Technigrams provide detailed technical information on Airstroke® and Airmount® products. Use Firestone products to solve a wide range of actuation and isolation problems. These problem solvers demonstrate unique air spring applications that may help you resolve a problem. They are also useful as ideas generators for air spring technology.
Air Blast Generator
An Airstroke actuator is used to create an air blast into the bridged material to dislodge it.
Check Valve Lapping
An Airstroke® actuator is used to raise the valve seat into contact with the ball lap, and a rotary table turns the actuator counterclockwise to duplicate the oscillating motion.
An Airstroke actuator exerts pressure, spreads clamping arms into the coils, and holds the coil firmly at top and bottom during processing.
Conveyor System: Actuated-hinged Drive Table
Two Airstroke actuators raise the drive chain into contact with the materials, lifting them up and off the rollers for easy and efficient transfer.
Conveyor System – Vertically Actuated
Four Airstroke actuators raise the drive chain into contact with the materials, lifting them up and off the conveyor.
An Airstroke actuator is used to provide adjustable down-pressure in compliance with the variation of the ground.
A system of timing belts and pulleys powered by a 1725 rpm motor operate four Airstroke actuators featuring custom end plates with two 1/2″ BSP ports.
A liquid-filled Airstroke actuator system using an air-over-water reservoir requires only an air supply to complete the installation.
Airmount isolators positioned at the rear and/or mid-section of the bike frame to cushion, absorb and isolate impact and vibration.
Perfect Bound Magazine Cutter
A magazine is moved into position under a blade. An Airstroke actuator extends to move the blade, cutting off the glue joint.
Airstroke actuators are used to provide the structural support for the system’s drive assembly.
Pipe Weld Clamp
Small Airstroke actuators are positioned on a core. When inflated, the actuators extend four clamp shoes to the pipe’s sides and hold the pipe tight.
Power Transmission System
An Airstroke actuator used between the V-belt pulley and the shiftable part inflates, thus allowing engagement and power transfer.
Utilize an Airstroke actuator between the joint and end tooling to provide the force and multi-directional compliance when needed during a collision.
Screening Machine Cover Clamp
The use of Airstroke® actuators on lid brackets to help achieve optimum sealing and move-resistance.
Self Aligning Device
A system designed to mechanically compensate for lack of alignment.
Sheet Welding Clamp
To replace the C-clamp method, a pneumatic clamp was designed utilizing an Airstroke actuator and corrugated jaws.
Shock Absorber Test
An Airstroke actuator is mounted horizontally to produce and maintain the specified degree of side load on the absorber during its axial test cycle.
Two Airstroke actuators are used to adjust the angle of the collection panels, permitting accurate solar tracking. Pneumatic
Swash Plate Motor
Develop a reliable and low maintenance swash plate motor.
Synthetic Marble Mould Clamp
Four Airstroke actuators are used with a simple bridge clamp.
Firestone air springs are used for both actuation and isolation purposes. The air springs inflate to lift the container from the rollers and, while inflated, isolate the vibration.
Wave Power Module
Four Airstroke actuators are used in combination below the water’s surface.
