Aligning Pneumatic Actuators make accurate force actuation and uniform motion with slow, smooth movement possible, even over distances less than 0.01 inch, or cycle rates at very high speeds up to 10 cps or more.
