Firestone leads the way in manufacturing sophisticated air springs for technologically advanced isolation, actuation and pick-and-place solutions. Firestone Airstroke™ actuators and Airomatic™ polyactuators offer short-stroke, high-force and single-acting pneumatic actuation for applications such as conveyors, lift tables and work holding devices. Isolation control for shaker screens, material feeders and vibrating conveyors are common applications utilizing Airmount™ isolators and Marsh Mellow™ springs.
Firestone Airstroke™ Actuators have long been used in the industrial market as pneumatic actuators incorporated into new and innovative machinery designs as well as replacement actuators for traditional pneumatic or hydraulic cylinders. They have advantages over traditional cylinders in that they are durable, operate well in corrosive and abrasive environments, easily accept misalignment and have a high ratio of stroke to collapsed height.
The Firestone Airomatic™ Polyactuator lifts loads just over 100 pounds with a half-inch stroke at 50 psi and has been lab tested for five million cycles without product failure or performance degradation. It’s constructed from two pieces of polyurethane welded together to form a tight, tough seal. The compact size means increased flexibility for your conveyor designs.
Isolate-to separate, set or keep apart. Firestone Airmount™ Isolators do just that, providing the highest degree of vibration isolation of any isolator on the market. Firestone Airmount Isolators are versatile and not only work to isolate delicate objects from external vibrations, but are able to support vibrating loads and prevent its energy from disturbing the surroundings. Airmount Isolators reduce structural noise, are available in a wide range of sizes, and extend equipment life through their superior isolation capabilities. Airmount Isolators-a great alternative to conventional coil springs and other types of isolators.
Durable, simple to mount, and virtually maintenance free operation-Firestone’s Marsh Mellow™ fabric & rubber springs are your solution to vibration and isolation problems. Marsh Mellow springs are fabric reinforced rubber cylinders that do not require air. They will not break, trap particles, corrode or bottom-out, but will accommodate a wide load range and perform consistently. Replace those old-fashioned steel springs with our tough, quiet Marsh Mellow springs for long lasting, low-cost isolation performance.
Do you need a solution to move objects varying in shape or size? Firestone’s AirPicker™ end effectors offer a wide range of advantages over traditional pick and place devices. By simply controlling the amount of pressure within the bladder, Firestone end-effectors can handle delicate objects with the soft touch of rubber and air. Each of our AirPicker and AirGripper products can work with a wide range of diameters and work piece weights-offering a low cost, durable solution for your pick and place application. Firestone offers a wide range of configurations and sizes of end-effectors to meet your needs.
