ITT Inc. (NYSE:ITT) announced today that it is introducing a new Compact Automation and Turn-Act Air Springs product line that provides air actuation for linear motion control. These highly durable, air-tight pneumatic actuators are the ideal solution for demanding industrial applications, including the pulp and paper, lumber mill and automotive assembly industries. With products designed for fast and affordable ease of repair, ITT's Air Springs can be overhauled in a matter of minutes in the field.

Acting as both an isolator and actuator, the Compact Automation and Turn-Act Air Springs reduce the harmful effects of vibration in typical linear and angular motion applications, including:
  • Actuators in lift and tilt tables for safe material handling
  • Actuators and vibration isolators in test equipment and motion simulators
  • Actuators for press equipment or part extraction.

"ITT's Compact Automation and Turn-Act cylinder and actuator products offer lots of power in a small package. We are proud to offer one of the largest product selections in the industry, and the addition of Air Springs to our product line-up only adds to our already extensive product offerings," said Shannon Winkler, Product Manager at ITT. "With an experienced customer service staff boasting an average tenure of more than 25 years, we are able to provide leading quality and value on time and every time."

ITT Air Springs offer a favorable stroke-to-compressed-height ratio and have the capacity to accept actuation media such as air, water, nitrogen or anti-freeze. These products can also isolate vibration and regulate load height, allowing for consistent vibration isolation under varying loads. With a long operating life expectancy, these Air Springs can effectively operate within small envelope constraints.

Compact Automation and Turn-Act offer a variety of Air Spring types to meet a variety of actuation or isolation needs including: the Single, Double and Triple Convolute Bellows, Rolling Lobe and Sleeve Types.
