Air Springs

Air Springs
Product Description

Air Actuation Products for Linear Motion Control


Turn-Act Air Springs are highly durable, precisely engineered and cost-effective for use in a wide variety of actuation and vibration isolation applications. With time-tested designs incorporating natural rubber flex-member construction and corrosion-protected end retainers, Turn-Act Air Springs provide superior quality and performance. As actuators, Turn-Act Air Springs can provide either linear or angular motion.

These air springs offer a favorable stroke-to-compressed-height ratio when compared to air cylinders, and they can accept a wide variety of actuation media such as air, water, nitrogen or anti-freeze. As isolators, Turn-Act Air Springs are effective in reducing the harmful effects of vibration. They can simultaneously isolate vibration and regulate load height as well as allow for consistent vibration isolation under varying loads.

Turn-Act offers a variety of air spring types to meet your actuation or isolation needs. The Single, Double and Triple Convolute Bellows, Rolling Lobe and Sleeve Types are available in a wide range of sizes, with the end retainer style required to suit your specific installation.
