Industrial Air Foil Fans materials by skilled, experienced craftsmen for reliability and longevity. This level of quality is a result of ongoing research and testing in Robinson's own lab facilities. Robinson builds prototype fans and tests them for air performance and sound. Finite element stress analysis, computational fluid dynamics (CFD), and resonant frequency testing are other procedures used regularly to help Robinson engineers "design in" optimum reliability and performance. This, together with extensive field... (read more)Browse Fans and Blowers (Industrial) Datasheets for Robinson Fans

They are used extensively for continuous service to 850°F in forced and induced draft applications in the metals, chemical, power generation, paper, rock products, glass, resource recovery, incineration and other industries throughout the world. Designed for Variable Speed Applications. Robinson's AF Series fans are also designed for use with variable-speed... (read more)Browse Fans and Blowers (Industrial) Datasheets for Robinson Fans
NASA application of machined fused silica Materials change proves winner for NASA. Problem: Deep space-based research by NASA called for a high energy solar concentrator that could focus from 3.5" to a faceted point over a 12" length. Designers had initially tried sapphire as the material best suited to this application. However, it failed under Beta tests so NASA turned to a fused silica material but needed precise machining to ensure accuracy. Solution: NASA turned to Insaco. With over 55 years experience in diamond grinding... (read more)Browse Ultra-hard Materials Machining Datasheets for Insaco, Inc.
Air Caster Corporation
Air Caster Air Bearings Air Caster Corporation offers a full range of air bearings for moving loads from a few hundred pounds to over 100,000 pounds. All air bearings are made with a tough wear resistant urethane diaphrapm, giving superior performance compared to other air film devices. The diaphragm is securely attached to a corrosion resistant steel backing. For convenience, all air bearing have a female pipe thread air inlet for direct connection, and a seal ring for slide out mounting (read more)Browse Air Bearings Datasheets for Air Caster Corporation
Nelson Air Corp.
Air Bearing Bushings Air Bearing Bushings. Nelson Air's air bearing bushings can be used for both linear and rotary applications. The LB series of bearings utilize porous bronze air bearing surfaces, which provide excellent bearing stiffness and crash resistance. These bearings operate on standard precision ground shafting and deliver frictionless motion whether moving at low or high speeds. In addition to the standard sizes listed below, custom bushings can be supplied with different lengths and housings to meet (read more)Browse Air Bearings Datasheets for Nelson Air Corp.
Nelson Air Corp.
Air Bearing Spindles Nelson Air has supplied a number of air bearing spindles for a variety of customers. These bearings provide good load capacity and extremely high stiffness with very low runout and are inherently frictionless. This makes them ideal for high speed precision applications. Typical Air Bearing Spindle Features: TIR of ±5 millionths of an inch (up to ±2 available). Load capacity from 1 lb to 350 lbs. Zero Speed to 80,000 rpm Available. Operating pressure from 30 psi to 90 psi. Material: Hardcoat... (read more)Browse Machine Tool Spindles Datasheets for Nelson Air Corp.
Air Bearing Cylinders AB Air Bearings feature a specially shaped stainless steel piston, precisely fitted to a borosilicate glass cylinder, creating a true air bearing airflow effect around the piston. As little as 5 psi applied to the cylinder produces a stiff cushion of air that supports the piston and prevents it from coming in contact with the cylinder wall. The AB Air Bearing provides virtually unlimited piston life, super-clean operation, requires no lubrication, and nearly eliminates friction through the use...
