Pacesetter Systems, Inc.
Air Glide die lifters are available with ball bearings for multidirectional movement or cylindrical bearings for inline movement. Each features extra-large, precision-ground bearings and high-quality o-ring seals for lifting efficiency and durability. These die lifters require only 40 lb. of force to move a typical 2,000-lb. die, according to company officials, reducing the strain on the workforce while also reducing die-changeout time.
The lifters use standard shop air pressure and install easily in standard ANSI T-slots. With no internal air bags or bladders to corrode and crack, Air Glide rollers reportedly are more resistant than other pneumatic rollers to harsh chemicals and lubricants used in metalforming.
Air Glide die lifters are available from stock in sizes of 5⁄8, 3⁄4 and 1 in., in lengths to 72 in. Custom lengths and metric sizes are available.
