Bespoke Solutions

Air bearings are already used in a number of different ways however we believe that there are also many new opportunities that would benefit from the use of this technology.

At ABL we employ a wealth of design and analysis tools that allow our design engineers to offer you custom solutions tailored to your individual requirements. The use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) with linked structural and thermal analysis underpins a “design through analysis” philosophy which allows ABL’s experienced design engineers to consider a wide range of options before delivering the optimum solution.

Our flexible approach to manufacturing together with extensive use of CNC machining centres enables a cost effective approach to both volume manufacturing and individual, customised solutions.

Contact ABL to discuss any air bearing requirement you may have.
