Airtechnix Power Cylinders and Presses are ideal for Shearing applications as they are guaranteed to outperform the competition in every aspect of the process:

  • Speed           Quick actuation relying solely on air without inherent requirement to displace a high                      viscosity fluid.
  • Throughput  Individual Speed adjusmtment of extension stroke, coupling, pressure stroke and                      retract stroke allows for reducing the cycle time to the absolute bare minimum.
  • Full Control  Full control of the speed of the Pressure Stroke allows for fine tuning the process to                      materials types and thicknesses.
  • Qualtity        Substantial Quality improvements achieved via Full control over the speed of                      engagement with the work.
  • Cleanliness   Zero Contamination of the work and the environment due to lack of reliance                      on oils and other fluids.
  • SPC               Statistical Process Control via well packcaged integral LVDT with speed resolving                      software allows precise monitoring of speed, coupling and processing of the                      work to ensure that processes are "In Control" and stay "In control".



Airtechnix Presses, are the "Choice" solution for shearing applications. Devoid of any concerns over generated negative pressure that causes cavitation and bubbling consequently destroying the working fluid of air over oil presses once the part is severed from the parent material, Airtechnix Presses suffer none of the above.

The Shearing application is one of the more critical Pressing operations and Airtechnix might have a solution for you depending on what thickness and material you are looking to process.

With the "Controlled Plastic Flow" of the Sheared Joint being a critical factor in the process, Airtechnix Power Stroke dedicated "Speed Control" along with integral "Power Stroke Hard Stop" option will ensure that the same "High Quality" part is achieved every time.
