The benefits of air bearings make them ideal for applications in a broad range of markets, from food processing to solar cell manufacturing, from optical lens manufacturing to paper products converting, and many more. Wherever there is a need for precision linear or rotary motion, air bearings are the solution of choice. The resulting frictionless motion provides unparalleled speed and acceleration, sub-nanometer repeatability, high stiffness, straighter motion, zero wear, zero vibration and reduced noise. Porous Media air bearings also provide high-performance characteristics for applications in dusty, dirty environments where lubrication can cause issues resulting in frequent maintenance, downtime and wear.
