Original Press Release:
Bimba's Narrow Profile Air Table
May 13, 2002, Monee, Illinois - Bimba Manufacturing's Narrow Profile Air Table Actuator (NPA) is a space-efficient slide with a rigid ball bearing rail mounted to the top of a single bore. Two bearing styles are offered (single/double bearing block) to accommodate both lower costs and higher precision/cost applications. It produces a width savings of roughly 50% compared to a Twin Bore of similar bore size.
The NPA actuator features anodized aluminum body and tooling plate. Piston rods are hard chrome plated steel. The cylinder bodies incorporate tracks for efficient mounting of our miniature switch series (MR, MSC, MSK). The bearing system is the same high-performance ball bearing rail used in the TBA series, so you can expect the same precise guiding and load-carrying capacity. The NPA is currently available in a 12mm bore, in either inch/metric versions. Standard options include second bearing block, magnetic position sensing, and US customary threads.
