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 Actuators more Actuators

Firestone Airstroke™ actuators are ideal replacements for existing applications that had previously used traditional pneumatic or hydraulic cylinders. These are flexible walled pneumatic actuators that are durable and operate well in corrosive and abrasive industrial environments, easily accepts misalignment, and has a high ratio of stroke to collapsed height.

End effectorsFirestone End Effectors more

These end effectors offer the user a wide range of advantages over traditional pick and place work holding devices. Simply by varying the air pressure in the picker or gripper, the user can conform the end effector to the diameter that is being handled and the force being applied to the workpiece. This is especially critical in applications with sensitive, thin-walled, or fragile objects. The object being picked up does not have to have a circular configuration. Since it has an elastomer bladder construction, it will conform to any shape.

Marsh Mellow Spring

A Marsh Mellow™ spring is a fabric reinforced rubber cylinder. A main advantage of a Marsh Mellow™ spring over an air spring in isolation applications is a Marsh Mellow™ spring does not require air.

PolyactuatorsFirestone Polyactuators more

The Airomatic™ polyactuator product line is fabricated of molded plastic elements welded together in a sealed unit. It is easily customizable to meet specific sizes and shapes for a wide variety of applications. Originally designed for the conveyor industry, the actuators assist in conveyor transfer sections and roller brakes, but can be used in almost any application requiring very small pressure and stroke.
