The Airpel Plus line of high-performance, low-friction air-cylinder actuators control ultraprecise movements, including high speeds and extremely short travel distances with clean, long-life pneumatic devices. The inert qualities and tight tolerances of the glass and graphite materials used let users develop systems that will move, hold, or press accurately.

At the core of the new line is the company’s borosilicate glass cylinder and graphite piston technology, but the unit’s piston configuration has been changed to create a product that approaches zero friction — maximum friction levels are approximately 0.5% of load with an operating temperature range of –55 to 150°C. Airpel Plus comes in four standard configurations as single-acting extension models with identical metric sizes, threads, mounts, and strokes as the Airpel- AB. Bore diameter choices of 9, 16, 24, and 32 mm are offered.
