Pneumatic Automation Components

Air-Mite Devices was founded by S. F. Streicker, John J. Oros and John Skidmore in 1950. In those early days the product line included bench top air presses, control valves and a small series of air cylinders.

Today Air-Mite has expanded its line to include a variety of Pneumatic Automation Components. The current product line includes air arbor presses, four (4) separate series of air cylinders, various series of air and hydraulic valves, several safety circuit components, and many miniaturized accessories. Air-Mite offers a broad range of components for use in production and assembly. Air-Mite components may be found servicing industries such as Packaging, Textiles, Chemicals, Construction, Electronics, Woodworking and many others.

Air-Mite has developed a distribution network primarily focused in the United States with representation in Canada, Puerto Rico, Ireland and several Pacific rim countries.

Quality and speed of delivery remain the primary feature of all products manufactured by Air-Mite Devices. A very competitively priced line of products which can normally be shipped directly from stock. Air-Mite stands for Quality and Service.

Mighty Mite Short Stroke Cylinders

Mighty Mite short stroke cylinders are 65% shorter than conventional cylinders and require 60% less mounting space. Compact and rugged, their low profile makes them ideally suited for clamping fixtures, jig work, high speed cycling and applications with very limited work space areas. Simple and easy to mount, these cylinders have a rapid response and high clamping force relative to their compact size.

DAR Cylinders

Product Variations:

  • Single-Rod
  • Double-Rod

The Air-Mite line of round, non-tie rod cylinders is available in six bore sizes with virtually unlimited stroke lengths. These rugged, hard coated aluminum cylinders are ideally suited for such applications as positioning, actuating, feeding and clamping. DAR cylinders are fully interchangeable with other manufacturers by offering a comparable design and similar stroke and mounting dimensions.
