Conveying delicate substrates is a major concern during flat panel display (FPD) manufacturing. Any inconsistencies in the motion can damage your products and cause major setbacks.

While air bearing technology has existed for decades, not all are created equal. Orifice air bearings provide a frictionless surface between components but are susceptible to pressure gradients which cause production stopping crashes.

New Way® offers four no-contact solutions that keep glass substrates moving quickly using our Porous Media Technology™.

– PA-series

– T-series

– H-series

– Precision Zone

These air bars force air through a naturally porous carbon substrate instead of machined grooves. The millions of submicron passageways inherently distribute air evenly on the surface of the air bar, creating a stiff, uniform air cushion to float delicate substrates.

Our infographic highlights how each air bar can be used to enhance your FPD process at every stage—from simple or high-speed conveyance to precision motion for accurate inspections.
