All moving machinery vibrates at some forced frequency. When these vibrations are transmitted into and through the supporting structure of the machine and any masses attached to it, they can cause flex fatigue.
Super-Cushion air springs and designed to replace less effective steel springs, and can isolate more than 99 percent of flex fatigue vibration.
The air pressure in Super-Cushion air springs serves as an energy-absorbing medium to provide superior vibration isolation, load levelling and height control.
A single Goodyear Super-Cushion air spring can provide up to 34,000 pounds of linear force and variable amounts of stroke.
They are composed of high-strength rubber or fabric flexible members sealed by retainers at each end.
Capable of rapid actuation, Super-Cushion air springs can be operated vertically, horizontally or at an angle, and can be applied to produce rotary motion.
Goodyear Super-Cushion Air Springs from PIES Australia:
- are easy to install,
- require little maintenance,
- often have a longer service life than air cylinders; and
- are responsive enough to handle high speed, positioning, clamping and stitching operation on equipment.
