Industrial Applications for Air Bellows

Air bellows are single acting pneumatic actuators manufactured from a reinforced elastomer with steel end plates containing the filling valve and fixing holes. They can be a useful alternative to conventional pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders due to their compact size and capability to lift heavy loads.

Typical lifting applications for air bellows include:
  • Vertical lifting platforms
  • Presses
  • Scissor lifts (air bellows tilt capability up to 30 degrees)

Air bellows also offer a high degree of vibration isolation, having a very low natural frequency.

Typical vibration isolation applications include:
  • Compressors and generators
  • Electrical transformers
  • Industrial washing machines
