Firestone Solutions for Machinery

Firestone air springs improve countless industries by enabling technology to work more efficiently. We test our products rigorously for durability, high pressure, extreme temperature and more, to foresee issues and exceed expectations for performance. That’s why our Airstroke actuators can withstand challenging environments—from the hot and cold, to pothole-filled roads in deep, and dust-filled mines. Firestone air springs are used to provide force or motion in can making machinery, scissor lifts, shake tables and more.

Our actuation products are used to provide force and motion or support and balance depending on the application. We develop solutions that support machinery, scissors lifts and shake, rattle, roll mounts and more. Air springs can provide the counterbalance force to support the upper platen on can making machinery so that the mechanical drive only needs to do the work of forming the metal—not lifting the platen. The low spring rate of the air springs means greater energy-efficiency. On a scissor lift table air springs allow the manufacturer to offer much longer travel. The high force and lateral or angular compliance allow great flexibility in design. Our Airstroke actuators lift the vibrator and isolate vibrations on shake, rattle and roll mounts.

Airstroke™ Actuators

Airstroke™ Actuators

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.

Airomatic™ Polyactuators

Airomatic™ Polyactuators

Firestone Airomatic Polyactuators has been lab tested for millions cycles without product failure or performance degradation. This part is constructed from two pieces of polyurethane welded together to form a tight, tough seal. This products compact size means increased flexibility for all conveyor designs.  They are ideal for floor-mounted conveyor systems, as other types of springs may require expensive modifications to flooring.
