Inflatable seals offer a “soft” grip on anything from sand casts in the engine manufacturing process to satellite components. The use of a rubber inflatable seal allows high lifting force without damaging sensitive parts. With multiple inflatable seals, the end user can lift upwards of 20,000 lbs depending on the design of the system. Using backup seals as a fail safe, the design can be a safe and reliable way to move, rotate, and lift sensitive and expensive parts.
Inflatable seals are also used along conveyor lines to stop, move, and lift parts as they move along the line.
