Applications

 

The incredible adaptability of our Porous Media™ material allows us to create air bearings suited to a wide range of applications across numerous axes of motion. Our air bars and flat round air bearings enable smooth, single axis motion whilst our tool servo stages provide single axis motion with tool frequencies up to 1000 Hz.

Our air spindles and servo driven rotary stages enable precise rotary motion, as well as our radial air bearings, which can support turbomachinery grade shafts and rotary balancing operations.

When formed into a cylindrical shape, our Air Turns enable non-contact web handling, and every single New Way product meets ISO Class 3 cleanroom conditions. No matter your application, New Way Air Bearings are up to the task.
