Transition (T-series) Air Bars

New Way® Air Bearings Transition (T-series) Line of air bars is the first to combine our Frictionless Motion® with vacuum pressure for conveying even the most delicate materials reliably. Evenly distributed holes provide vacuum pressure that keeps materials such as glass from leaving the conveyor while our naturally porous carbon substrate creates a uniform air cushion between the two surfaces. This non-contact, frictionless motion eliminates damage to materials caused by touching the conveyor and is ideal for cleanroom environments.

Air is forced through the porous carbon substrate where it must pass through winding passageways to reach the surface. This creates a stiff, uniform cushion of air at the surface which allows fly heights between 20 and 120 microns. Component wear in your assembly is no longer a concern since the parts never come in contact. The stability of the air gaps makes crashes due to pressure gradients a thing of the past.

Air bars are ideal for the flat panel display, semiconductor and solar panel manufacturing industries. The vacuum pressure combined with our Porous Media TechnologyTM provides uniform flattening and prevents lifting as the material travels along the conveyor.

The T-series line of air bars can be easily combined with other air bars in our product line to fit your specific manufacturing process. Please refer to our summary chart to see which products meet your industry’s needs.
